Clean, unaddressed cover showing Shevchenko memorial statue. Taras Shevchenko was a Ukrainian poet, writer, artist, public and political figure. His literary heritage is regarded to be the foundation of modern Ukrainian literature and, to a large extent, the modern Ukrainian language. Shevchenko is also known for many masterpieces as a painter and an illustrator. In 1847, he was politically convicted for writing in the Ukrainian language, promoting the independence of Ukraine and ridiculing the members of the Russian Imperial House.

RUTLAND VERMONT 1849 STAMPLESS FOLDED LEGAL LETTER TO WEST POULTNEY VERMONT

Lengthy and very interesting lawyer letter containing transcripts of four court events involving William P. Noyes, of Rutland and his claim against the estate of John Shumway, late of South Poultney. James Wenchel, South Poultney administrator, "ought not to have or maintain in such capacity his aforesaid action thereof against him because he says that the said William P. Noyes was not guilty of the several supposed trespasses and convessions (sic) in the said declaration mentioned".  Apparently Noyes appropriated some land that was part of the Shumway estate. The letter is addressed to J. B. Beamon, who is the attorney for Wenchel. Other names mentioned include: G. Hanes, Ralph Taylor and Edgerton. Missive is dated April 4, 1849. Excellent historical item.
