Good morming, This letter was posted from Robert Morron inShawneetown Il to John Marron in Washington City D.C. I can't make out much of the content as it's hard for me to read. If you flip the cover over you can see where someone has written -Answered the library #47-I think.
I think John Marron was possibly the 3rd Postmaster General at this time.Thanks
David
