1844 First Lady ANNA HARRISON Autograph Letter Signed Wife of President Harrison

Lot 37: 1844 First Lady ANNA HARRISON Autograph Letter Signed Wife of President Harrison

by Early American

April 25, 2015, 9:00 AM PST

Rancho Santa Fe, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $1,800 - $2,400

Description: Autographs1844 Anna Harrison First Lady and Widow of President William Henry Harrison Autograph Letter Signed ANNA SYMMES HARRISON (1775-1864). First Lady and Wife of President William Henry Harrison. The First Lady of the United States during her husband's One-Month Term in 1841 (President Harrison died on April 4th), and she never entered the White House!September 10, 1844-Dated, Autograph Letter Signed, "A Harrison" in brown ink on a double sided page, North Bend, 2 pages, front and back, measuring 10" x 7.75", Choice Extremely Fine. This fresh appearing very personal Handwritten and Signed Letter by Anna Harrison is addressed to a "Mrs Carman." The content expresses general complaints about her poor health and speaks of various social affairs and of her friends. This Letter is very well written, easily readable, having vivid brown nicely written text upon clean, period wove paper with standard light mailing folds. The "Sanders" Autograph Price Guide lists her average ALS at $1,844, while this is a rather more extensive, high quality Letter. Anna Harrison's personal Letters are indeed rare. Anna Harrison (1775-1864), was wife of President William Henry Harrison and grandmother of President Benjamin Harrison. She was nominally First Lady of the United States during her husband's one-month term in 1841, but she never entered the White House.When William was inaugurated in 1841, Anna was detained by illness at their home in North Bend. She decided not to accompany him to Washington. President-elect Harrison asked his daughter-in-law Jane Irwin Harrison, widow of his namesake son, to accompany him and act as hostess until Anna's proposed arrival in May. Half a dozen other relatives happily went with them. On April 4, exactly one month after his inauguration, President Harrison died. Anna was packing for the move to the White House when she learned of William's death in Washington, so she never made the journey.

After his time as Attorney General, he became the port officer for the District of the Potomac and among the most prominent trial lawyers in Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia.Lee represented William Marbury and other appointees of John Adams in Marbury v. Madison, the landmark case against the Jefferson administration for unfulfilled political appointments. Simultaneously, he defended Hugh Stuart in Stuart v. Laird.He declined Thomas Jefferson's offer to appoint him a justice of the Supreme Court.Lee died in 1815 in Fauquier County, Virginia, aged 56 or 57, and is buried in the Warrenton Cemetery in Warrenton.

Author THOMAS L. McKENNEY 1848 Autograph Letter Signedto Dolley Madison

Lot 58: Author THOMAS L. McKENNEY 1848 Autograph Letter Signedto Dolley Madison

by Early American

April 25, 2015, 9:00 AM PST

Rancho Santa Fe, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $4,000 - $6,000

Description: AutographsThomas L. McKenney's Handwritten 1848 Letter to Dolley MadisonTHOMAS L. McKENNEY (1785-1858). Superintendent of Indian Affairs under President James Madison in 1816 and Author the historic 3-Volume "History of the Indian Tribes".December 29, 1848-Dated, Historic Content Autograph Letter Signed, "Tho L McKenney" addressed to Dolley Madison (Prior First Lady as Wife of President James Madison), New York City, 3 pages, measuring 7.5" x 10", Choice Very Fine. This personal and historical content Letter partially reads:"... I hope to be excused for taxing your memory... the only Interview I ever had with Mr. Madison, upon any subject connected with General Armstrong, was on F. Street, (he being on horseback) when I was Commissioned by General Smith, in Company with Major Williams to report to the President, the state of revolt in which the Troops on Windmill Hill, were thrown, on the Appearance of General Armstrong among them, after the Conflagration of the Capitol... It is for History I ask this Information -- as well as to shew before it shall have passed to the final record, the falsehood of connecting me with this 'Hanson and Bavie' Committee..."Aside from some expected light even tone, one small perforation this important Letter is in very nice overall condition. A few unrelated pencil notations and a brief red manuscript biography of McKenney appear on the blank back panel. The Handwritten text and signature are very clear and easily readable being upon clean period wove paper. A wonderful addition to any historical Autograph collection combining Thomas L. McKenney's Handwritten Letter and sent to none other than Dolley Madison!Thomas L. McKenney (1785-1858) was a Georgetown merchant, was appointed Superintendent of Indian Affairs in 1816 by President James Madison. He went on to author the 3-volume "History of the Indian Tribes" and maintained a close relationship with the Madison Family.Thomas Loraine McKenney (1785-1859) started out his career as a merchant. In 1815 he ran a commission store near the ferry wharf in Georgetown. He was also on the board of directors of the Bank of Columbia, in Georgetown, with John Cox, John Threlkeld, and Henry Foxall. In 1816 McKenney secured a Federal appointment as Superintendent of Indian Trade. The Bureau of Indian Trade had its office in the old Bank of Columbia building at 3210 M Street, N.W.McKenney was appointed by President Madison to be Superintendent of Indian Trade, April 2, 1816, to replace John Mason, who had resigned (Intelligencer, April 9, 1816); he knew nothing of Indians, but was well-versed in trade."My commission bears date the 2d day of April, 1816. I entered upon the duties of my office on the 12th of the same month. I had for some time, nearly two years before, disposed of my mercantile establishments, of which I was owner of two in Georgetown, and held an interest, till about the period of my appointment, in a store in Washington, under the firm of J. C. Hall & Co." (McKenney, Thomas L., Memoirs, Official and Personal: Thomas L. McKenney, 1846)In those days delegations of Indians that came to Washington generally stayed in hotel rooms; the beds had been removed to accommodate their preference for sleeping on the ground. Some of these representatives of southern and western tribes also visited Weston, McKenney's farm on Georgetown Heights.In 1820, Sans Nerf, a chief of the Great Osages, and two companions, were there. In the winter of 1821-22 a delegation of Pawnee, Sauk, Fox, Menominee, Miami, Sioux, and Chippewa Indians came to the farm, and in 1824, Cherokee chief Elijah Hicks was there.The Factory System of government trading posts involved commodities as coffee, sugar, lead, salt, penknives, northwest blankets, calico, and strouding (coarse woolen cloth used in the Indian trade). What came back were furs. "Thomas L. McKenney - furs, peltries for sale at the Superintendant of Indian trade in Georgetown". (Alexandria Gazette, March 19, October 16, 1817; November 10, 1818)The Factory System ended in 1822, over opposition by the John Jacob Astor's American Fur Company, and by manufacturers and merchants who resented McKenney, and the Georgetown merchants he favored. One such merchant was John Cox, importer and banker, and later mayor of Georgetown. Cox loaned money to McKenney to buy Weston, and McKenney bought from Cox for the Indian trade, nearly to the exclusion of other merchants. (McKenney, Thomas L., Memoirs, Official and Personal: Thomas L. McKenney, 1846)From 1824 to 1830, McKenney served as Superintendent of Indian Affairs. While his upbringing as a merchant had no doubt prepared him for the earlier position, supervising the Indian Trade, his qualifications to be an architect of Indian policy are harder to picture.McKenney's transactions with the "civilized" southern tribes had, at one time, persuaded him that Indians might be able to adopt white values, and McKenney made several experiments along these lines of his own (albeit at government expense).In 1818, James Lawrence MacDonald, son of a Choctaw woman and a white man, raised by Baltimore Quakers, came to Weston, McKenney's farm on Georgetown Heights, and worked for him at the War Department. In 1827 McKenney brought two Creek boys back to Washington to be educated. One was William Barnard, son of Major Timpoochee Barnard, an ally of Andrew Jackson in the Creek War. A boy named Lee Compere was William Barnard's companion. The boys remained with McKenney for three years. Finally, in 1828, Dougherty Colbert, age 15, the son of a Chickasaw chief, came to live at Weston, to attend school in Georgetown. Colbert was praised by McKenney for losing the Chickasaw language!As wrong-headed as such experiments must appear to us, in McKenney's view the alternatives were worse: Indians who did not assimilate, or move beyond the Mississippi River, were doomed. In 1829 McKenney wrote: "We believe if the Indians do not emigrate, and fly the causes, which are fixed in themselves, and which have proved so destructive in the past, they must perish!" (Stuart Banner, How The Indians Lost Their Land, p.209)Although these views would seem to conform to those generally ascribed to Andrew Jackson, in 1830 McKenney was dismissed for not being in harmony with the Indian policy of the Jackson administration. At the same time President Jackson ordered the War Department to remove McKenney's Indian boys from school and return them to their people.McKenney's dismissal ushered in the second phase of his career. Perhaps as early as 1816 McKenney had imagined an Indian archive, which would be "preserved for the information of future generations and long after the Indians will have been no more". During the years McKenney worked in the War Department he had made it standard procedure that members of Indian delegations would, at War Department expense, have their likenesses recorded in oil paint. By 1830 the artist Charles Bird King had painted about a hundred and twenty portraits, which McKenney did not permit any other artists to copy; his intention, from the start, had been to publish them himself.Shortly before being fired by President Jackson, McKenney announced plans for the portfolio of hand-colored lithographs of these portraits, "with biographical sketches and anecdotes of the principal chiefs". McKenney moved to Philadelphia, where his publisher was, and had the paintings sent to him one at a time, to be copied in oil for the lithographer to work from.The text, which was to consist of history and individual biographies, was not written by McKenney -- who knew "knew nothing but the names", according to his co-author James Hall -- but by Hall, based on interviews with Indian agents, traders and soldiers, but not -- it need hardly be said -- with Indians.The History of the Indian Tribes of North America, by Thomas McKenney and James Hall, which came out in three volumes between 1836 and 1844, is now considered a landmark of American ethnography, and one of the major American publications of the nineteenth century.Sources: Historical Sketches of Glover Park, Upper Georgetown, and Georgetown Heights by Carlton FletcherHerman J.

LITERATURE: J. B. Waterbury, "Paris Letter," Brooklyn Life [New York], May 23, 1896, p. 10. San Francisco Call, Vol. 84, No. 166, November 13, 1898, mentions Le Grand Miroir hanging in the personal apartments of William II of Germany. This majestic seascape is the painting which both launched and secured Alexander Harrison's reputation as one of the finest sea painters of his day. In a review following the painting's enthusiastic reception at the 1896 Champs de Mars exhibition in Paris, Jennie Bullard Waterbury penned an effusive appreciation of it, mirroring the general sentiment, and using its faithfulness to nature to make a dig at the Impressionists: "Alexander Harrison's Grand Miroir is a remarkable study of the sea at low tide, 'remarkable' even for Alexander Harrison. The little ripples curve and curl and caress and lap and lip the sand after the fashion of live nature's little waves; and the sea is opalined and dimpled, and mutinous and softly treacherous like the genuine sea. The work is legitimate, without a hint of virtuosity or flourish. Just the sea we know. Who cares for any other sea? The sea of the impressionists, for instance, wherein the waves look like crepe-lisse ruching, with a cream-colored embroidery on the edge. When we onlookers desire ruching, we can buy it; but when we want sea, the next best way to get it, if we do not find it convenient to go to the sea shore, is to study it apres Alexander Harrison." Philadelphia-born artist Thomas Alexander Harrison spent most of his career in France where he specialized in painting the sea and won many awards for his work in international exhibitions. Some of his most beautiful paintings are nocturnes, where he studied the effects of moonlight on water. Harrison studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts before moving to Paris in 1878 to study at the École des Beaux-Arts with Gerome and Bastien-Lepage. Chafing under the restraints of the schools, he traveled to Breton, where at Pont-Aven and Concarneau he turned his attention to marine painting and landscape. Harrison rented a ramshackle cottage near the Brittany town of Beg-Meil, and each evening raced to the dunes to watch the sun set over the ocean. Late in the summer of 1896, he was joined there by struggling writer Marcel Proust and composer Reynaldo Hahn. He opened their eyes to how light plays on water: "We have seen the sea successively turn blood red, purple, nacreous with silver, gold, white, emerald green, and yesterday we were dazzled by an entirely pink sea specked with blue sails." (Hahn to Marie Nordlinger, quoted in William C. Carter, Marcel Proust, A Life (New Haven, 2000), p. 197.) Hahn is considered the inspiration for the title character in Proust's attempted first novel Jean Santeuil, but another character, "C", seems to be based on Harrison, along with aspects of the character Elstir, the painter in Remembrance of Things Past.
