Description
1899 (May). Occupation mail at time of Spanish administration, undated envelope with manuscript “USS Yosemite / Guam / Ladrones” and “1st letter”, written by John M Hubbard, clearly a very early item of mail after the arrival of the American Navy in the Marianas on August 7th, roughly opened at right; an exceptional historical cover and superb opening item for an exhibit collection of this area.
