Content: Used position 27R. A single rate letter that traveled a distance over 300 miles, from Cincinnati to Detroit, dated August 10 of an unknown year. The letter is addressed to J. W. Brooks Esqr. The townmark was designed for use on stampless mail. The "10" under the date is a collect rating mark, which was inappropriate for this prepaid cover. At best, it is a restatement of the rate in this case.
