The Dr. Carmen A. Puliafito Collection of Independent Mails continued...

J.H. Van Benthuysens News Office
Lot Sym. Lot Description  
294 c ImageFrom J. H. Van Benthuysen's News-Office, No 223 State Street, Lansingburgh. Red double-line circle handstamp with "PAID" handstamp struck separately in blank area (slightly doubled, which proves it was struck separately) on Jan. 10, 1845 folded letter from Lansingburgh N.Y. to Philip Dater of Dater, Miller & Co., located at Front Street in New York City, docketed in error with July month instead of January

VERY FINE. ONE OF THREE RECORDED EXAMPLES OF VAN BENTHUYSEN'S NEWS OFFICE EXPRESS MARKING AND THE ONLY EXAMPLE OF THE "PAID" VERSION.

Based on what little is known about Van Benthuysen's News Office, it is probable that he collected letters and payment for Independent Mail service from local patrons and arranged to have the mail brought down the Hudson River by one of the better-known Independent Mail companies. J. H. Van Benthuysen is listed at 262 State Street in Lansingburgh in the 1844 and 1845 editions of The Gavel, a Masonic publication.
