Descripción:

James Garfield's vice president (March-September 1881) became the twenty-first president of the United States (1881-85) upon his assassination; a New York attorney and politician, he had served as the influential Collector of the Port of New York (1871-78) and as chairman of the New York State Republican Executive Committee (1879-81). Partial ALS, 1p, 5" X 5½", n.p., n.y. Addressed to Dr. A.O. Vanderpool. Very good. Faint age toning and folds, with top edge roughly trimmed; minor mounting traces on verso. Interesting if cryptic note on lined stock, possibly (but not with certainty) penned while president: "by Mr John Barker, of Morton Bliss & Co, who is desirous of boarding the 'Scotia' from off your boat, for the purpose of meeting Mr. L.P. Morton who is expected on her. If you can conveniently extend to him this privilege I shall be personally obliged." Morton (1824-1920), New York representative and senator and vice president under Benjamin Harrison (1889-93), served as U.S. Ambassador to France from 1881 to 1885 -- the years of Arthur's presidency -- and thus likely returning occasionally to New York by steamer, during which time Arthur may have helped arrange this meeting at sea. (Morton founded a banking company that made loans to the Union during the Civil War and was reorganized as Morton Bliss & Co. in 1869.) Accompanied by a superb 4½" X 6½" contemporary steel-engraved head-and-shoulders portrait of Arthur. Though a partial document, attractive and interesting. N° de ref. de la librería

Descripción 1846. No Binding. Estado de conservación: Very Good. Sir Edward Sabine (1788-1883) was a prominent and well regarded scientist in a number of fields, including astronomy, geophysics, ornithology, and botany -- though his primary area of study and research was the Earth's magnetic field. This partial autograph letter signed from 1846 is addressed to Sabine's colleague, George Washington Keely -- a professor at Waterville College (now Colby) in Maine. Keely left the college in 1852 to work on the U.S. Coast Survey. The last page of the letter, which is unfortunately all that is available here, begins "bringing with him an apparently beautiful series of determinations of the 3 elements - from Southampton Sd. to Moore Fort. the dip decreases & the force increases as I expected it could. His determination at Moore, by instruments taken from hence & brought back, almost exactly tallies with the map." The letter's last paragraph is "Looking forward to the completion of the survey of the American Continent, we have no observor in the field from Maine, this New Brunswick to Halifax; may we but hope that you will supply this important [illegible]?" Sabine closes "Sincerely yours," and signs his full name underneath. Docketing on the verso/integral address panel notes that the letter is dated October 17, 1846, and that it enclosed "bills of Jones and Barrow" -- Thomas Jones and Henry Barrow, both of London, were then leading producers/purveyors of dip circles and other instruments used in Sabine and Keely's fields of scientific research. Written on a single page of Sabine's blue writing paper measuring approximately 8 3/4" x 7", which was folded to create an integral address panel on the verso. Condition: There is some light soil on the address panel, and pin-sized holes at four of the intersections of the fold lines. There is a short tear and minimal paper loss at the red wax seal. In very good condition overall, with the area around the signature particularly clean and bold. Signed by Author(s). Nº de ref. de la librería A00528

Descripción [Possibly St. Louis. Between 1805-1807]., 1807. 3pp. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old folds. Closed tear to second leaf, minutely affecting text. A few pieces of old tape, primarily in margin. Light wear and soiling. About good. In a blue half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. Latter part of a letter written by General James Wilkinson to James Brown, U.S. Attorney General of New Orleans, Wilson (1757-1825) was a general in the American Revolution; he subsequently served in Wayne's Ohio campaign against the Indians, and was successively governor at Detroit, St. Louis, and New Orleans. He was embroiled in Aaron Burr's western schemes, and ultimately became a Texas landowner. James Brown was appointed by President Jefferson as the Secretary of Orleans Territory in 1804, and later accepted an appointment as the U.S. Attorney for the District of New Orleans, from 1805-1808. He later served as a U.S. Senator from Louisiana and as Ambassador to France. Though the first half of this letter is lacking, it would seem to have been written while Wilkinson was Governor of Louisiana Territory, stationed at St. Louis (1805-1807); it is addressed as private mail to Brown as Attorney & Advocate General at New Orleans (1805-1808). The opening line of Wilkinson's letter refers to the squabbles within the Army ranks about the order for short hair. Officers were expected to cut off their queue, or pigtails, in compliance with new Army regulations; this, however, caused a split in the ranks, and many of the old guard - who were primarily Federalists - resigned rather than submit to a trim. Lt. Col. Thomas Butler was, in fact, twice court martialed for refusing to comply. "These are both good officers, & the first is a [fringed?] cat, tho very fond of his hair, yet I doubt not the correctness of their judgment, or the soundness of their principles. I find [Stuart?] resigns & wishes to visit the seat of government; I expect in character of ambassador from Butler & Claiborne, to promote their [illegible] purposes & plat the devil with the Brigadier General; I should be glad to be informed of the standing of this charming trio. My poor Ann is with me accompanied by my son James, who remembers you with respectful attachment. My son Biddle is at Williams Burgh for a year to read law & hear the lectures, after which he will go into the office of Willm. Pinckney of Maryland, the great young man of our country." He goes on to wish Brown well, including what appears to be a reference to resisting the temptations of the colored ladies of New Orleans, followed by a slantwise reference to a new phase of his life. "I hope you have been able to realize all your hopes & expectations in the capital of the West [i.e., New Orleans], and that you may live long to enjoy the wealth you are accumulating. I hope also that your mercurial temperament does not expose or rather subject you to the sinful allurements which encompass you in all the various tints & shades of the human kind, from ebony to alabaster. I hope too that you are well with my friend Livingston, because of his charming disposition & generous soul. I am about to enter upon a new theatre & in a part which I have never before played. The result therefore can but be dubious, yet I despair not of avoiding the filth & dirt, with which my worthy brother near you has besmeared himself. The views of the Executive on my government differ entirely from those applied to every other colony, but I really have not time to say more than that depopulation constitutes a prime object." An interesting letter by this controversial American figure. Nº de ref. de la librería WRCAM 42927
