About this Item

According to a previous owner, this is the undated front of an envelope in Lafayette's handwriting. Not dated, but circa 1779, with a New York postmaster's stamp having "Jan 13" but no year. The slightly faded handwriting reads: "Daniel Jackson (esq.?) of the Revolutionary / Army / Boston / Massachuset". A previous owner has written in ink in the lower right corner "Handwriting of La fayette". The British occupied New York City from the later 1770's through 1783, so I don't know how Lafayette could send a letter during the war, unless the post office was outside the city, and was from a New York state post office. Measures about 2-3/4 inches by 5 inches, is somewhat soiled, with 3 closed edge tears. Size: 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 15617
