Civil War-Stamped and Mailed Rare Sanitary Fair/Sanitary Commision Envelope & Letter #S208
This is an interesting letter; granted, we always look for a letter written from the front with details about a battle, but this is a letter with great content and sent in a very rare envelope from the Sanitary Commission and the Northwestern Soldiers' Fair. This one is a detailed letter anxious to purchase a quantity of books.
I especially enjoyed how the envelope was addresses. Can you imagine how such letters just went to where they should. A tad different today. But just a name and instead of an address "About Some Books." It's great!
