Check out past Presidential Inaugural Covers over at KenmoreStamp.com. There are also the Inaugural covers at PostalHistoryStore.com. There are several others I came across, but for today sharing those two sites.
The stamp was issued in 1939. It commemorated “the 150th anniversary of George Washington’s inauguration as the first President of the United States.”
“Washington was inaugurated on April 30, 1789, on the balcony of the Senate Chamber at Federal Hall on Wall Street. Robert Livingston, the Chancellor of New York, administered the oath of office. New York City would serve as the nation’s capital for a year, before moving to Philadelphia.”
This week has found several printable classroom activities encouraging letter writing at MakeBeliefsComix.com. Love the creativity of Bill Zimmerman with his Educational Printables Section. These free printables encourage writing sentiments and each includes an address printed on them to fold and mail. Each of these images shown below can be clicked on and will link to then Print Page.

It was interesting to read over at Wikipedia that “George Washington’s second address was the shortest (135 words), and William Henry Harrison delivered the longest (8,495 words).” Join me tomorrow for my Saturday blog post here at AnchoredScraps.com.
