Hand-drawn envelopes; works of art that probably wouldn’t be delivered today


Milwaukee

While in Milwaukee, Wisconsin working for Captain Irving Bean, of Civil War fame. The house on Prospect Avenue is now an historical site.

When this letter was sent it appears Ernest was working for Captain I. M. Bean in Milwaukee. Bean was an important player in the development of Milwaukee and was its provost marshal during the Civil War.
