River and Lake Mail

Bill Welch also had an interest in River and Lake mail and here are some nice items from his collection of these.

The Nicaragua Mail Steam Navigation and Trading Company had the exclusive privilege for the navigation of Lake Nicaragua and the San Juan river. This dated from 1877 but was purchased for $300,000 in 1891 by the Maritime Canal Company.

Two lovely covers from Paraguay.
