Description:

1861 1c blue (#63) two singles with cork cancel on front of wrapper to Canadice, Livingston County, N.York.  Unknown origin, marked "Printed Matter.". This wrapper must date after July 1, 1863 when printed matter rate was increased to 2c up to 4 ounces.

The printed matter rate forbid any hand-written messages to be enclosed; this home-made wrapper evidently was made out of an old re-used letter on ruled paper.
