Full hand-addressed free frank, measuring 9.75 x 7.75 unfolded, with panel measuring 5.75 x 3.25, addressed by Harrison to “Mr. Andrew N. Baily, Cincinnati, Ohio,” and franked in the upper right, “Free, W. H. Harrison.” Scattered creases, light soiling, and two vertical folds (one passing through a single letter of the signature), otherwise fine condition. Harrison served as one of Ohio’s senators from March 4, 1825, to May 20, 1828, during which time he had franking privileges, and this variation of Harrison’s signature was used during this period. The cover was presumably sent while he was in Washington; had he been at home in Ohio, he would have omitted the state name from the address as was customary with intrastate mail. The recipient, whose name is variously spelled in congressional records as Andrew N. Bailey and Andrew M. Bailey, had been appointed as Receiver of Public Moneys for the District of Cincinnati by John Quincy Adams in 1825, later removed from the position by Andrew Jackson in 1829. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
