The Republic of Cuba (11)
Another example of a World War I censored cover, only
this time censored by American authorities. Posted at
Havana on April 13, 1918, this letter was taken by steamship
either to Key West or to New York. There are no backstamps
on the reverse of the letter, and without them, we cannot
say positively what the route was.
However, since New York was the main mail distribution
center for foreign mails, it is most likely that this
letter was opened, examined by the censor, and resealed
at New York, before being forwarded to the addressee at
Vol II, p78: Havana to Chicago.
13 April, 1918.
