VERY FINE APPEARANCE. A SCARCE AND DESIRABLE PATRIOTIC COVER TO AUSTRIA AND FORWARDED TO GERMANY, FROM THE FAMOUS DR. ANGELL CORRESPONDENCE.

Covers are known sent to him in France, Italy, England, Germany and Austria, plus a few forwarded to other destinations. Dr. Angell was an art collector and undoubtedly appreciated the wide variety of Civil War patriotic envelopes mailed to him overseas.
