Circa 1865 envelope addressed to Governor "Parson" Brownlow...

Item #688930

January 01, 1865

Stamped envelope address to Governor W. G. Brownlow, Knoxville, Tennessee.  The two, red, 3 cent, canceled stamps, a postmark from Brooklyn, New York, circa. 1865, and a penned note to the left side which a previous owner noted is penned in Brownlow's hand, but I have my doubts. In any case a nice envelope addressed to the very controversial "Parson" Brownlow.
