1892 Orr, Jr. Mfg. Co., Invoice and Envelope

1892 invoice and envelope from Orr, Jr. Manufacturing Company in Port Jervis, New York. I recently picked this piece up from Ozark Dry Goods. In their description, they had this as being a little known division of Sweet, Orr & Company. This might or might not be the case. There is basically no information out there for Orr, Jr. Manufacturing Company. I reached out to Jim Christensen of Your Old Pal, Jim. Jim is the guy for Sweet, Orr history. He thought this piece was a mystery because biographical sketches on James Orr doesn't mention any sons. He thinks James A. Orr Jr. might have been a nephew. Sweet, Orr did have a factory in Port Jervis, New York. Maybe this was part of that factory. If anyone has any information regarding this, please drop me a line.
