|VA2704||CSA #1 Stone 1 (not
plated) tied by the Tudor
Hall, Va CDS
16 FEB (1862). Orange paper cover addressed to Mr. C. Y. Thomas,
Virginia State Sentator, Richmond, Va. Period docking indicates that
the cover was sent by Dr. Jas Semple and that the letter, which is no
longer with the cover, was dated 14 FEB 1862. Small piece of bottom back flap missing, otherwise a Very Fine cover.
As a state senator, C. Y. Thomas was against secession and tried to keep Virginia in the Union. In spite of this, he served during the war as the Virginia Commonwealth Attorney and was an agent for the distribution of supplies to needy familes of Confederate soldiers.
