EXTREMELY FINE APPEARANCE. A CHOICE COMBINATION OF THIS 11-STAR FLAG DESIGN AND THE "SEMPER PARATUS" MOTTO OF THE QUITMAN LIGHT ARTILLERY, USED ON A COVER FROM FLORIDA.

Semper Paratus is a Latin phrase meaning "Always Ready." It is currently used as the motto of the U.S. Coast Guard. The Quitman Light Artillery was an independent battery mustered into service on April 9, 1861, made up of men from Adams County, Mississippi. R. T. English was at first listed as 3rd lieutenant of the battery, but by November 1861 he had evidently risen to captain.
