Liberty Va. Mar. 15 (1865).
Clearly struck circular datestamp ties 10c Blue, Die A (11),
full to large margins, used with 3c Rose (65),
corner slightly clipped, tied by quartered cork with matching "Old Point Comfort Va. Mar. 24" double-circle datestamp on brown homemade cover to Knoxville Tenn. (under Federal occupation), endorsed "Per Flag of Truce via Fortress Monroe",
slight toning - an intriguing usage - the addressee (David A. Deadrick) had two sons in the Confederate army; one (Oakley) was captured in 1863 and held prisoner until the war's end; the other (Inslee), was probably the sender of this flag-of-truce letter, posted at Liberty Va. and exchanged at Fort Monroe
