Palimpsest Asemic Correspondence by Cecil Touchon
11x8.5 inches, ink drawing on antique paper, two gold colored embossed metal seals commemorating 50 year anniversary of electricity: one with an image of Edison with the writing: "Light's Golden Jubilee - Thomas A. Edison". The other with two light bulb images with the writing: "Dedicated to Better Vision"

Originally a business correspondence from Texas Electric in the 1920's, the paper has interesting geometric discoloration from exposure to light from other papers on top.
