Choice full free frank, measuring 5 x 3.5 folded, addressed by Jefferson to “David Gelston esq., New York,” and crisply franked in the lower left, “free, Th: Jefferson.” Docketing notations on reverse date the signature to August 15, 1816. In very good to fine condition, with a light stain, light toning along folds, and a small repaired tear above the addressee's name. A New York merchant and politician who signed the articles of association in 1774, Gelston served as a member of the New York State Senate on two separate occasions. He was appointed by President Jefferson as Collector of the Port of New York in 1801, and held that post until his retirement in 1821.
