MARY LORD HARRISON
Mary Lord Harrison addresses and franks an envelope.
Free frank signed "Mary Lord Harrison" in upper right, 5½x3½. Addressed by her to "Mrs. A.T. Volwiler/47 Maplewood Drive/Athens/Ohio", postmarked New York, May 3, 1934. Printed on back flap: "Mrs. Benjamin Harrison/1160 Fifth Avenue/New York City". Sisters Elizabeth and Caroline Scott married Russell Lord and Benjamin Harrison, respectively. In 1881, Elizabeth's daughter, Mary Scott Lord, married lawyer Walter E. Dimmick. He died three months later and Mary went to live with her mother. When her mother died, her Aunt Caroline invited her to live in the White House. Mary assisted her aunt in her social affairs and served as her secretary. In the summer of 1892, First Lady Caroline Scott Harrison was taken ill. She died on October 25, 1892 at the age of 60. On April 6, 1896, in New York City, 37-year-old Mary Scott Lord Dimmick married her uncle, 62-year-old Benjamin Harrison. Conspicuously absent from the wedding were the ex-President's two children who were older than the bride. Benjamin Harrison died in 1901. On February 1, 1909, Mary Lord Harrison was granted free use of the mails. On May 24, 1938, she was awarded a $5,000 annual government pension. Mary died in 1948 at the age of 89, surviving her husband by 46 years and both of her stepchildren. Postal markings just touch lower letters of signature. Tip of lower left corner creased.
