Keilmansegge P.M.," envelope slightly reduced at right and small nick top right corner, Very Fine, a appealing early Reconstruction-era military cover demonstrating the postal system challenges in mail handling; pictured in Briggs pg 52 and Confederate Philatelist Vol 35, No 6, pg 213rnAfter the war, The Federal Post Office at Apalachicola was re-established on September 25, 1865 with Eugene Keilmansegge as the postmaster.

The cover was probably carried by ship to Apalachicola as, at the time, there was no direct mail service to Marianna had been established. The Marianna post office did not reopen until October 2, 1865 which can explain Keilmansegge's request for the 3c: there was no receiving postmaster in Marianna to collect the 3c due on the letter.rnMajor Cutler was a battalion commander in the 2nd Maine Cavalry which saw service in Florida during 1865.
