Lot 795

three 1797 folded letters from the same correspondence sent from Mount Holly, New Jersey to Philadelphia, each endorsed "Care of the Stage", fine to very fine

These folded letters were carried from Mount Holly by stage to Cooper’s Ferry. At Cooper’s Ferry, the stage was placed aboard the stage boat and ferried across the Delaware River to Philadelphia at the foot of Arch Street, not far from the location to where the folded letters were addressed. Several stage lines passed through Mount Holly at this time on the way to Philadelphia so it is not possible to identify which specific stage line carried these letters.
