Madison, James

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $2,500 - $3,500

Description: Madison, James. (1751-1836) 4th President of the United States (1809-1817). Autograph letter signed ("J. Madison Jr") as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Virginia, 1 page, 12 7/8 x 8 in., Philadelphia, March 21, 1796. Light toning; a few small archival repairs on verso. To Thomas Jefferson, who had retired to Monticello when he resigned as Secretary of State in December 1793. Madison writes: "At the desire of Mr. de Liancourt I put into his hand this introduction to your remembrance of him as an acquaintance at Paris. He meditates a visit to the Southern States and expects to have the pleasure of taking Monticello oin his route, either in going or returning. I need add nothing to your knowledge of his respectability & virtues, I shall only say that the impression I have of both, induces me to concur cheerfully in the use he now makes of me...." The letter is docketed on the verso in Jefferson's hand: "Madison James. Phila. Mar. 21.96. recd here 22." Jefferson would run for President this same year and come in second to John Adams; he had enough electoral votes to become Vice President. Ironically, the watermark on the paper used by Madison is a crown with the letters "GR." Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,500

Madison, James

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $2,000 - $3,000

Description: Madison, James. Autograph letter signed ("Js Madison Jr."), 1 page, on laid paper watermarked with a star, 9 1/2 x 7 1/4 in., no place, Aug. 28, 1799. To Thomas Jefferson, regarding a plasterer for Monticello. Holograph address panel has "FREE" stamp and is directed to "Thomas Jefferson V. President of the United States at Monticello." Docketed by Jefferson: "Madison James. Aug. 28.99." Paper loss seal tear at top; remnant strip at left margin. Madison writes: "The letter for Lumsden inclosed in your favor by Mrs. M. got into his hands in time for the inclosed answer from him [not present]. If the time & terms on which he proposes to send one of his hands be unobjectionable, I can venture to recommend the choice he has made. He appears to be really an accomplished plaisterer. I write a few lines by the present opportunity to Mr. H. and shall be at Monticello on Sunday next. I shall probably ride up to Col. Monroe's the day preceding."On Aug. 23, 1799, Jefferson had written Madison a letter with important political content but, always thinking of how he could improve Monticello, included a paragraph: "Mrs. Madison tells me that Lumsden, your plaisterer lives about 10. or 15. miles from you & that an opportunity may perhaps be found of conveying him a letter. I trouble you with one, open, which when read be so good as to seal & forward by any opportunity you approve." Estimated Value $2,000 - 3,000 Sotheby's New York, June 5, 1996, lot 81.

Jefferson, Thomas. Autograph letter signed.

by Profiles in History

June 11, 2015, 11:00 AM PST

Calabasas, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $15,000 - $20,000

Description: 76. Jefferson, Thomas. Important autograph letter signed (“Th: Jefferson”), 2 pages (9.5 x 7.25 in.; 241 x 184 mm.), front and back, “Monticello”, 21 April 1810, written to his nephew and close friend John Wayles Eppes; docketed (on the verso, at the top margin) “Eppes John W. Apr. 21. 10.” Light browning; scattered spotting and later marginal ink splotch.Thomas Jefferson, wary of the deceptive Napoleon I – whom he calls the testy emperor, that spoiled child of fortune – first learns of Congress’ intent to repeal the Non-Intercourse Act, which reopened trade with England and France on 1 May 1810. Jefferson writes in full: I found here your letter of the 2nd on my return from a three weeks visit to Bedford: and as I see by a resolution of Congress that they are to adjourn on the 23rd. I shall direct the present to Eppington where it may meet you on your passage to Carolina. Mr. Thweatt is to let me know when I am to set out for Richmond. He says it will be in May & perhaps early. This however you can learn from him. My principal compensation for the journey is the visit to my friends at Eppington from which your absence would be a great deduction: for be assured that no circumstances on earth will ever lessen my affection for you, or my regret that any should exist which may affect the frequency of my meetings with you. But here I must brood over my grief in silence. The company of my dear Francis [John W. Eppes’ father] has been a great comfort to me this winter; I shall restore him to you at Eppington, in fine health I hope, and not less advanced in the first elements of education than might be expected. Patsy [Jefferson’s daughter, Martha Jefferson (1772-1836)] has the whole merit of this as her attentions to him have been the same as to her own.Your letter gave me the first intimation that an accommodation with England was expected. I rejoice at it; for she is the only nation from which serious injury is to be apprehended. This may put us under the ban of the testy emperor, that spoiled child of fortune, and it is true that if excluded from the continent our trade to England will be of no value. But I would rather suffer in interest than fail in good faith. We are neutrals, & have been honestly so. We have declared we would meet either or both parties in just accommodation, and if either holds off, it is her fault not ours. Altho’ connected with England in peace, I hope we shall be so with the other party in principal, and that our accommodation will involve no sacrifice of the freedom of the seas. For this however I can safely trust to the present administration, as well as the republican majority in Congress. In April 1809, the British minister in Washington, David M. Erskine, signed a convention providing for the mutual suspension of the British and American restrictions—effective 10 June 1809. However, the agreement was repudiated in London because Erskine had exceeded his instructions. Non-intercourse was restored against England by President James Madison (9 August 1809). On 1 March 1809, Thomas Jefferson himself, as President, had signed the Non-Intercourse Act (effective 15 March 1809), which reopened all overseas commerce to American shipping, with the exception of France and Great Britain.One year later, in May 1810, shortly after Jefferson’s letter, Congress repealed the Non-Intercourse Act and substituted Macon’s Bill #2, since the Non-Intercourse Act was set to expire at the close of the Second Session of the 11th Congress on 1 May 1810. The law reopened trade with England and France, though it promised to reimpose non-importation against either belligerent if the other rescinded its restrictions on neutral trade.It was Napoleon I’s opportunity to deceive the U.S. He ordered his Foreign Minister, the Duc de Cadore, to promise French cooperation. In the “Cadore Letter,” sent to the American government (August 1810), France pledged to suspend the Continental Decrees if the U.S. “shall cause their rights to be respected by the English” – presumably by reimposing non-importation. Of course, it was never Napoleon’s intention to make good on his promise. The French released a few American ships for appearances sake, and then continued to prey on American shipping. As well, they imposed a new series of French tariffs and exports restrictions which rendered American trade with the Continent virtually impossible. It was Napoleon’s plan to give the appearance of making concessions to the U.S. so as to further embroil the new nation with England. An important letter in which the ex-President foresees the problems to come from Napoleon I, whom he names “that spoiled child of fortune”, realizing that a war with Britain could only be detrimental to the United States, for, as he states, “England is the only nation from which serious injury is to be apprehended” – and also realizing that any such accommodation with Britain will most certainly aggravate the French Emperor. $15,000 - $20,000Provenance: Christie's, New York, 9 December 1994, lot 67.

Description: Madison, James. Autograph Letter Signed ("James Madison"), 1p, 10 x 8 in., Montpelier, December 1, 1822. To Judge (Bushrod) Washington. With hand-delivered leaf addressed by Madison to Judge Washington. Madison returns a package of his letters to George Washington:" I return under cover with this the second parcel of my letters to General Washington, which you were so obliging as to send me. I am sensible of the Delay in fulfilling my promise, but it is of late only that I could have the desired copies taken; and I ventured to suppose that the certainty of the return of the originals was the only circumstance to which any attention would be given. Having found in these papers several particulars which I wished to possess, and seeing by references in Genl. Washington's letters to me, to which I may add my own recollections, that there must be other letters from me to him, which might be put on his files. I can not but hope that a further search by the Chief Justice or yourself may procure for me the opportunity of looking into their contents; for which I shall feel a great addition to the obligations your kindness has already laid me under...."

Boone, Daniel and Rebecca

Estimated Price: $8,500 - $10,000

Description: Boone, Daniel and Rebecca. Autograph document signed ("Daniel Boone"), 1 page, 4 1/2 x 8 in., no place, but probably in present day Maysville, Kentucky, an Ohio River Port, July 30, 1785. Invoice to Colonel Rochester for surveying his lands and those of Colonel Harts plus "markers" and "provisions." With document signed ("Reback Boon"), 1 page, 5 x 8 1/4 in., no place, "this 2nd Day of April, 1796." Countersigned by Thomas Gray and James Horsby. A notice of consent for the marriage of her daughter: "This is to Certify that I, Rebekah Boon Have Give my free Concent that my Daughter Polley Lock may enter into Wedlock with Morton Coonce this given from under my hand and Seale this 2nd Day of April, 1796. Reback Boon." Addressed on the verso "To the Clarke of Jefferson County."An extremely unusual document.Daniel (1734-1820) and Rebecca Boone (1739-1813) had ten children including Enoch, the first white child born in Kentucky. There are a myriad of stories about this great pioneer frontiersman and his fights with both Indians, fellow settlers, and the government. On July 4, 1776, Boone's daughter Jemima was captured with two of her friends, by Shawnees outside of Boonesborough. Boone and several settlers from the town pursued the Indians, finally catching up with them, rescuing the girls from their captors. This was probably the most celebrated story of Boone's life, and it appeared as a fictionalized episode in James Fenimore Cooper's Book, The Last of the Mohicans. Estimated Value $8,500 - 10,000

Truman, Harry S

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $3,500 - $4,500

Description: Truman, Harry S. Typed letter signed as President, 1 page, on White House letterhead, Washington, Nov. 17, 1950. To Stephen B. Gibbons, Vice-President of the Hudson Trust Company, thanking him for a book on Woodrow Wilson and giving his opinion on which Presidents have been subjected to abuse by the press: "Harry Vaughan handed me the book on Woodrow Wilson's Political Education and I can't tell you how very much I appreciate having it. I have been trying to get a copy for some time and evidently you anticipated that want. The story of Wilson and his career is a dramatic one and I am glad to have this one on his Political Education. Most Presidents have been subjected to abuse and misrepresentation. Those who were treated the worst by the public press were Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Grover Cleveland and Woodrow Wilson and it is interesting to observe the reactions of those Presidents to the vicious attacks that were made upon them. Cleveland, I think, was the most misrepresented of any President who ever sat in the President's chair. I've stood quite a bit of abuse myself but it doesn't bother me like it seemed to have bothered those gentlemen. I have always been of the opinion that lies will answer themselves and that turned out to be true with all the Presidents."Thomas Jefferson was accused of fathering children by his slave Sally Hemings, an accusation penned by James Callender, the same man Jefferson had paid to launch a smear campaign against John Adams, and who turned on Jefferson when he was not accorded the postmaster appointment he desired. John Quincy Adams accused Jackson (correctly) of being a bigamist because his wife's first husband had not completed their divorce, even though he had published an article in his newspaper saying it was final; the Jacksons remarried in 1794 and Jackson never forgave his enemies for treating his wife as if she were a "fallen" woman. Lincoln was hated by the South, by Copperheads, by abolitionists, and other groups. Cleveland admitted to fathering a child out of wedlock, even though, as the only single man in his group of friends, he may have taken the fall for one of his married friends. His candor was refreshing and he won the White House in spite of it. During the campaign, his opponents would taunt, "Maw, Maw, where's my Paw?" The gleeful rejoinder was, "Gone to the White House, haw haw haw!" Woodrow Wilson took much criticism for his Fourteen Points and the League of Nations, and Truman took the reins of the nation in the wake of FDR's death, a job for which he felt totally unprepared. His 1948 election victory over Dewey was a major suprise. Truman was called upon to make many difficult decisions, including dropping the atomic bomb, the Berlin Airlift, approving the Marshall Plan, recognizing the new state of Israel, and becoming involved in the Korean War.

Jefferson, Thomas.

by Profiles in History

June 11, 2015, 11:00 AM PST

Calabasas, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $20,000 - $30,000

Description: 78. Jefferson, Thomas. Memoires de Maximilien de Bethune, Duc de Sully, Principal Ministre de Henri le Grand;… Nouvelle Edition… (Londres,  1767).  Vol. 1, 12mo, [lixi], [415, final page misprinted “115”] pp. Signed with his ownership initial, “T” beside the printed binder's signature mark (“I”) at the bottom of page 133 and again on page 373 where Jefferson adds an “I” to the signature mark “T” (Jefferson's typical style of ownership signature used in books from his library in which he substituted “I” for “J”). This volume was originally sold as a set of eight volumes by Hammer Galleries in 1941 as part of the sale of books from William Randolph Hearst’s library. Jefferson’s initials, as here, are found in most of his own books, which are rarely ever seen on the market. Binding worn, occasional foxing, some light tanning. Overall, very good condition, in unrestored contemporary French calf-gilt with morocco spine labels.Rare volume from Thomas Jefferson’s personal library – The Memoirs of the Duke of Sully – signed with his secret mark. Thomas Jefferson never used a bookplate to distinguish the more than 8,000 volumes he assembled during a lifetime of avid book collecting. Instead, he employed other identifying devices, such as the initials “T.I.”, so that even today a cursory glance at a volume marked by Jefferson will enable one to distinguish it not only as Jefferson’s, but probably to assign it to one of three distinct collecting periods. The initials “T.I.” with the block letter “I”, identifies this volume as one from Jefferson’s third personal library, the Poor Library (1815-26).Sowerby notes that Sully’s Memoires “are usually included in Jefferson’s lists of recommended historical reading.” Sowerby further notes that the first set that Jefferson owned, the set that was part of the library he sold to the Library of Congress, was the 1778 edition, purchased from Frullé in September, 1788, and noted as “8 vol. in 12, br. 16.” The set from which this volume originated, was almost certainly purchased by Jefferson to replace the set sold to the Library of Congress in 1815. This set is listed in the 1829 auction catalogue of Jefferson’s third personal library (item 75: 8 volumes, 12mo), but it was apparently kept by Thomas Jefferson Randolph.It is not surprising that Jefferson would recommend Sully’s memoirs as part of a course of historical reading, or that he would be sure to have a set at hand for himself—the two men shared several common notions. Maximilien de Bethune, duc de Sully (1560-1641) served King Henry IV of France in several capacities, as an army officer, engineer, Superintendent of Finances, and as a confidential advisor. As did Jefferson, Sully strongly favored agriculture over industry as an economic base, and encouraged its expansion. He also encouraged stock raising and forbade the destruction of forests. In order to facilitate trade, Sully encouraged internal improvements, sponsoring canals, roads, and bridges, and he abolished export fees on grains and wine. The first portion of Sully’s memoirs were originally published in 1638, and the work was translated into several languages and reprinted often.Provenance: 1. Thomas Jefferson2.

Davis, Jefferson

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $3,500 - $4,500

Description: Davis, Jefferson. Autograph letter signed, 1page, 8 x 6 1/2 in., Washington, July 11, 1860. To D. Funsten, Esqr. As a U.S. Senator from Mississippi. Davis was to resign in less than seven months upon the secession of his home state and become President of the Confederacy. He writes with a veiled reference to his pro-slavery beliefs, declining an invitation to "address the Democracy of Alexandria Va. tomorrow evening. My heart will be with you and my hope is confident that the land of Washington of Henry, of Jefferson and Madison will not fail to appreciate and maintain the principles which saved the Government in 1800 and which are involved in the issues of 1860. Very truly yours, Jefferson Davis."David Funsten (1819-1866) was from Clarke County, Virginia. He served in the Virginia House of Delegates in 1844 and 1845. He served in the Confederate Army and was elected to the First Confederate Congress in a special election to replace William "Extra Billy" Smith, who had resigned to return to his regiment. In the November 1863 election for the Second Confederate Congress, Funsten was also selected. Because of the end of the war, the Confederate Congress did not serve its full two-year term. Its final session took place on March 18, 1865. One of its final acts was the passage of a law allowing for the emancipation and military induction of any slave willing to fight for the Confederacy, a notion put forward by General Patrick Cleburn (killed at the Battle of Franklin on Nov. 30, 1864) a year earlier.
