    Description

    William Randolph Hearst: Anti-Hearst Postcard with Bonus. Postally-used card titled "Lest We Forget", accusing Hearst of publishing a statement on February 4, 1901 that seemed to encourage the assassination of McKinley. Postmarked from New York City on November 3, 1905, so likely issued to derail Heart's unsuccessful campaign for mayor. Horizontal crease with loss at bottom. Sold together with a 3 3/8" x 6 1/4" two-sided coated stock card showing a Democratic workingman with anti-McKinley, anti-Full Dinner Pail text on both sides. Issued by the Young Men's Democratic Club of Boston.
    From the collection of Ed Sullivan.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
