BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS 1847 STAMPLESS FOLDED LETTER TO NEW YORK CITY - POSTAL-HISTORY BOSTON MASSACHUSETTS 1847 STAMPLESS FOLDED LETTER TO NEW YORK CITY

August 2, 1847 stampless folded letter from Allen & Beal, Boston furniture sellers, to George Johnson in New York, pleading with him to fill a furniture order they had sent to him some time back.  Apparently Johnson has ignored numerous requests to fill the order. Below is information from the 1849 edition of “The Stranger’s Guide to the City of Boston”.

ALLEN & BEAL,

NOS. 1, 2, 3 & 4 HOLMES'S BLOCK, HAYMARET SQUARE.

This house has been in existence for several years, and now enjoys an enviable prosperity. Allen & Beal are distinguished for the extent, variety and excellence of their stock. They are second to no furniture dealers in the city, in these or other particulars. A glance at their vast and rich assortment of furniture, feathers, mattresses, and looking-glasses, will impress the beholder with admiration. They are adapted particularly for the wholesale trade, as well as for shipping, hotel and family use. They have a remarkably large assortment of looking-glasses. Messrs. A. & B. keep constantly on hand and import hair-seating, curled hair, looking-glass plates, webbing, sofa springs, plushes, and cabinet-makers' trimmings, of all varieties ; and a very large stock of sofas, looking-glasses, and rocking and mahogany chairs ; and the fact that their stock is so very ample, affords them better facilities for selling at moderate prices. Their rooms, in Holmes's Block, are very fine and spacious. Here also may be found an extensive assortment of Upholstery goods. We recommend purchasers to call upon Allen & Beal. They are large, honorable and enterprising traders, and their terms are moderate.
