written by, I think, T. Bailly-Blanchard Jr. to his father in france, just a few days before his son, Arthur Bailly-Blanchard (October 1, 1855 - August 25, 1925) sometimes written Arthur Bailey-Blanchard was an American diplomat. He was the American ambassador to Haiti from 1914 to 1921, was born. letter is in french, hope someone with knowledge of French can find a part stating the baby is due?
a pen 8 on front for postage due in France.
i have a question, 6X3=18 paid...but as far as I can find the fee was higher? how is this possible? or no inland charge because of originating in New Orleans?
