CSA 7-L, 5¢ blue pair tied by pen cancels and light blurry MONTGOMERY / ALA // MAY / 31 / 1864 cds on a small legal cover to Hon. Probate Judge, Tuskaloosa, Alaba which originally had a Probate Court certificate enclosed. This, with other legal covers, was the subject of an M. Clinton McGee article in the September 1959 issue of the Confederate Stamp Album (predecessor to The Confederate Philatelist). He related the interesting story of William Forrester and one of his slaves who apparently met their deaths in a common disaster in 1859. Probate dragged on for many years, understandably complicated by the war and a contested will. McGee was certainly the one to tell this story as he was a law professor at the University of Alabama and incorporated the Confederate Stamp Alliance in Alabama. When he wrote this article, the certificate was still enclosed. Somewhere along the line, it was separated from the cover which is offered alone here. Top back flap missing. Ex McGee. $160.
