Dear wedjones:
Read your latest and glad that the information posted on this thead helped in your research. You mentioned mounting the ROBT. E. LEE. 'sudries' receipt at home with your print. Great idea to add interest. I would strongly suggest, as you probably already know, to have it done professionally on acid-free mounting paper and mat. I'd suggest an 'archival' glass and this can be done/obtained from generally any reputable framing store dealing in such trade. Here near me we have THE FRAME SHOPPE, individually owned, and they are capable of such archival mounting of prints, paintings, documents and even old fabrics such as Chinese or Japanese silks etc. Thing is to keep it away from light or nearby window from those bad UVs. I'd also inquire about 'stabilizing' the sundries receipt from further darkening or deterioration. Good luck and keep us posted.

Cheers,
R. Dale Flick
