Ha - I was in Great Barrington, Mass one summer and stayed close to the "church nearby the restaurant" (which was actually in Housatonic not Stockbridge)

Queen Elizabeth visits RPSL

It was impressive to see that Queen Elizabeth visited the RPSL on their 150th anniversary to open their new facility. Quite a coup, for philately. The Royal Family posted about it on their Facebook page as well, here

D & W

That correspondence is extensive. Most of what is on the market comprises only the outer sheets (i.e., no text). I have not gone through the Pennsylvania Historical Society’s holdings, but based on other work I have done with them they are likely to have only contents. A large proportion of the 18th Century material they consigned to Siegel Auctions comprised only the outer sheets. They retained the contents, and will provide scans for a small fee.
