The Minnesota Territory cover is interesting. The correspondence is signed by the last auditor of the territory. Found his name on this wiki link:

To me these are excellent items, I love covers with their contents they tell so much more then just the cover alone.
Well done!!

Cheers, Bill

Yes, It is OK to erase pencil scribbles from previous owners - BUT you need to be absolutely sure that they are pencil scribbles from previous owners and not contemporaneous docketing or markings. I once heard a story of a collector that erased a pencil civil war prison censor marking thinking that it was a collectors note, destroying a valuable cover. For that reason, it is better just to leave it be.
