More About this Item


Description: TLS signed "Wm. A. Wiley, A. Ticket Agent," one page, 8 x 10.25, The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company letterhead, March 11, 1912. Letter to a perspective traveler. In part: "I take great pleasure in handing you herewith for your information a detailed list of the various Steamship Lines and rates in effect over same to Plymouth England...I wish to say that any consideration that you may give our 'line' will be greatly appreciated." Two additional pages provide rates for travel on various lines, including "White Star Line-Steamer 'Olympic' or 'Titanic' all rooms $65:00." Third page has several handwritten notations including "5 to 12 half-under 5 free on rail-between ages of 1 and 12 half fare on Steamer." In very good condition, with partial separations along horizontal mailing folds, uniform toning, and a couple of rusty staple holes. An interesting letter presenting the little known fact that children up to the age of 12 sailed for half price.
