JAMES D. CAMERON (1833-1918). Senator from Pennsylvania and Secretary of War (1876-1877) during President Grant’s administration. August 9, 1876-Dated U.S. Centennial Period, with United States Centennial issue U.S. Stamp Card. Signed, “J. D. Cameron - Secretary of War,” 3” x 4.5,” VG. This signature card, from President Grant’s fifth Secretary of War, has been preserved in its original envelope for more than a hundred years. The envelope itself, used for this is a Stamped with the U.S. Centennial 3 cent green stamp (Scott U221). This envelope catalogs $50.00 in the 2005 Scott Specialized Catalog. This envelope has in addition to the usual postal markings, another reading “Advertised Aug. 22.” The envelope had no street address, and the post office did not know where to deliver, so they apparently advertised to find the recipient. This envelope is in nice condition, now toned especially around the edges, with a little postal smudging received in transit. A nice autograph, with an established provenance, and a scarce Postal envelope. (2 items).
