1820 Stampless Cover Signed By Shaker Canaan Ny To Catskill Ny Paper Maker For Sale
Up for sale is an original letter written on good rag paper on October 18th, 1820. It was written by Morell Baker from New Lebanon,NY and sent to Abner Austin, an early paper maker in Catskill, NY Greene County. The content of the letter makes mention of the agreed-upon price for a washer (presumably for the paper mill) and its eventual shipping in one week. An interesting aspect of this correspondence is that Morrel Baker was a member of the Shaker Community in Canaan, NY Columbia County and was a trustee. (There are documents in the library at Winterthur which refer to Baker as a signature witness from the Shaker Community at Canaan). The cover is also stamped in black ink from Hudson with a circle and fancy design. Nice early and interesting letter with both Shaker Community and philatelic interest. Size is 8 3/4 x 14 inches unfolded. Condition is very good for age with just slight soiling at the middle crease and minor soiling at the other folds. Otherwise clean. Please email with any questions. Winning buyer please add 1.50 for P&H. Payment by Paypal preferred. Thanks for looking and good luck.
