[Civil War - Prelude to War] An important collection of nine letters and documents.

Lot 15: [Civil War - Prelude to War] An important collection of nine letters and documents.

by Profiles in History

July 11, 2014, 11:00 AM PST

Calabasas, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $8,000 - $12,000

Description: 15. [Civil War – Prelude to War] An important collection of nine letters and documents covering the events and central characters leading to the outbreak of war. Highlights include:Stevens, Isaac I. Letter signed, 3 pages quarto, Office Coast Survey, Washington, D.C., 26 November 1852, to a Major; with one handwritten correction; mounted to a larger leaf at the margin on verso of the third page. A Northern Democrat, Stevens was a General for the Union who would die in action leading a charge at the second Bull Run on 1 September 1862. One thing, as President Lincoln remarked, was certain – Stevens and other political opponents of the Republicans had proven with their blood that their devotion to the Union was second to none. Stevens writes in part: I take the liberty to offer some suggestions in reference to a bridge across the Potomac. I know your public spirit and the interest you take in the welfare of the City of Washington. The City authorities have already moved in the matter of the extension of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, and it seems to me now is the time to strike for a permanent structure to unite us with Virginia, one which will be creditable to the metropolis of a great nation, and which shall make easy of access the neighboring country. My attention has been directed to this subject for a long time, and I am impressed with the connection that the railroad bridge and the bridge for ordinary travel should be united. Both must be solid and enduring structures made of the best materials, and of the same general style of architecture…and I cannot doubt that it would determine without delay to give our City a communication with Virginia. I am ready to do what little I can to bring about so desirable an end…Wise, Henry A. Autograph letter signed, 3 pages octavo, Anly, near Ananicock Virginia, 28 July 1855, to B.B. French, Winfield Scott’s Chief-of-Staff.Wise became Governor of Virginia in 1855 and later a Confederate general. An active advocate of states rights, he had initially opposed secession, believing that Virginia could defend its rights within the Union. He writes in part: ...The representations to me concerning your connection with Know Nothings were wholly different from your own statements. Your adherence, I was told, continued until late this spring. When you separated from the organization it was said that you made it a donation and it was supposed it had your sympathies. This was affirmed so boldly and often that I believed you were of the order, implicitly, though nothing could have given me more surprise. I confided in you as a Democrat and regretted exceedingly that you had left your old friends for a new ‘Ism,’ as I still am surprised that you should ever have allowed yourself to be duped by the imposter. I think you may attribute the distrust of yourself as a sound Democrat to your own continuance with the council or to your silence in not disclaiming connection with it. I spoke indignantly to the President and to everybody of those Democrats who were in office and who had joined Sam and had failed to denounce and renounce him as soon as he was known to them. I spoke this of you with much regret because I was warmly attached to you personally and was mad that you should have so blundered. I could not confide in what any man would say as long as he was a member of the order. I think you did right to resign at the same time as I think your resignation makes the proper atonement and that you should not be prejudiced in future. Were I in your place I would publicly announce my withdrawal. Your friend Mr. Lewis is mistaken in supposing I was informed by a person he calls “Bill Robinson.” I don’t know who he is.Parker, Theodore. Autograph letter signed, 1 page quarto, Boston, 7 July 1855, to Henry Wilson, ardent anti-slavery advocate.Parker was a abolitionist and theologian who gained notoriety for his public vilification of Massachusetts senator Daniel Webster for voting in favor of the Fugitive Slave Act as well as raising money and providing encouragement for John Brown’s raid on Harper’s Ferry. He writes in part: ...Thank you for the noble service you have done for the cause of Freedom. You stand up most mercifully and heroically, and do battle for the right. I do not know how to thank you enough. You do rally at all places, all times. If the rest of your senatorial term be like this part, we shall get times as we only wished for but dare not hope as yet. There is a North, a real North quite visible now. God bless you for your services and keep you ready for more.Seward, William H. Autograph letter signed, 1 page octavo, Washington, 16 April 1856. To W.R.G. Miller, Gloucester, Massachusetts. Seward writes in part: …I begin to look forward with confidence to a time when I can resign and retire from active service without doing the cause a serious injury. Mrs. Seward joins me in assurances of sincere and devoted respect and esteem for Mrs. Mellon & yourself.When Seward wrote this letter, he was an active abolitionist and leader of the anti­slavery wing of the Whig Party, which he had led into the Republic Party the previous year.Sherman, William Tecumseh. Autograph letter signed (“W.T. Sherman”), 4 pages quarto, Leavenworth, Kansas, 16 November 1858, to J. E. Williams, President, Metropolitan Bank, New York, New York. He writes in part: ...I see your prediction is now realized, and that the Republicans have succeeded every where this fall. For myself, I have hardly had time to form strong political preferences - My Army life first and Ranching next were not such as to make a choice necessary, but now that I am in a life where all must be classified, I feel the necessity of caution. My brother John Sherman in Congress is Republican enough to suit the most ultra - My two partners here are the sons of the Hon. Thomas Ewing of Ohio, and have been here for two years and have been free-state men. Had I been here I am free to confess I should have opposed Kansas’ becoming a slave state, because it is not suited to slave labor. And more especially because it was attempted by unfair means - That question is now forever at rest so far as Kansas is concerned. And I am convinced that Missouri certain, Kentucky, Virginia and Maryland also will little by little fill up with white laborers who will displace a corresponding number of slaves, and having votes will soon outvote the owners of slaves. And thereby convert these slave states into free.But the extreme southern states will not be free during our time, and I am willing to abide the solution that Providence will indicate in due Course of Development…I should vote against slavery here in any shape. I would oppose it as a matter of common ‘foul play’ if the administration should attempt to force it here where it is not wanted - but I should in like manner discourage and even oppose any interference with slavery in Missouri or Kentucky by their free state neighbors…The State of South Carolina. A formal manuscript ultimatum from South Carolina for the President of the United States, 5 pages folio, on State of South Carolina, Executive Office, State Department letterhead, Charleston, 12 January 1861, being the letter of instructions from South Carolina’s Secretary of State, Andrew Cordon Magrath, to Isaac William Hayne, Special Envoy from the State of South Carolina to the President of the United States, as well as serving as the state’s Attorney General; light soiling.After having voted to succeed from the Union on 20 December 1860, the State of South Carolina attempts to negotiate as a sovereign nation with the United States concerning the removal of US Troops from Fort Sumter. Excerpts therefrom: The Governor has considered it proper in view of the grave questions which now affect the State of South Carolina and the United States, to make a demand upon the President of the United States for the delivery to the State of South Carolina of Fort Sumter, now within the territorial limits of this State, and occupied by troops of the United States…The interruption of these negotiations left all matters connected with Fort Sumter and troops of the United States, within the limits of this State; affected by the fact that the continued possession of the Fort was not consistent with the dignity or safety of the State, and that an attempt to reinforce the troops at that fort, would not be allowed. This, therefore, became a state of hostility in consequence of which the State of South Carolina was placed in a condition of defence. During the preparation for this purpose, an attempt was made to reinforce Fort Sumter and repelled…The Governor to save life, and determined to omit no course of proceeding usual among civilized Nations, previous to that condition of general hostilities, which belongs to War; and not Knowing under what order, or by what authority, Fort Sumter is now held…You will therefore demand from the President of the United States, the withdrawal of the troops of the United States from that fort, and its delivery to the State of South Carolina…Carl Sandburg, winner of the 1940 Pulitzer Prize in History for Abraham Lincoln: The War Years, writes in Lincoln Collector: The Story of Oliver R. Barrett’s Great Private Collection (New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1949), about the letter here offered, which was then in Barrett’s collection: “On December 20, 1860, in secret session, the unanimous vote of 169 delegates forming a State Convention, ‘dissolved’ the bonds holding South Carolina a part of the United States. The delegates, one by one, signed the Ordinance of Secession. Governor F.W. Pickens of South Carolina on December 22 wrote to the president of the Convention: I have recd from the Convention as yet no official notification of the purpose of the ordinance. I would most respectfully suggest that any such notice be given in order that I may issue a proclamation announcing to the World, that we are a free and independent Republic ... Governor Pickens named a ‘Special Envoy,’ I.W. Hayne, to go to the capital of ‘a foreign power,’ Washington, D.C., there to call on the Chief Magistrate, there ‘to make a demand.’” Sandburg continued, “Hayne carried a letter of instructions, an important document.”President Buchanan refused an interview to ‘Special Envoy’ Hayne and sent word that any communication must be in writing, under the old theory that ‘a written paper is the best witness.’ After days of waiting and conference with Southern colleagues, Hayne delivered his important document of 12 January 1861, into the hands of President Buchanan. What the President read, if it had to be put in short and simple words, carried the notice: ‘We don’t want war but you can be sure we are ready to make war if we don’t hear the right answers.’” Carl Sandburg proceeded to transcribe the text of the “important document,” then in Oliver R. Barrett’s collection, the present document here offered.Provenance: Parke-Bernet Galleries, New York, The Public Auction of Barrett’s collection of Lincolniana City, 19 February 1952.Thompson, Jacob. Letter signed (“J Thompson”), 5 pages octavo, Memphis, [Tennessee], 21 September 1877, to J[eremiah] S. Black, Buchanan’s Attorney General; with handwritten corrections.The Secretary of the Interior under President Buchanan writes a letter to set the record straight on Buchanan’s role in North Carolina’s secession from the Union. Thompson writes in full: I feel bound in vindication of the truth of history & in justice to the memory of a chief magistrate who held the reigns of Government in the most trying crisis in the history of the Government, to explain some of the facts connected with my mission to North Carolina. Sometime in the December 1860, while I was Secretary of the Interior, the Gov of Mississippi sent me a letter requesting me to act as commissioner of that State to the State of North Carolina and urge her to cooperate with Mississippi in measures for the protection and maintenance of Southern rights. This appointment was unexpected and took me by surprize. I was known as a co-operationist and opposed to separate State action. I believed all the Southern States should have a perfect understanding with each other and when the time came for movement, if movement must be made, they should all act together & simultaneously. At that time Mr Buchanan had sent to Congress, his very able message in which he had denounced secession as a heresy, unconstitutional and unauthorized. I differed from that message in this, that while I admitted that the constitution did not provide this remedy for the States, yet each had retained the right from which they had never parted, to withdraw, for cause, the powers they had conferred upon the General Government & resume the full exercise of them…When the Governor’s letter was received and I had determined it was my duty to accept the appointment, I sought and obtained a private interview with the President and told him I wished a leave of absence to visit the Legislature of N.C. At first he endeavored to dissuade me from going: but as I persisted, he insisted upon knowing what I proposed to do. I unbosomed myself to him with the utmost frankness. I told him that an exciting canvass was going on in Mississippi on the subject of Secession. That I was opposed to any hasty or hurried action on the part of the State. But that he knew my conviction was that I owed my primary allegiance to my state and whatever destiny she chose, must necessarily be my destiny. As yet there was no existing cause which would justify secession…If the President preferred, I would at once resign or I would hold my place just as he desired. To this he frankly replied, that while he feared I would be subject of misconstruction, yet he could not say he wished me to resign. And with that leave of absence I visited N.C...I cannot close this letter without bearing my testimony to the greatness, goodness & worth of our old departed Chieftain. It was his fortune to live amid disolving empires. But a purer man, a more sincere friend, a more devoted patriot, an honester citizen and truer guardian of the public interest never lived or wielded power.In January 1861, Thompson differed with Buchanan over the sending of the relief ship Star of the West to Fort Sumter and resigned his post. Returning to Mississippi, he offered his services to the Confederate Army and received a commission as a Lieutenant Colonel.Walker, Leroy P. Letter signed (“L.P. Walker”), 3 pages quarto, Montgomery, Alabama, 1 March 1861, to A[ndrew] B. Moore, confederate governor of Alabama, on imprinted stationery of the War Department, as Secretary of War. He writes in part: The Congress have passed an Act to raise provisional forces for the Confederate States of America, and for other purposes. I beg to enclose a copy of the act Under this act, the President directs me to inform you, that he assumes control of all military operations in your State, having reference to, or connected with question between your State, and powers foreign to it. He also directs me to request that you will communicate without delay to this Department, the quantity and character of army and munitions of war acquired from the United States, and which are now in the Forts, Arsenals, and Navy Yards of your State, and all other army and munitions which your State may desire to tum over, and make changeable to this Government. The President further directs me to say, that he will proceed with as little delay as possible to organize the provisional forces in the respective states, as provided for in the 3rd & 4 sections of said act...Jefferson Davis was elected president of the Confederate States of America on 18 February 1861.Thomas, Lorenzo. Autograph letter signed, 3 pages octavo, Head Quarters of the Army, Washington, 2 March 1861, to B.B. French, Winfield Scott’s Chief of Staff and Chief Marshal at Lincoln’s first inaugural procession. He writes in full: The General in Chief [Winfield Scott] proposes that the army shall be represented in the inauguration procession by a company of horse, and one of sappers and miners availing himself of your polite invitation, he requests that you will assign the horse to the lead of the military escort and the sappers and miners to the position immediately in front of the President elect, that is of the national flag which will precede him. The General is particularly desirous that this latter company may be near the President elect to guard his personal safety, having a very great reliance on the superior merit of the company which is composed of picked men.In just one month the country would be at war. $8,000 - $12,000
