There was a Golden Rule Society in the 1850 & 60's that created a Cinderella, letting the recipient of a letter know they had paid all or part of the postage, and asked to be reimbursed. I do not know anything about this Cinderella, except that it is religious and very early. Of course, it refers to the Golden Rule:

Matthew 7:12, Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.


Many thanks to Mr. John Denune for this informations.

Very nice, most cinderellas from this time period did not survive.

I'd like to ask where the scan came from.
Not quite sure what I am looking at.

I think I am seeing a space where a stamp once lay ?

I found this seal stuck on the inner cover of an old diary from the year 1868. I scanned the entire page, and than cropped only the place with stamp.

If you would like to see, I can upload a scan of the entire page...

After some research, I think I found the source of that cinderella, which is highlighted in the attached ad that was one of several sayings available from a Chicago publisher, Sewell & Miller:



Interestingly I found this buried within a series of articles in a magazine called "The Little Corporal: Fighting Against Wrong; and for the Good, the True, and the Beautiful" dated August 1870.

Great job done, Wt1! Thanks!

So, it seems that "Evangelical Press Association", and not the "Golden Rule Society", issued these cinderellas

Thanks, all. Since posting my research, I discovered that the publisher of the advertised stamps was the same firm that published the magazine, too.

Not remotely connected,
but perhaps fitting of an aged 1868 diary,

A table, showing the length of the day at var latitudes.

Written in his own hand, by one Christopher Colombus.
(columbian library of seville)
