The presently offered specimen exhibits light to moderate toning across the entire surface, imparting an off-white to light beige hue to the paper. The toning is slightly darker at the edges and along the one vertical fold.
This fold has caused the paper to weaken near the top, though no tears are present at this time. The contrast is average, with all printed and manuscript material legible. Ink bleed through from the manuscript D can be seen at the upper center, and Randolphs signature can be seen when the note is viewed from the back. Measuring approximately 4.85 x 7.60 inches, this piece would look nice if framed with a period illustration of workers in a cotton field.
