A rare and impressive franking, mailed during the four month period of 'Mosquera' Postal rates. Cert. Moorhouse (2012).rnrnNote: On August 28, 1861 Tomas Cipriano de Mosquera altered the existing Postal Rates by memorandum. He ordered that the internal Colombian rates of April 1846 be re-introduced, namely 10 centavos for an inter-state letter and 15 centavos from one state to another. Just four letters are known during the four month period between August and December 1861, a new organisation and set of tariffs being introduced on January 1, 1862.rnrnProvenance: Collection Newbury.rn                   Collectcion Charles Jewell, Corinphila sale 44, 7-16 March 1957, lot 4199.rn                   Collection Maurice Burrus.rn                   Collection Dr Norman Hubbard, Nov 1984, lot 48.rnrn
