I originally thought this was 1882 until I actually paid attention and saw that it clearly says Taxes for the year 1888.  I’m not entirely sure if the year is 1888 or 1889 or if that scribble is something else entirely!

I am unsure of whether the International Committee is of the Young Christian Men’s Association, the Red Cross, or what.  I haven’t been able to find out anything definitive.
