A STRIKING AND RARE FOUR-COLOR COMBINATION OF UNITED STATES AND FRENCH STAMPS PAYING THE DOUBLE TREATY RATE VIA ENGLAND AND FRENCH FORWARDING POSTAGE.

This cover is addressed to Benjamin Rush Esq., care of Hottinguer & Co. at 38 Rue de Provence, Paris. Rush was a loyalist of President Andrew Johnson. The Johnson papers contain many laudatory letters from Rush, including one offering congratulations on the President's escape from conviction by the Senate after his impeachment. We have been unable to determine if he is the same person who sent the famous Retaliatory Rate "Rush Cover" to France which bears a strip of six of the 10c 1847 Issue, but we suspect he may be. The Rush family was very prominent in 18th and 19th Century America, including Declaration of Independence signor Dr. Benjamin Rush
