Jefferson, Thomas. Letter signed (

Lot 54: Jefferson, Thomas. Letter signed ("Th: Jefferson"), 2 pages, Philadelphia, 21 March 1793.

by Profiles in History

July 11, 2014, 11:00 AM PST

Calabasas, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $10,000 - $15,000

Description: 54. Jefferson, Thomas. Letter signed (“Th: Jefferson”), 2 pages (9.12 x 7.5 in.; 232 x 191 mm.), Philadelphia, 21 March 1793, to Edward Fox, with the integral blank leaf attached.The beginning of a sensitive and critical period of foreign affairs.Jefferson writes in full: Present appearances in Europe rendering a general war there probable, I am to desire your particular attention to all the indications of it, and on the first imminent symptoms of rupture among the maritime powers, to put our vessels on their guard. In the same event the patronage of our Consuls will be particularly requisite to secure to our vessels the rights of neutrality, and protect them against all invasions of it. You will be pleased also in the same case to give no countenance to the usurpation of our flag by foreign vessels, but rather indeed to aid in detecting it, as without bringing to us any advantage, the usurpation will tend to commit us with the belligerant powers, and to subject those vessels which are truly ours to harrassing scrutinies in order to distinguish them from the counterfeits. The law requiring the consuls of the United States to give bond with two or more good sureties for the faithful performance of their duties, I enclose you a blank bond for that purpose. According to a standing regulation which places our Consuls in Europe in relation with the Minister of the United States in the same country with them, if there be one, and if none, then with their Minister in Paris, and our Consuls in America in immediate relation with the Secretary of State, you will be pleased to have your sureties approved by the person to whom you stand thus referred, and to send the bond when executed, by a safe conveyance, to the Secretary of State, to be disposed of according to law; and this with all the expedition the case will admit: provided this should not have been done before.A copy of the laws of the last Session of Congress will be sent to Mr. Pinckney, Minr. Pleny. of the United States in London to be forwarded to you. You will be pleased to address your letters always to ‘The Secretary of State for the United States of America at Philadelphia,’ without adding the name, in order to prevent the casualties to them which changes in the office might otherwise occasion...Jefferson, who served as Secretary of State throughout 1793, wrote this letter at the beginning of a critical period of foreign affairs. When the French Revolution broke out on 1 February 1793, public opinion toward the French was still favorable, though the conservative groups in America had followed the course of the Revolution in France with growing concern. Jefferson was determined that his country should take no action that would imply opposition to the principles of the French Revolution, but he fully shared the feeling of President Washington and Secretary of Treasury Hamilton that American neutrality was imperative. He successfully urged the avoidance of the word ‘neutrality’ in Washington’s proclamation. However, in order to offend the French as little as possible and in the hope of gaining from the British some concessions in the definition of contraband, he protested vigorously against British infringements of American neutral rights during the war. Yet, Jefferson was unable as Secretary of State to solve the problem of British relations, and he regarded Jay’s Treaty, which was negotiated under the influence of Hamilton as an ignominious surrender of American claims. His tangible achievements as Secretary of State were not commensurate with his devoted labors, but he had fully justified Washington’s confidence in him. Thomas Pinckney was the U.S. Minister to Great Britain from 1792 to 1794. $10,000 - $15,000

Jefferson, Thomas, as President. Highly important manuscript signed (

Lot 55: Jefferson, Thomas, as President. Highly important manuscript signed ("Th: Jefferson").

by Profiles in History

July 11, 2014, 11:00 AM PST

Calabasas, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $150,000 - $250,000

Description: 55. Jefferson, Thomas, as President.Highly important manuscript signed (“Th: Jefferson”) of his Address entitled “My Friends & Children Chiefs of the Cherokee Nation.” 4 pages (10 x 8 in.; 254 x 203 mm). [Washington], 10 January 1806; in pristine condition.Exceptional Jefferson manuscript speech signed as President: his famous address to the Chiefs of the Cherokee Nation, 1806.Extraordinary manuscript signed of President Jefferson’s address, as “The Great White Father” of the Indian Nation to his “Children,” the Chiefs of the Cherokee Nation. The purchase of Louisiana and the control of the Mississippi River opened vast territories in the West, and the Indians, forced by the advance of the white pioneers, were crossing the rivers to new hunting grounds. Some of the Cherokees had migrated to the West, but others had remained in Georgia and Tennessee. At the time of this address, the Cherokees had visited Washington to make a treaty defining their boundaries.The text of this remarkable manuscript is herewith transcribed:My Friends & Children Chiefs of the Cherokee Nation. Having now finished our business, & finished it I hope to mutual satisfaction, I cannot take leave of you without expressing the satisfaction I have received from your visit. I see with my own eyes that the endeavors that we have been making to encourage and lead you on in the way of improving your situation have not been unsuccessful; it has been like grain sown in good ground, producing abundantly. You are becoming farmers, learning the use of the plough & the hoe, inclosing your grounds & employing that labour in their cultivation which you formerly employed in hunting & in war; & I see handsome specimens of cotton cloth, raised, spun & wove by yourselves. You are also raising cattle & hogs for your food & horses to assist your labours; so on. My Children, in the same way, & be assured the further you advance in it the happier & more respectable you will be. Our brethren whom you have happened to meet here from the west & the north west, have enabled you to compare your situation now with what it was formerly. They also make the comparison. They see how far you are ahead of them, & by seeing what you are they are encouraged to do as you have done. You will find your next want to be mills to grind your corn, which by relieving your women from the loss of time in beating it into meal, will enable them to spin & weave more. When a· man has inclosed & improved his farm, built a good house on it, & raised plentiful stocks of animals, he will wish when he dies that these things should go to his wife & children, whom he loves more than he does his other relations, & for whom he will work with pleasure during his life. You will therefore find it necessary to establish laws for this. When a man has property earned by his own labour he will not like to see another come & take it from him, because he happens to be stronger, or else to defend it by spilling blood. You will find it necessary then to appoint good men, as Judges, to decide contests between man & man, according to reason, & to the rules you shall establish. If you wish to be aided by our council & experience in these things we shall always be ready to assist you with our advice. My Children, it is unnecessary for me to advise you against spending all your time & labor in warring with & destroying your fellow men, & wasting your own numbers. You already see the folly & the inequity of it. Your young men however are not yet sufficiently sensible of it. Some of them cross the Mississippi to go & destroy people who never did them an injury. My Children this is wrong, & must not be. If we permit them to cross the Mississippi to war with the Indians on the other side of that river, we must let those Indians cross the river to take revenge on you. I say again, this must not be. The Mississippi now belongs to us, it must not be a river of blood. It is now the water path along which all our people of Natchez, St. Louis, Indiana, Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky, & the western parts of Pennsylvania & Virginia are constantly passing, with their property to & from N. Orleans. Young men going to war are not easily restrained. Finding our people on the river, they will rob them, perhaps kill them. This would bring on a war between us and you. It is better to stop this in time, by forbidding your young people to go across the river to make war. If they go to visit, or to live with the Cherokees on the other side of the river we shall not object to that. That country is ours. We will permit them to live in it. My Children, this is what I wished to say to you. To go on in learning to cultivate the earth, and to avoid war. If any of your neighbors injure you, our beloved men whom we place with you will endeavor to obtain justice for you & we will support them in it. If any of your bad people injure your neighbors, be ready to acknowledge it & to do them justice. It is more honorable to repair a wrong than to persist in it. Tell all your chiefs, young men women & children that I take them by the hand & hold it fast, that I am their father, wish their happiness & well being, & am always ready to promote their good. My Children, I thank you for your visit, & may to the Great Spirit who made us all & planted us all in this land to live together like brothers, that he will conduct you safely to your homes & grant you to find your families & your friends in good health.

Estimated Price: $6,000 - $8,000

Description: 56. Jefferson, Thomas. As President Autograph letter in the third person (“Th. Jefferson”), 1 page (9.75 x 7.75 in.; 248 x 197 mm.), Washington, 3 May 1806, written as President, to Mr. Jacobsen; Very light foxing; marginal chipping.The day when the rights of neutrals shall no longer be the sport of the strongest . . .Th. Jefferson returns to M. Jacobsen his thanks for his Essay on the principles of the English and French Prize Courts respecting neutral commerce. Unacquainted with the language in which it is written, he has deposited it in the office of the Secretary of State, where it may on proper occasions render that service to the cause of neutrals which its estimable author has endeavored to promote. This publication will assist in hastening the day when the rights of neutrals shall no longer be the sport of the strongest, but shall receive their definition and sanction from the authority of the nations interested and united in this object. He salutes Mr. Jacobsen with esteem and respect. Barely two weeks after writing this letter, the English imposed a blockade against the Emperor, which extended along the European coast from Brest to the Elbe and excepted only the area between Ostend and the Seine. $6,000 - $8,000

Lot 62: Madison, James. Autograph letter signed, 2 pages, Washington, 14 February 1802, to Governor Mercer.

by Profiles in History

July 11, 2014, 11:00 AM PST

Calabasas, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $6,000 - $8,000

Description: 62. Madison, James. Autograph letter signed, 2 pages (10.25 x 8.12 in.; 260 x 206 mm.), Washington, 14 February 1802, to Governor Mercer in Annapolis, Maryland; with the integral address leaf; mounted on cardstock frame.As Secretary of State, Madison writes to the Governor of Maryland dismayed to observe the critical attitude in which he represents the politics of his own State.Madison writes in full: I have written a public acknowledgment of your public letter endorsing the observations of Mr. Chase on the Maryland Bank stock. This answers your private letter and at the same time I am sorry to observe the critical attitude in which you represent the politics of your State -of this I do not pretend to judge -others I find indulge better hopes. Be this as it may, be assured that no ground has been given or is likely to be given by the present administration for just censure in relation to the matter in question. Mr. King appears to be well informed of the nature of the claim & to have pursued it down to the latest dates, with due attention. The sudden change in the prospect is chargeable wholly on the British Ministry, and if they prove inflexible, which I hope will not happen, in declining a diplomatic settlement, nothing more can be required of the Executive than that the proper means be used in the proper manner for obtaining satisfaction, all which I trust will endure. A voluntary abandonment of this claim is equally foreign to policy and to duty. At the same time it does not follow that the payment of one claim ought to be so coupled with a distinct & more important one, that the latter cannot go into effect without the former. When in the adjustment of separate objects one of them be most desirable to one of the parties, & the other to the other of the parties, the adjustment of both may be made a condition of that of either. But when both the objects are more desirable to one than to the other of the parties, nothing better can be done than to secure the object that can be attained and to pursue the other by the means most proper & likely to attain that also. I anxiously wish that our next information from Mr. King may supersede those reflections, and be satisfactory to all who have an interest in complete success of these negotiations.I thank you for your kind wishes for my health. It experienced a short, but pretty severe interruption lately but I find myself as well as before the attack. I wish you sincerely the enjoyment of yours without interruption... $6,000 - $8,000

Heathrow, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £2,000 - £3,000

Description: THOMAS DYLAN: (1914-1953) Welsh Poet. Rare D.S., with his full signature, Dylan Marlais Thomas, three pages, 8vo, n.p. (Swansea?), n.d. (c.1936). The partially printed document, almost entirely completed by Thomas, is a questionnaire issued by the publishers J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd. for use in publicising Twenty-Five Poems (1936). Thomas provides details of his address in Uplands, Swansea, place and date of birth, and lists his only previously published work '"18 Poems", Parton Press, 1934'. Thomas advises that the new work may arouse special interest in 'South Wales, especially Swansea and Carmarthen' and in answering a question about biographical information writes 'Live outside London as much as possible, like living in Wales most. Am interested in short-story writing; at the moment am writing a reversed Pilgrim's Progress, the journey of Anti-Christian from Zion to Destruction. I try to lead conventional lives'. In further responding to a request for further information Thomas states 'Have contributed a great number of poems & stories to periodicals including the Criterion, New Verse, New Stories, the Listener, the New English Weekly, Adelphi, Life & Letters To-Day. Have reviewed crime books for a London daily for quite a long time' and, finally, the poet remarks 'Need my age be used as an excuse for the book? Wouldn't just "a young man" do?'. An excellent signed document relating to the poet's second published poetry collection. Some neat splitting at the central vertical fold and some minor staple holes to the upper edges and other light, insignificant small stains, not affecting the signature. About VG

Rare A.L.S., Tho: Bath & Wells, as Bishop of Bath & Wells, one page, small 4to, n.p., 14th May 1689, to [Henry Dodwell]. Ken commences his letter 'All Glory be to God' and expresses his surprise at having received a letter from Dodwell, remarking 'You are pleased to accuse me of fluctuating & by yt. meanes of being accessory to very many & great sinnes in others, of scandall & perjury & ye like, and in a very few lines you inculcate ye prevalence of flesh & blood on me, four severall times one after another. I conceive that common kindnesse & equity should have to have sent to me to know whether ye reports you heard of me were true, before you laid so great a load on me'. The Bishop continues 'If there had been ground for them, & I had been falling, you should have endeavoured to restore me with. ye Spirit of meeknesse. If I had actually fallen, I do not apprehend I should have deserved such odious imputations. If I did I must have condemned a great many wise & good & conscientious men who have already complyd, which I dare not doe'. He concludes 'So yt. upon the whole, though I perswaded my selfe your letter was well intended, yett it was so worded, yt. it rather causelessly grieved than convinced me. God of his justice & goodnesse give us grace in this and all other difficultys, to keepe a conscience void of offence'. Some light overall age wear, G
