Content: Used position 65L. Dated August 27, 1849, this letter was addressed to Toronto, Canada West. It was prepaid with a single 10ý stamp, which was a single rate for a distance in excess of 300 miles. The letter went to the Canadian exchange office at Queenston UC. Since Canadian postage could not be prepaid on cross-border covers at that time, the office at Queenston rated it "4 ý" pence collect from the recipient in Toronto. This rate paid the Canadian postage from the border to Toronto.
