russia-1961-taras-shevchenko-cachet-first-day-cover RUSSIA -- 1961 TARAS SHEVCHENKO CACHET FIRST DAY COVER

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.

CHARLESTON SOUTH CAROLINA 1800S COVER AND LETTER- RELIGIOUS CONTENT- TWO 1-CT BANKNOTES FANCY CANCEL

Cover roughly opened. However, nice pair of Franklin banknotes with fancy target postmarks are undamaged. Although letter is postmarked Charleston, it was written in Savannah. Letter is from Anna Young to Mrs. Guardeau thanking her for presiding in her place at a prayer meeting. "...you are so competent in the business line and still more in prayer for GOD's presence with us and blessings upon us. My absence from the board is a trial, but it is also a Providence and I cling to the holy Cowper's definition of this word which has been a special help to me.." "Providence is but the name of an effect whose case is "GOD". Interesting reading.
