with a large white
transient printing flaw above the “CE” of “CENTS” (CC 1-1-v7
in the new Confederate catalog) (margin just touches at the top) tied by a partial
strike of the Culpeper
CDS (date not apparent). Addressed to W. W. Deatherage Esq, Flint Hill,
Rappk (Rappahanock) County, Va. Small but complete cover.
William Waters Deatherage (1817-1864) was the Colonel of the 34th Regiment Virginia Militia, a short lived unit that was in Confederate service for only a few weeks in July 1861 and took part in the Battle of First Manassas campaign. Col Deatherage is listed as a fairly wealthy resident of Flint Hill, Va on the Federal Census of 1860, but his profession is not noted. The "Esqr" suggests that he was either a lawyer and/or a large landowner.
