Abraham Lincoln Invitation

An Abraham Lincoln invitation to the President’s House only seems to come to auction about once per year and that makes it rare.  We at NateDSanders.com had one a few years back, and here is the description, picture and price realized:

1863 Abraham Lincoln Invitation to Copperhead Congressman and Mayor of Brooklyn Martin Kalbfleisch

Abraham Lincoln invitation to his home to meet with Russian fleet officers as they show their support for Union troops. Invitation reads in full, “The President and Mrs. Lincoln At Home, On Saturday, December 19th [1863] From One to Three P.M..” Accompanied by original transmittal envelope to political adversary Martin Kalbfleisch. Kalbfleisch’s dual-role as Brooklyn’s mayor and New York Congressman may have been an important factor for the invitation as Brooklyn was the home of one of the most important naval bases in the country, the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Kalbfleisch was also a supporter of McClellan’s run for President and delivered public speeches denouncing the Emancipation Proclamation. Invitation and envelope measure 5.25″ x 2.5″. Overall near fine condition.  Sold for $3,896.
