Domestic Mail (3): “Puerto Príncipe”
The Puerto Príncipe postmark struck on this folded
letter was applied with an oily ink, which has soaked
into the paper and discolored it. It was written on October
5, 1833, and received in Havana on October 16.
This postmark is known from Puerto Príncipe for
the period 1803 through 1838. The numeral “2”
represents 2 reales postage due, payable by the addressee.
