Blood's Penny Post, (1c) black, Henry Clay (#15L18) with grid in framed oval cancel, with "Blood's Penny Post Philada. Jul 12 10½ A.M. 1858" circular datestamp, on oversize orange cover to local street address, which is crossed out and forwarded to "No. 1424 Spruce St., Philada."

This empty envelope weighs ½ ounce, with contents it would have been in excess of ½ ounce. Evidently Blood's did not charge for overweight letters, up to an unknown limit. Also, since this cover was forwarded, evidently Blood's did not charge for forwarding to a local address (or at least did not mark an additional fee).
