Sweet, Orr & Co. Receipt Envelope

Nice little Sweet, Orr & Co., receipt envelope from Willner Bros., in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. No date on the piece, but I'd say from around the late 1890's from the pricing of the Special Yellow Ticket $1.50 Trousers. I've seen similar pricing in ads from 1895. I really like the company's marketing slogan of "Look For The Name On The Buttons."
