About twenty years ago I purchased these three period envelopes, I think they were five bucks each. I liked the graphics on them. What also impressed me was the simplicity of the addresses.

I have always loved these covers. I like they are addressed. Are the letters with the covers? Either way they are great!

Unfortunately there were no letters, just the envelopes.
Sort of like old telephone numbers, just so simple. Back then such as on Shelter Island, the post office clerk probably knew everyone on the island. The people would probably pick up their mail at the local P. O., which the clerk also could have served a dual role as grocer, etc.

The Beau Sabreur on the third one bears a likeness to German immigrant General Louis (Ludwig) Blenker, a brigade commander under Fremont in Spring, 1862
