July 15, 1837 New York cancel - 183/4 Rate Marking
(Looks like 181/2 - See 1836 Thomas R Hazard Letter for explanation)

The Postal Act of March 3, 1825, (effective May 1, 1825) increased the zone rate for 150 to 400 miles to 183/4 cents. Previously, (Act of April 9, 1816) the rate was set at 181/2 cents. 

The Letter contains Eleven Invoices on one multi-invoice form - Captain Woodhouse on board the sailing ship Vicksburg at New York to Roland G. Hazard - Peace Dale Mills in Peace Dale, Rhode Island. All eleven invoices are for textile merchandise listed as bales to be delivered in New Orleans, Louisiana. The invoices are on two sheets, however I believe it was originally one sheet that has been separated, as it was sent at the single sheet rate of 183/4 cents.
