This stampless letter has a circular date stamp for PHIL [Philadelphia], but since the right side of the letter is torn off and missing, there’s no postal rate to see. It is addressed to Jane Peir[ce], to the care of Thomas Maule, Richmond, Virgin[ia]. and is a lengthy two page letter written by ‘Thy Husband’ Caleb Peirce. Luckily, all the writing is on the side of the sheet opposite the front cover. The headline is Philadelphia, 6 month 4th, 1815, First day evening. This is Quaker style dating, of course.
