e.v. for en ville ?

Hi everyone.

A recent discovery was this inscription on a posh envelope.

e.v. I gather it means "en ville" and is the French for "outside".

Can anyone explain to me, why they put this sort of thing on an envelope, if the letter really gets OUTSIDE?


Do you know any other envelope abbreviations, like P.M., R.S.V.P, etc?
