Mourning items fro Abraham Lincoln

This envelope reads: “Different kinds of cloth used in the drapery of the House of Representatives in honor of A. Lincoln April 20th, 1865”. Suffice it to say these cloth fragments may have hung as part of a larger display when the Lincoln funeral train stopped in Harrisburg.
