Siegel Dubois lot 2085 and New York mails, c1788

Bernard: Thanks for your idea (13 March, 20:04) that this cover & its letter was put under an outer cover in New York. My sloppy writing obscured my thought that maybe it was put under cover in Montreal. Perhaps Montreal thought a letter to Wentworth (especially one addressed “His Excell’y” - referring to his role as last Royal Governor of New Hampshire) might be delayed or stopped in New York. If so, an outer cover might help get it through.

More generally, was there any delay or disruption of mail to Britain or to British colonies (American, West Indian, etc) at New York & other US ports around 1788?
