This original California Gold Rush Period Advertising Card measures 3.25" x 5.75" and was printed by Nesbitt & Co, NY in green, gold, and blue on thick white coated card stock. The text of this card reads:

"SURE DISPATCH. -- Sutton & Co.'s Dispatch Line -- FOR SAN FRANCISCO. -- SAILING PROMPTLY AS ADVERTISED. -- 113, 119 & 118 DAYS' PASSAGE - And just returned from San Francisco in 94 days.

Shippers will please examine her. SUTTON & CO, cor. of Wall & South Sts. Messrs. GEORGE HOWES & CO., Consignees in San Francisco. -- SURE DISPATCH."

It is well documented that the Clipper Ship "Great Admiral" was launched in 1869, thus dating this card. Top right corner tip is clipped off, not affecting any of the text lettering.
