Description:

"CHALSN. SC NOV 21" red 30mm circular datestamp and ms. "25" collect rate (Act of 1816, over 400 miles) on cover to Dover, N.H. Directive "mail". Docketed "Robert Maxwell Nov. 21 1822" on side flap.

"Portsmouth" is crossed out in address and "Dover" added, evidently by sender before posting. This is not a forwarded use, in which case it would have had additional 6c postage charged in addition to a Portsmouth postmark.

The sender, Robert Maxwell, was elected from 1819 to 1823 as an officer of the New England Society of Charleston, S.C. and served on the Committee of Charity during those years.
