    Fr. 226a $1 1899 Silver Certificate Uncut Sheet Extremely Fine. A bright, colorful, uncut sheet of Black Eagles. Fr. 226a is the most "common" uncut sheet of Large Size Type Notes, with a dozen sheets now known. This sheet was mailed in Washington D.C. in 1904 by a Mr. Amos Luke to his daughter, Cora M. Luke. The letter, and presumably the sheet (which is folded between subjects) was sent in a U.S. Senate envelope, although Amos Luke was never a U.S. Senator. The relevant passage in the letter: "I also send herewith several souvenirs of money that I have had for a long time and fear I may lose them. They are scarce, and you will do well to keep them[,] then you will always have money. The four dollars are just as they come from the printing office, and they cannot be had any more in this form. . . Keep it and if you get hard run for money clip off a dollar and spend it." Mr. Luke had just returned to Washington from a trip to New England, and the remainder of the letter waxes poetic about New England in the early fall. The sheet itself is beautifully bright, with a fold between each note and two vertical folds down the sheet.
