VERY FINE ADAMS EXPRESS THROUGH-THE-LINES USE, WHICH ENTERED THE CONFEDERATE MAILS AT AUGUSTA, GEORGIA, AND WITH A SCARCE COMBINATION OF BOTH THE LOUISVILLE AND AUGUSTA ADAMS DATESTAMPS.
This cover was sent during the early period when Adams southbound express mail was not put into the C.S.A. mail stream and postmarked at the Nashville post office. In this case, it was carried in the Adams network to Augusta and entered the C.S.A. mails there. Very few of these uses bear both Louisville and Augusta Adams handstamps.
