(Stampless cover with adhesive fraudulently added). Letter of Thos Merrill written at Long Wharf Boston on November 5, 1847. Franked T. Merrill PM Enfield NH. Also crayon "f" (for free) in red. But also blackish five cent 1847 with red Boston CDS of FEB 2 cancelling the stamp. The letter gives no hint of an enclosure, so it may or may not be an overweight free letter. But the February 2 CDS is discordant with the dating of the content.

Dipping and view by transmitted light shows a red "N" under the stamp, from the original November postmark. Stamp added -- cover not good. The certificate is genuine but wrong.
