Docketed "1845 August 6, Powers & Day". Catskill and Albany are only 34 miles apart, so this letter must be double rate, in excess of ½ ounce, as letter contents mention a copy of a legal document enclosed to be returned to sender. The manuscript notation on front "Paid. P & D" are the initials of the sender (Powers & Day).
