Rhode Island Tercentenary Issue First Day Cover
300th Anniversary of the Settlement of Rhode Island
Issued on May 4, 1936 in Providence, RI - Scott #777

Unknown Cachet Maker - Rubber Stamp Cachet - Planty #130

Volume IX - Planty Encyclopedia - 776, 777 & 778 shows this cover addressed to the same Robert D. Whitford. The cancellation is in a slightly different position so they are different covers. It would seem that Robert is the most likely candidate for cachet maker.
(Especially since his address and the cachet both represent Newport, RI)
