"20¾" rating for 18¾¢ postage plus 2¢ ship fee; light overall toning, a Very Fine use.

During the period of the Texas Republic 1836-1845, a regular service between Galveston and New Orleans was operated with an agent based in New Orleans for the "Texian Post Office". One of the vessels providing the service circa 1838-42 was the Columbia, a 140 ton side paddle steamer built in 1835 at Cincinnati Ohio. This letter was surely brought down the Missouri-Mississippi rivers to New Orleans by steamboat. At New Orleans, Ricker sent it by the Gulf steamboat "Columbia", either via Galveston or Brazos.
