There is also a very fine large double-oval Washington D.C. "DEAD LETTER OFFICE/P.O. DPt" undated mark on the reverse. This letter was posted towards the end of the brief period (25 May 1861 to 2 May 1862) that mails for the southern states were forwarded at the risk of the sender. Very rare thus; most examples of the returned Civil War covers are dated in early 1861, before the British P.O. advised people of the problems and risks involved in sending letters to the southern states.
