NewOLCOTT, BEN W. (1872-1952) Governor of Oregon – 1919-1923; Oregon Secretary of State – 1911-1920

# 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.

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.
