Date Published: 1860

Description: This envelope, handwritten with the return address, place, and date, is postmarked over the signature "A Tennyson." The instruction to "Pay Mrs. Andrews on order twenty-one pounds" is also in Tennyson's hand. An ornate stamp from the National Provincial Bank of England-Newport indicates that this used envelope was reused as a check. 4.5 x 7 inches, no place, November 15, 1860. Several folds and creases and lightly stained; very good(-) condition.

Comments: Mrs. Andrews is likely to be Joanna (known as 'Annie') Andrews, who is variously described as the "cook" or "housekeeper" at Farringford, where Tennyson lived on the Isle of Wight. Her sister, Elizabeth, was the nurse in the same household.

If this website is the closest I ever come to shopping in NY, NY, it has been a pleasure. I have checked the store on-line, and you may have to block me out -- it looks very tempting. It may replace my childhood fantasy of getting locked in our small town library. One little old lady and sevens floors of old books--Heaven. Thanks! - Katherine James
