by Godden:
Mrs Cleveland (née Frances Folsom) married President Cleveland in 1886. Her husband was President of the United States of America from 1885 to 1889 and again from 1893 to March 1897 (see so200 on this site). Both the President and the First Lady were extremely popular.

The Stevens silk portrait of MRS. CLEVELAND. QUEEN OF 60 MILLIONS OF FREE PEOPLE is an attractive one, showing the President's wife turning to the left. The title first appeared on label 23+26+2 of 1887 and was included up to label 31+32 of 1900 - that is, for a longer period than her husband's portrait.
