Comments:
There is no woven credit on this bookmark.
However, as can be seen, it is still attached to the stiff backing paper with the printed GRANT credit.
The verse and image of shamrock too, are identical to that of Grant's postcard, gc344, titled Greetings from Ireland;
and the hand clasp and ship are identical to Grant's Hands Across the Sea postcard, gc392.
