A receipt, rather than a cheque.

I am struck by the font on the Western National Bank [of Philadelphia] check.
I would not have picked 1875 for its year of origin.

In my mailbox today was a letter from the White House telling me all about my stimulus check. It arrived two weeks after I got the check but I think the govt. invented the saying "better late than never".

Ikey-Pikey--When I talked about Trumps' signature on the check in my post of 5/2, I was thinking of people salvaging the cancelled ones from the trash. In any case, I doubt any in Washington care about saving money anymore.

I don't know if the Feds read my 5/2 post but it's like they heard me. The letter I received today had not one but two Trump signatures on it.Whatever they're using for auto pen these days looks like it was done with a felt pen.

Arrived today a 2.5/7.5/2.5 combination from the Netherlands 1942 on postcard.

Almost all are considered Philatelistic.

They are not that easy to find and as long as the postage is correct I am fine

Yesterday's mail brought the Postmaster Commission document shown below. Issued to William Kilby, appointing him the postmaster at Denneysville, Maine. It is dated February 24, 1800. This is the second oldest such document I have been able to add to my collection.

The Postmaster General at the time was Joseph Habersham, who served in this position between 1795 and 1801



William Kilby was the first postmaster appointed at the Denneysville post office, which was established on January 31, 1800, as shown by the following entry from the Letter Books of the Postmaster General, vol E, page 457.



Denneysville is in Washington County, on the easternmost point of Maine. I've not been able to determine how long William Kilby served as postmaster, but he died in 1829.
