Domestic Mail (1): “Matanzas”
The earliest postmark used from Matanzas dates
back to 1814. It was a straight-line type similar
to that illustrated, except that the letters were
inclined slightly to the right. This particular
folded letter shows the third type of marking used
at Matanzas. This letter was written on July 15,
1830, and received in Havana by the addressee on
Tome I, p.4: Matanzas to Havana.
15 July, 1830 (cover).
