Description:

Business firm in Dixon, Illinois dealing in "Undershirts, Drawers, Hosiery." ANS, 1p, 8" X 10½", Dixon, IL, 1871 November 16. Addressed to "Messrs. Bowen Hunt and Winslow" of Chicago. Very good. Discreetly three-punched at left margin, not affecting text. Decorative letterhead featuring a variety of Victorian typefaces and listing the names of owners William H. Godfrey, James B. Charters and Gorham P. Low Jr. Writing to this early Chicago dry goods firm one month after the Chicago Fire of October 8-10, this attractive letter opens: "We take great pleasure in addressing you once more in the line of business, and welcoming you again to the front, after having passed through so fearful an ordeal." -- then the business at hand, informing the Chicago firm "We could not fill your order for a case of Scarlet Shirts & Drawers @ $17 5% 30 days & Commission, we could not give them to you through Enos Brown & Co for less than $19.00 5% 30 days." Intriguing if cryptic -- suggests that prices rose immediately following the fire. (Bowen Hunt and Winslow joined Enos Brown & Co. after the fire and shifted their focus from dry goods to real estate.) Possibly in the hand of one of Godfrey, Charters & Low's principals, though not verifiable. Attractive and interesting Chicago Fire item. Bookseller Inventory #
