    David Snow in his chapter on Pomeroy's in the Independent Mails book notes that he has only recorded 15 examples of this stamp on cover. Of particular interest to the postal historian, this letter notes that postage is now lower and the writer hopes that there will be more correspondence in the future. Based on the content it appears that the letter originated in the New York City area.
