Large even margins, cancelled by heavily impressed red "Paid" cancel (tied by impression thru stamp and lettersheet), red "Boyd's City Express Post Mar. 6 9 O'C" oval datestamp for local delivery on folded cover to New York City street address, receipt docketing "Friendly Sons of St. Patrick", light soiling, Very Fine and enigmatic use, Pomeroy's Letter Express discontinued service gradually beginning in August 1844, but covers are known dated as late as September 16, 1844, the Boyd's oval on this letter came into use in September 1844, therefore, as a March 1845 cover it does not seem possible that Pomeroy could have been involved, however, the physical characteristics of the cover - notably the "Paid" tying the stamp where the serifs of the "P"are impressed thru the stamp and lettersheet - are convincing enough that we feel this represents an attempted (and successful?) late use of the Pomeroy's stamp, it is also interesting that this "Paid" marking was never used by Pomeroy, but is exactly like the type used by Hale & Co., if Hale did, in fact, carry this letter into New York City with the Pomeroy stamp affixed, this use becomes all the more fascinating, with 1998 and 2007 P.F. certificates
