This stamp cover is an unsolicited donation sent by Mrs. Mortensen. She corresponded with Water Tender third class Axlthem [?] while he was onboard Intrepid. The stamp cover dates from January 5, 1946 when Intrepid was in San Francisco. It does not contain a letter, but there is a lot of personalization on the cover.
