Collector of Internal Revenue Seventh District of Indiana

APR  22  1899
D. W. Henry
Collector Int. Rev. Seventh Dist. of Indiana

Bart Rosenberg scan

D. W. Henry became a Judge and a community leader in Terre Haute, Indiana.

As today is the day your US Federal Income Taxes are due, it seemed appropriate to use this scan of a block of 4 sent by reader Bart Rosenberg.  In the normal course of Mr. Henry's professional duties as Collector of Interneral Revenue, you would think that he would have been exempt from taxes.  Perhaps this block was cancelled and used for a personal transaction.  Unfortunately, we can't know unless we can find an on document example from Mr. Henry that contains a similar block and cancel.
