Full Washington free frank addressed to a fellow Virginian patriot
Description                           Estimate: $6,000+          

Full hand-addressed free frank, 7 x 5.75, with franked panel measuring 4.5 x 3. Addressed in Washington’s hand to “John Page Esq'r, Gloucester County, Virginia,” and franked in the lower left, “Free Go: Washington.” Docketed above in another hand, "W. City March 10, Free." Lower panel retains it original red wax seal. Matted and framed with a large portrait of Washington to an overall size of 31 x 24. In very good to fine condition, with light soiling and slight blurring to the signature. Page was a Virginian congressman who served as the state's 13th governor from 1802 to 1805, a position formerly held by James Monroe. A close friend and colleague of Thomas Jefferson at the College of William and Mary, Page also served under George Washington during the French and Indian War, and was then later elected as a delegate to the state constitutional convention in 1776. An attractive, boldly signed free frank from the nation's first president.
