RARE UPSIDE DOWN WRITING ON STAMPLESS COVER - AUBURN NEW YORK AUBURN NEW YORK 1841 EXTRAORDINARY HORIZONTAL DOUBLE WRITTEN STAMPLESS FOLDED LETTER TO DEERFIELD NEW HAMPSHIRE. MUST SEE SCANS

First stampless folded letter we have seen where the text is written horizontally from top to bottom and then the page is flipped and the text continues down the page between the original lines.  Two pages written in this manner.  While it looks impossible to read when you scan the page, it is surprisingly easy to read.  M. H. Wells writes to his sister Elisabeth. Exceptionally long missive. Mostly general news, but lots of little comments including a visit to Dr. Mills where he "saw Miss Henrietta and was very pleasantly received. I think she is a fine young lady but what a fat chub. But I will not extend my remarks." Paper has some foxing and there is a small separation on page 3. Auburn postmark is complete but light. PAID is written by hand and also in red stamp. The double writing is what makes this letter truly extraordinary.
