Sir,

I have been requested by Mr. Jno. C. Boyd, a highly respectable citizen of North county, to write you in behalf of Dr. Chas. D.

I have not the pleasure of a personal acquaintance with Mr. Moswell, but from the character of his connections in the State, and the representations of Mr. Boyd, I feel confident that the appointment would be a good one, and I should be much gratified if he could succeed.

                                                                                                                                                Very respectfully,

Sending a 6th N.Y. Infantry Corporal to Union General Nathaniel Banks for the Port Hudson Campaign

Autograph Letter Signed, 8” x 10”. From the Union encampment in New Orleans, Dow recommends 6th New York Corporal Charles E. Berger for return to his unit, under the command of General Nathaniel Banks, a month before Banks’ failed assault and subsequent siege to capture Port Hudson, Louisiana, the Confederate stronghold on the Mississippi River. Berger survived the campaign and was mustered out in New York City on June 25, 1863.  Dow’s letter is accompanied by a clerically handwritten special order, imprinted “Department of the Gulf, HEAD QUARTERS, DISTRICT OF PENSACOLA,” February 3, 1863, relieving Private Berger from duty in Pensacola and directing his passage to New Orleans.


“Head Quarters, U.S. Forces at Carrolton, April 7, 1863. The bearer of this, Chas. E. Berger, of the 6th N.Y. Vol[unteer]s, has been a clerk in the office of the Reg[iment] A[ssistant] A[djutant] General nearly five months, and has shown himself to be very competent to the duties of the position. He leaves me now by order of Gen. Banks to join his Regiment, whose term of service is nearly expired. I commend him to the kind regards of all with whom he may come in contact. Neal Dow, Brig[adier] Gen[eral] Commanding.”


Both letters have light toning, soiling, and wear, with minor paper loss at the edges of the expected horizontal folds, portions of which have been reinforced with archival tape on the reverse.

NewHILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, FLORIDA – LAND CONVEYANCE INVOLVING TWO 19th CENTURY PIONEERS OF TAMPA

# 7838

(3) Documents, the largest 8 ½ x 9”, two others 7 ¾” x 7 ¾”, partly printed forms, Tampa, Florida, imprinted “REDEMPTION CERTIFICATE, STATE OF FLORIDA, Hillsborough County.” Concerning land in Tampa, Florida that was sold for non-payment of taxes, and signed SECRETARIALLY for Circuit Court Clerk Henry L. Mitchell, former governor of Florida, two documents are dated December 27, 1900, and convey “…Lot 8 Mugges sub…of Mitchells sub” to “J. Henry Krause.” Dated November 11, 1898, the largest of the three conveys “Lot 10, Blk. 17, Highland Park” to the same individual.


Born in Germany, John Henry Krause settled in Tampa in 1855, worked as a blacksmith and wagon manufacturer, and served in the 7th Florida Infantry, Confederate, during the Civil War. He was involved in numerous business ventures afterward, most notably as a partner in the Hava-Tampa Cigar Company.

The family of Henry Laurens Mitchell moved from near Birmingham, Alabama to Tampa, Florida when young Mitchell was fifteen years old. He studied law, and was admitted to the bar at the age of eighteen. He enlisted in the Confederate Army at Tampa on June 6, 1861 as first lieutenant, rising to the rank of captain in the 4th Florida Infantry before resigning to take his elected seat in the Florida House of Representatives in 1863. He was re-elected in 1873 and 1875, served as associate justice in the Florida Supreme Court, 1888-91, Florida governor, 1893-97, and circuit court clerk and treasurer for Hillsborough County until his death in 1903.


Worthy of further research as to the disposition of the land, the documents exhibit the expected horizontal folds, along with several minor stains and small edge nicks and tears. As illustrated, one of the smaller documents has paper loss in the left margin, not affecting the text of the document.

I am glad to accept on condition that the place is purely honorary, for as you know I am too busy with the work of the Department to give any real attention to other matters such as I would like to. Cordially yours, Franklin K. Lane.

The letter is lightly and evenly toned, with two horizontal folds and several light stains and creases. There is an old paper clip indentation in the upper right corner.

NewMEAD, SAMUEL H. Father of World-Renowned Naturalist, Entomologist & Horticulturist Theodore Luqueer Mead

# 7842

On his first research trip to Florida, Theodore Luqueer Mead receives a letter from his father.

“Insect Pins (large) – I regret to report that after taking out each drawer in the Secretary & looking in all accessible segar Boxes I find Nary.”

Autograph Letter Signed, 5” x 8”, March 15, 1869, four pages on a folded letter-sheet, at the time of his sons’ first research trip to the Florida interior. Signed “Pop” at the conclusion, a full signature is incorporated both within the text of the letter and on the transmittal envelope, addressed to “Sam[ue]l H. Mead, Jr. or T.L. Mead, Enterprise, Florida,” and bearing a March 15, New York postmark.

Addressing his young sons in an amusing, colloquial manner, the senior Mead discusses travel to the heat and humidity of central Florida, “…I gather from your acc[oun]t that the Storms were simply disgusted with the inferior accommodations & barbarism generally of the South…”; the prevailing prices of Manhattan real estate, “…No. 45 Pearl St. which we sold 2 years ago at $25,200 sold at auction last week at $24,000, not much rise there…”; and the arrival of a new bicycle, “…The Velocipede has been sent home Bill $5.” Further detailed is his effort to send equipment for his sons’ scientific research, “Insect Pins (large) – I regret to report that after taking out each drawer in the Secretary & looking in all accessible segar [sic] Boxes I find Nary.”


In full:

                                           New York, Mar[ch] 15/[18]69.

                             Dear Ones,

This Monday morning, I received lots of letters from you. One from 8 am Mar[ch] 7 up to Mar. 11 when you were to start for Enterprise. One from Momma & Sam Mar. 11 containing account of the separation of the party you leaving John & sister with Mr. & Mrs. Jenkins. I gather from your acc[oun]t that the Storms were simply disgusted with the inferior accommodations & barbarism generally of the South & were consequently in a bad humor with the universe at large. Also, one letter from Theo dated Enterprise Mar. 7, requesting large insect pins & detailing excursions.

Your telegram reached me Mar. 11 in accordance with which I enclosed $400 in 20s & 50s greenbacks and sent by Southern Express to Theodore L. Mead or Sam[ue]l H. Mead, Jr., Enterprise, Florida.

[Page 2]

It will take a week you reach you. I immediately telegraphed to you at Savannah this fact but received a return message from the manager that you had left Savannah & asking direction. I replied (free of cost) to send the telegram to you at Enterprise by mail. This was very attentive on his part & quite unexpected by me. I supposed they did not care whether any given message was delivered or not.

I infer that you have had no opportunity to make your checks available. If you draw checks let me know, in order that I may be sure that there is money enough to your credit to meet them. You still have the $500 in Bank to your credit if you have not drawn against it. Mrs. Wendel has called & mentioned she & a party were going to Fortress Monroe. She would write you

[Page 3]

frequently I infer if she thought the letters would reach you.

H.M. Colton called in a great pinch for money, wanted $300 bad. He was really kind to Sam when a youngster & so I lent him $100 for 3 weeks. I guess he will pay me. Uncle Obadiah writes me that he would like to sell his farm for $25,000 which is a stunner. I don’t see it at much over half that.

No. 45 Pearl St. which we sold 2 years ago at $25,200 sold at auction last week at $24,000, not much rise there. Frank Luqueer is building 3 houses besides the 2 you know of, he has sold 1 of the three. Robert gets in his new house May 1. James is interested in some way in the building of a 49th St. house opposite his own house.

The Velocipede has been sent home Bill $5. The spokes are all firm but nothing has been done

[Page 4]

to the hubs, the cracks re not filled with putty but I suppose they are as sound as new ones, the cracks being superficial. Theo says that Southern C.O.D. means $2.50 additional on every $50 which pays the Express for taking the money. Fellow countrymen can these things be? I shall stop at Moore’s & pay if I am in time before shipment of F’s gun.

Insect Pins (large) – I regret to report that after taking out each drawer in the Secretary & looking in all accessible segar [sic] Boxes I find Nary.

If you remember the few possible places where you could have put them & tell me, after putting on your thinking cap I can find them or will purchase if you give technical description.

                                   Affect[ionately], Pop


On his first trip to Florida, shortly before the receipt of this letter, Theodore Luqueer Mead, 1852-1936, captured a butterfly specimen only encountered once before, beginning what would be the work of a lifetime in the state. After a butterfly collecting trip to Colorado and the Southwest in the early 1870s, graduation from Cornell University in 1877, and a second research trip to the West, Mead settled near Enterprise, Florida. Managing his citrus groves and continuing the work which so fascinated him over the course of sixty years, he subsequently became the foremost authority in the hybridization of flowers, particularly orchids. He also pioneered the spraying of warm water from artesian wells onto citrus trees, allowing the crop to survive sub-freezing temperatures. Mead Botanical Garden in Winter Park, Florida is named in his honor. Theodore’s brother, Samuel H. Mead, Jr., died of an accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound in 1875.

The pages are lightly toned, with easily reparable separation at two horizontal folds.

# 7755

Assuring his defeat in the upcoming election, Oregon Governor Ben Olcott denounces the Ku Klux Klan

Typed Letter Signed, on official 6 ¾” x 9” stationery as Oregon governor. In this excellent communication, Olcott expresses thanks to “Mr. Binger Hermann, Roseburg, Oregon,” for sending a newspaper containing an article written by Hermann. Governor Olcott concurs in Hermann’s denouncement of the Ku Klux Klan, at the time an ascending, openly acknowledged presence in the politics of the state.


“State of Oregon, Executive Department, Salem. September 20, 1922. My Dear Mr. Hermann: I am in receipt of copy of the Coquille paper containing a most interesting article from your pen and which I have read with great interest. I appreciate your remembering me in this connection. I have not forgotten the fine letter you wrote me several months ago in connection with the proclamation issued by this office against the activities of the nefarious and odious Ku Klux Klan organization. It was a master piece and I took the liberty of reading it to several of my close friends also of yours. In the hundreds of communications I have received on this subject none exceeded or even equaled yours. With assurance of high respect and all good wishes, I remain Sincerely yours, Ben W. Olcott, Governor.”


As secretary of state, Olcott assumed office after the death of Oregon Governor James Withycombe on March 3, 1919. Refusing the support of the Klan, Olcott won the Republican nomination for governor, but was defeated in the 1922 general election – just weeks after the steadfast disgust affirmed in this letter - by Klan-backed state Senator Walter M. Pierce.

The letter is lightly and evenly toned, with a center horizontal fold and scattered minor staining.

“Washington, D.C., Feb[ruary] 18, 1899. Ellis D. Robb, Esq[uire], Eldorado, Georgia. Dear Sir; Yours of the 17th, making inquiry relative to Gen. Shafter and others, has been received. So far as I know none of these officers are in Florida. If you wish to get letters to them, you can address the army officers in care of the War Department and the Naval officer in care of the Navy Department, at Washington; and I feel sure that if thus addressed they will be forwarded to them, wherever they may be. Yours very truly, S. Pasco."


The letter is lightly and evenly toned with scattered stains, as well as several nicks, tears, and small breaks in the paper at the margins and edges. There is weakness and clean separation at the edges of a horizontal fold at the center, along with bleeding to the ink in Pasco’s signature.

NewREVOLUTIONARY WAR IN NEW YORK CITY - 1776

# 7723

Fearing Invasion and Bombardment from British Warships, the Defenses of New York City are prepared for the arrival of General Washington

Manuscript Document, 8” x 8 ¼”, in an unidentified hand, March 21 & 22, 1776. An historically important return for hardware issued in preparing the defenses of New York City just a month before the arrival of General Washington, quantities of tools being dispensed by Quartermaster Nicholas Quackenbush, “Pick Axes, Spaides, Iron Shovels, Shod Shovels, Crow Barrs, Saws, and W[heel] Barrows,” are listed at left and right.

Captioned at center, “On Account, Intrenching Tools delivered to the undermention[e]d Captains by N[icholas] Quack[enbu]sh…March 21st 1776, this day on duty,” and similarly entitled at mid-page for the following day, the commanders and locations in lower Manhattan for which the hardware is provided being enumerated below.


Stephen [?]…B[unker] Hill; Peter Houtenburgh…Fort; Sam[ue]l Johnson…B[unker] Hill; John Meaks…P[ack] Slip; Evert…Byrancks [Wharf], Exch[ange] Slip; W. K…Bur[lings] Slip; W. R…Fly Market; W. Denning…Beckman Slip (probably Committee of One Hundred member and Revolutionary War-era New York Congressman); A. Van D…Coffee House [Slip]; Robert Benson…Old Slip; Capt[ain] Minthorn…at the fort; ...Old Slip & Coffee House [Slip]; Burmingham…Bayerd hill; Wolf…B[unker] Hill & P[ack] Slip; John Turner…Broad Street; W. January, Beekm[an]’s [Wharf] & Burl[ing] Slip


After the year-long Siege of Boston forced the British to evacuate in March 1776, they turned their attention to New York City. Work on that city’s fortifications - virtually non-existent at the time – was begun by Continental Army General Charles Lee, who arrived in the ill-prepared city by order of General George Washington in late January 1776. Concerned for an uprising of the city’s sizable loyalist population and fearing bombardment by British warships in New York Harbor, Washington arrived and took command of the American forces in early April, just days after the accomplishment of this document. As expected, the warship HMS Asia arrived in New York Harbor on May 27, with another one hundred thirty ships from the British fleet soon to follow. The stage was set for the battles of Brooklyn Heights, Harlem Heights, White Plains, and Fort Washington. The city was evacuated in mid-November, and remained in British hands for the remainder of the war.

The document is lightly and evenly toned, with the expected folds and minor stains, and the bottom edge is somewhat irregular.
