TAFT, HELEN H. (1861-1943)

# 7053

U.S. First Lady – 1909-13

Franking Signature, “Helen H. Taft, Free,” on a 3 ½” x 5 ½” black-bordered mourning envelope – due to the death of her husband, William Howard Taft, the previous spring – also addressed by Mrs. Taft, to “Mr. George A. Stare, 1152 Muirfield Road, Los Angeles, California.”

The envelope is lightly and evenly toned, with light soiling and wear. There is a small hole just above the address, which is intersected by the oddly positioned October 23, 1930, Washington, D.C. postmark.

WILSON, EDITH BOLLING (1872-1961)

U.S. First Lady – 1915-21

Franking Signature, “Edith Bolling Wilson,” on a 3 ½” x 6” black-bordered mourning envelope, postmarked Washington, D.C., March 12, 1924 – shortly after the February 3 death of her husband, Woodrow Wilson. Addressed in another hand, to “The American Legion, Allein Post No. 3, Vicksburg, Mississippi.”
