This folded lettersheet / stampless letter has a faintcircular date stamp forBALTIMORE Md. MAR 4, a 5 cents rate, a note that it was to go via Hagerstown,and is addressed toMrs Dinah Monn, Quincy post office, Franklin county, Pa.,and is an approximateone page letter written byJohn Monn Jur. to 'Dearwife'.The dateline is March 4th 1849.

President Taylor was going to be inaugurated on March 5, 1849, and that would account for the writer saying there was no lodging to be had in D.C.

Some abstracts:

"we have arived in Baltimore yesterday by 10 o clock safe & well we learnt here that all places in Washington city & vicinity was taken up for lodgeing we have met with two men who lives in the neighborhood of Gettisburg & advised us to remain in Baltimore till Monday morning at 3 o clock & be in Washington at day light which we intend to do."

".... I never saw the pike as bad since I traveled it tell Mrs Anderson that Mr Anderson is well ..."

"we calculate to return to Baltimore by wednesday evening ...."

Condition of the letter rates good. As usual with stampless letters, after writing on one or more sides of a sheet of paper, the letter was folded several times and mailed. Please note that most stampless letters have faults such file folds, tears at and opposite the sealing wax area, and some stains / wear / tear here and there. I hope the scan gives you a general idea of the condition.

An interesting letter good for genealogy and history research. See my other sales for similar items.
