20th President. Patriotic free franked envelope with a “40th Congress / House of Representatives” background design, 5.75×3.5, addressed to “W.J. Ford Esq. / 93 Water St. / Cleveland / Ohio” and franked near the top, “J. A. Garfield MC”. Envelope also bears “Washington D.C. Congress Dec 2 ” postmark.
In fine condition, docketing at lower left which appears to be another “J.A. Garfield” signature but we cannot verify if that is in Garfield’s hand. A stunning free franked envelope.
