A blog for the Bloomingdale neighborhood in Washington, DC.
what looks odd is that the signature does not appear to match the name at the bottom of the letter of John Ihlder of the Alley Dwelling Authority. The signature looks like Susan Sharp Stokes or something. Anyone else see this?
I believe that the signature is of Anson Phelps Stokes... the name on the letterhead at the top of the document. I think that Mr. Ihlder is the recipient of the letter.
I predicted at least * some * interest in this piece of history. Guess not!
Hey. People read the documents and talked about signatures. That's history.
