This c1850's cover is for a Wells Fargo Express Steamboat. Nevada [City] regular Wells Fargo stamp cancels 3c Pink stamp. Stamped PAID on upper right. Addressed to Noisy Carrier. Book & Stationary, San Francisco. Noisy Carrier was open from c1851 to 1856 helping to identify the date of this cover. Charles Proctor Kimball worked for a while as a public crier for Washington Bartlett's Daily Journal of Commerce. Kimball was extra loud when he got into it and became known as "the noisy carrier." He would open a stationary store located at Long Wharf. But he is most famous for the publication of the first San Francisco Directory in 1860! There is a lot going on this overall extremely nice cover.
