Col. Patrick H. Drake and Demas Barnes formed a partnership sometime around 1862 to manufacture and market Drake's Plantation Bitters. Their partnership ended in 1867, and Plantation Bitters was sold thereafter by P. H. Drake & Co. The digestive aid -- made with 38% alcohol -- was sold in a distinctive log cabin-shaped bottle. This bottle design was patented in 1862, and Plantation Bitters was one of more than 40 cabin-shaped bitters bottles produced by various makers.

The Ford collection contained two, so the example offered here is the fifth known to specialists. The 2007 Mayer description also noted they were aware of five pieces.

2462   ImageGage Bros. & Drake, Tremont House, Chicago, 10c Green (EP91). Stamp with rich color, few trivial mica imperfections but overall fresh and Very Fine, -- In 1853 the Gage brothers -- David A. and George W. -- took control of the Tremont House, one of Chicago's most famous hotels. Two years later they sold a quarter-interest in the hotel to John B. Drake and named the new partnership "Gage, Brother & Drake" (as it appears on the encased postage). The Tremont House was frequently visited by Abraham Lincoln before he was elected President, and the hotel became Lincoln's campaign headquarters during the Republican convention in 1860. In 1863 David Gage withdrew from the Tremont House partnership and became a partner in the Sherman House, a rival hotel opened in 1861, with 1988 P.F. certificate (Image)
