Description Total of 33 pieces of company letterhead from the "Thacher Medicine Company." The letterhead is very simple. The top center reads "Thacher Medicine Company, Manufacturers of Thacher's Household Remedies, Chattanooga Tennessee."
At the very top right corner of each sheet of paper in letters that measure one millimeter tall, is printed," Purse Prte Co Chattanooga, Tenn."
When the paper is held up to the light a watermark reading " Old Deerfield Bond, Made in U.S.A. can be seen.
Since this letterhead reads Thacher Medicine Company, rather Than Thacher Laboratories Incorporated, we can assume that this was printed after 1897 when the company was incorporated under that name, and before 1924 when the company was purchased and renamed.
