Confederate States of America,
Notice to Postmasters.--Owing to the urgent accessibly, and great demand for Postage Stamps at points where large bodies of our troops are new stationed, it will be impossible, at present, to supply many of the others offices in the Confederacy with Stamps.
In a short time the facilities for manufacturing them will be greatly increased, and every office will then be furnished with ple supply.
