Posted at the Postal Station Klyastits, Bess. gub. (Akkermann uezd) on 19 October 1893, serial number 2.

Addressed to Station Kaushany in the volost of Tarakliya, (Bendery uezd).

Transited Tarutino (Akkerman uezd) on 19 October 1893, serial number 2.

Arrival mark of Postal Otdelenie Kaushany on 20 October 1893, serial number 1.

All locations are within the same guberniya.

Kiryushkin and Robinson in their "List of Post Offices in the Russian Empire" state that both Klyastits and Kaushany switched from a post station to a post otdelenie on 1891.0101.

Nice -- Bessarabia is an interesting province with not a huge amount of mail

There are many very interesting items remaining to be discovered.
