THIS WAS ACQUIRED A NUMBER OF YEARS AGO AND APPARENTLY WAS PART OF AN sale HOUSE SALEON THE SLIP OF PAPER THAT ACCOMPANIED THE LETTER IS WRITTEN
CIVIL WAR TRANSPORT, ARAGO, COVER & LETTER
IT GOES ON TO SAY--ADDRESS LEAF AND LETTER, FROM THE STEAMER "ARAGO" POSTMARKED JUNE 2 (1855), SENT TO PARIS. INSIDE IS AN AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED, IN FRENCH, UNTRANSLATED. --THE "ARAGO WAS OPERATIONAL FROM 1853 UNTIL 1867. DURING THE CIVIL WAR IT SERVED AS A UNION TROOP TRANSPORTER.
IT STATES THE CONDITION IS --LIGHT SOILING, OTHERWISE VERY GOOD CONDITION.
THERE ARE SOME STAINS ON FRONT WHERE IT IS ADDRESSED FROM THE 'ARAGO' TO PARIS. THIS FRONT IS ALL HANDWRITTEN AS IS THE CONTENTS OF THE LETTER. THERE ARE SOME PENCIL NOTATIONS ON PARTS OF THE LETTER .
