Samuel Raynor and Co, is the New York firm from the 1800s that seems to be responsible for the numbering of different envelope sizes.  At that time, envelope sizes had not yet been standardized among manufacturers. So if you ordered a #9 envelope from Samuel Raynor you’d get one that measured 4 x 8 ¾”. That would not necessarily be the size you got if you ordered some #9s from a different company.
