Is August 20th “Mid-August” according to the postal service?

I asked for a pre-stamped envelope and was given this with the PURPLE MARTIN stamp.  I couldn’t believe it; I didn’t see it until I after I’d bought it, before which the clerk had told me that it was the only one in the size for what I was sending, which was just a letter.  The arrow is the first part of what I wrote on the outside of the envelope before I mailed it, which was similar to what I wrote about it here.
