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.

I have just returned from visiting NY and your store. I immediately came to the site to see what else you had ... am I in trouble! I could have spent hours (ok, more hours) there! The staff was wonderful! My husband and I are avid readers (of everything) and we will be contacting you again I am sure. Thank you so much! - Tammy Z.
