VERY FINE APPEARANCE. ONLY TWELVE EXAMPLES OF THE CELEBRATED HANGING LINCOLN ENVELOPE ARE RECORDED. AN OUTSTANDING AND HISTORIC CONFEDERATE PATRIOTIC.

The Hanging Lincoln design is widely recognized as the most distinctive of all Confederate patriotics. In this extraordinary cartoon, President Lincoln is hanging upside down from a tree limb, with his symbolic axe and fence rail tied around his neck. The caption reads "Abe Lincoln the destroyer. He once split Rails. Now he has split the Union." To the left and right is the caption "The penalty of disregarding the constitution. Impeached, deposed, Tried and convicted" (there is a spelling correction from "diposed" to "deposed"). Standing beside Lincoln is a mustachioed Winfield Scott, labeled "Old Fuss n Feathers", dropping his sword and exclaiming "My glory is gone for ever." On the ground is the Union flag, captioned "The stars and stripes lie in the dust, Never to rise." A star at left has the caption "The southern star is rising" and the Confederate 11-star flag towers above with the caption "The stars and bars shall for ever wave triumphant." Along the bottom is the imprint "Copyright claimed. HM & WC Box 417 Nashville Tenn."

According to a census by the late John R. Hill Jr. (updated with two new discoveries), there are twelve genuine Hanging Lincoln patriotics (listed in date order): 1) Jul. 25, 1861, Marshall Tex. Paid 10; 2) Aug. 21, 1861, Nashville Ten., two 5c provisionals; 3) Aug. 30, 1861, Athens La. "Paid X", ex Hall (Siegel Sale 840, lot 27, realized $13,000); 4) Nov. 2, 1861, Bowling Green Ky., ex Dr. Howard Green (Siegel Sale 822, lot 225, realized $28,000); 5) Jan. 1, 1862, Nashville Ten., 5c Olive Green, the cover offered here; 6) Jan. 4, 1862, Nashville Ten., 5c Olive Green; 7) Feb. 20, 1862, Cumberland Gap Ten., ms.

In addition, there is a genuine envelope with fake markings and a stamp added.

Three large margins with part of adjoining stamps on two sides, in at left and small bit overlapping edge, tied by ms. cancel (cracked in places) on narrow wrapper band around original August 26, 1863, edition of the The Tri-Weekly Telegraph newspaper, "Houston Tex. Aug. 26" (slug below date) circular datestamp in margin of newspaper

A VERY FINE AND REMARKABLE USAGE OF THE 2-CENT GREEN LITHOGRAPH ON A TEXAS NEWSPAPER PUBLISHED BY E. H. CUSHING OF TRANS-MISSISSIPPI EXPRESS FAME.

The Houston Telegraph was published by E. H. Cushing, who also operated an express mail service between Texas and river offices along the Mississippi. Cushing's express started as early as 1862 and operated until it was banned by the Confederate P.O. Dept. in 1864. Postmaster General Reagan was unwilling to tolerate the loss of revenue to the department -- Cushing required only a 10c stamp per letter, while the post office charged 40c for their Trans-Mississippi Express.

This edition of the Telegraph contains several fascinating news accounts -- for example, headlines include "List of Casualties in the Battle of Gettysburg, Pa. -- Fourth Texas Regiment", "By Pony Express -- Our Special Dispatches -- Telegraphed from Beaumont", reports from "Headquarters, District of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona", and "Ladies' Fashions". Advertisements include rewards for return of runaway slaves and a notice from a man whose wife left him that he will not honor her debts.

The condition of the newspaper is excellent. A small acidified spot has been reinforced with archival tape, and there are typical minor edge tears and nicks.

Our Levi records contain only six Texas usages of the 2c Lithograph, of which this is the only newspaper.
