The Republic of Cuba (4)

Envelope
Vol. II, p.36: Havana to Trenton, NJ. 31 March, 1906.

A rather pretty envelope showing the advertising corner card of the Hotel Florida in Havana. Franked with a 2 centavos stamp depicting Royal Palms, which first appeared in September 1899, during the North American Administration.

By special arrangement with the United States Post Office Department, the postage rate between Cuba and the United States was reduced from 5 centavos (cents) to 2 centavos (cents).

This letter was posted at Havana on March 31, 1906, and received at Trenton, N.J. on April 6.
