A Volost Pravlenie in Bessaribia Province

Not the prettiest item -- a 15R money letter to the monks at Mt Athos via Odessa, as usual. It was sent 24/11/1901 from Dibiziyskoe Volost. Pravl., Akkerman Y., Bessarabia G. via Bairamcha, Akkerman Y., Bessarabia G. (on reverse) and then Odessa. Unfortunately, the wax seal on the reverse is not in good shape -- completely illegible and mostly gone (shipping from an ebay selled didn't help any). Still, this is much the oldest Vol. Prav. usage that I've seen from Bessarabia. One Vol Pravl was opened in Bessarabia in 1898, then seven at the beginning of 1901. Thus, it may difficult to find an older example, unless this is part of a correspondence.
