Stampless cover with a weak but recognizable strike of the Caldwell, Tex CDS dated 7 DEC (1861) and handstamp PAID 5(ms) Type A all in BLUEwhich is listed in the CSA catalog as an unsupported listing. Thiscover certainly supports the listing. Folded plain lettersheet (thepage with the letter has been removed some time in the past) addressedto Rev Joel T. Daves, Waco, Texas. The addressee was the pastor of theWaco Methodist Church at the beginning of the war. Very clean cover.
