Chilean Postal Stationery
November 10, 1891

This early postal stationery was sent from Talca to Concepción by a Pastor.
The Concepci
ón receiver doesn't have a date.
Take a look at Chile.  Concepción is on the Pacific south of Santiago.
Talca is inland about 200 km north northeast toward Santiago from Concepción.*

Although I can't confirm it, I believe the value is 5c.
I can't provide any catalog information either.

*Thanks to Larry for helping locate Talca.
