I am reading it as Mirehous Point, but not getting any Google hits on that or anything close.

Thanks James! I think it's Anson Priest Filer (1811-1871), as near as I can tell using Google. Could you link me to where you found his occupation? I did think the last was "point" but couldn't get the "warehouse".

Found a couple of pages with his letterhead.

edit. - sorry, the link won't load properly. You'll have to copy and paste to get to the page.

I always find with these, if you can't figure out one aspect, it's best to approach from another direction.
Glad to help.

Look again. I can see it. Warehouse Point. There is a trolley museum there. The NYNHHRR ran thru it.

Ray, I believe its #64, date is January 21 and I think its 1862. Lower left ball is very indistinct (I can't really even see it) and the shading on the left number three is indistinct (no real contrast) from the background latticework, which is blurry throughout. You've seen it, but that's a pretty good while ago (probably over a year), and thought it was a pink.
