Roosevelt, Franklin D

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

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

Description: Roosevelt, Franklin D. (1882-1945) 32nd President of the United States (1933-1945). Typed letter signed, 1 page, 10 1/2 x 7 1/2 in., on Franklin D. Roosevelt/Vice President/FIDELITY AND DEPOSIT COMPANY OF MARYLAND/55 Liberty Street, New York City letterhead, New York, September 7, 1928. To Mr. Frank C. Stewart of Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Just prior to becoming the Governor of New York, Roosevelt writes regarding the enforcement of the Volstead Act, prohibition, bootleggers and the possibility of changes after the next Presidential election. In part: "...my statement about the extra-ordinary spectacle of the bootleggers working secretly but actively for the continuation of the Republican administration is based on the fact that these bootleggers find it possible to continue their trade actively and satisfactorily under the present methods used by Washington to enforce the Volstead Law. They are fearful of any change in the present situation which a new administration would probably bring in....they know enough of Governor Smith's methods...to believe that he would really find definite and practical ways to put them out of business, if he should be President...cannot agree with you that the only way to end the occupation of bootlegger is to remove all restrictions on the sale of intoxicating liquor...aside from any question of changing the present law, this law could be enforced far better than is being done...There are thousands of so-called drys in this section of the country who are voting for Governor Smith because they find the present conditions intolerable and do not believe that Mr. Hoover, if elected, would do much tampering with the Republican political machine which goes under the name of the Volstead Law Enforcement Division..." Large strong signature. Light age toning. Two horizontal folds. Very good condition. Estimated Value $2,000 - 3,000

Van Buren, Martin

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $15,000 - $25,000

Description: Van Buren, Martin. (1782-1862) 8th President of the United States (1837-1941). Autograph letter signed ("M. Van Buren") as President, 7 pages, 10 x 8", Apr. 11, 1838. To Major General Winfield Scott with instructions for the forced removal of the Cherokees to beyond the Mississippi. Each leaf is tipped to a larger sheet. Folds are strengthened on verso. Some dampstaining and toning. Letter is bound with a typed transcript in a quarter morocco and buckram case with gilt lettering on spine; staining to cover.The Indian Removal Act was signed into law by Andrew Jackson on May 28, 1830. It authorized the President to grant unsettled lands west of the Mississippi in exchange for Indian lands within existing states. Although a few tribes went peacefully, many tribes resisted, and the Cherokees brought lawsuits. In Worcester v. Georgia, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Cherokee nation was free from the law of individual states, but Jackson, knowing that the Court had no way to enforce its mandate, ignored the Court and continued with his removal plan. The Treaty of New Echota was signed on Dec. 29, 1835, by a minority Cherokee faction without the approval of the Cherokee National Council or the signature of Principal Chief John Ross; nonetheless, the U.S. Senate amended and ratified this treaty in March 1836. The Indians were given two years to leave and in May 1838, forcible removal began.Van Buren's instructions to General Scott read, in part: "If on your arrival in the Cherokee Nation, propositions should be made to you by the party opposed to emigration, the acceptances of which you shall have good reason to prevent the shedding of blood, & secure & expedite the voluntary emigration of the whole nation, you are authorized to receive & transmit them to the Department of War for the consideration of the President & Senate: Provided the said proposition do not, to any degree, impugn the Treaty [of New Echota] with the execution of which you are charged, or materially change any of its provisions, & particularly that which provides for their emigration to the west.... [N]o stipulation shall be entered into that shall effect injuriously & against their will the individual rights of any of the Citizens of the States in which the indians now reside, & which are secured to such Citizens by the laws of such States & founded upon the Treaty. For these purposes & to meet the contingency referred to, you are here appointed a Commissioner, & authorized to conclude an arrangement of the nature herein described, with the said indians subject to the approbation or rejection of the President & Senate....In such proceedings, the known Chiefs & their Adherents, of the party heretofore opposed to emigration may, if you find it necessary, be put upon a footing of equality with the other part of the nation, taking care not to sign any stipulation which may injuriously affect the true interests or just pride of the latter. To the ends contemplated by these instructions any reasonable sum of money, not exceeding 300,000 dollars, to be paid by the United States after the execution of the stipulations by the said Indians, may be agreed upon; but the discretionary authority hereby conferred upon you is made subject to the following absolute restriction, viz;; that no proposals are to be received from the Indians until the great body of the Chiefs, Head Men & People of the remaining Cherokees have been distinctly informed, that the said proposals are based upon their certain & speedy removal to their new Homes, that the only object in view is to make that removal more satisfactory to them, & that no delay, in the execution of the Treaty, not really indispensable, is to [be] occasioned by any of the proceedings authorized by these instructions."Federal groups and state militias began removing Indians forcibly from their homes with little but the clothes on their backs, ignoring warnings to treat them kindly. Food and medicine were in short supply and water was scarce and often contaminated. Many died along the way, possibly as many as one fifth of the Cherokee Nation. The last Indians arrived in the west on March 24, 1839, following what could truly be called a Trail of Tears. The $300,000 mentioned in Van Buren's letter was apparently not used by General Scott to aid the Indians' removal and $5 million, which was promised to the Cherokees in the Treaty of New Echota, was never paid. Estimated Value $15,000 - 25,000 Frank T. Siebert Library Collection Part II - Sotheby's New York, Oct 28, 1999, lot 639.

Jackson, Andrew

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

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

Description: Jackson, Andrew. Autograph letter signed as President, 1 page, 10 x 8 in., Washington, Feb. 25, 1833. Holograph integral address leaf with free frank ("Free Andrew Jackson"). Dampstain to upper third of letter and almost half of address leaf (including "Jackson") do not affect legibility. One week before his second presidential inauguration, Jackson writes to Colonel George Martin, who had been his private secretary in the Natchez campaign (1812) and whose wife, Lucinda Rucker Donelson, was a niece of Rachel Jackson and sister to Andrew Jackson Donelson, Andrew Jackson's adopted son: "To enable you to be serviceable to the Government & yourself you will receive an agency to locate the Indian reservations, which if you perform well, may enable me to have something better for you hereafter. The instructions of the War Department you must strictly comply with, and prevent imposition both, on the Indians, & the government. This will give you an opportunity to examine the country, whilst your compensation will enable you, a little, to make purchases of a good situation for a permanent home. You will see from the public journals that I have been a good deal perplexed with the nullifiers - and I am sorry to find there are more in alabama than the people are aware of. Look at the vote on the bill to enforce the revenue laws - all who voted against this law are nullifiers at heart. I expect Andrew [Jackson's adopted son--son of Rachel's brother Severn Donelson] & Sarah [Andrew's wife] with my dear little Rachel tomorrow...."Jackson appointed Martin locating agent under the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek, a position Martin held throughout Jackson's administration and into Van Buren's, as long as needed. In 1830, at Jackson's behest, Congress passed the Indian Removal Act, and Jackson signed it into law. The Act authorized the President to negotiate treaties to buy tribal lands in the east in exchange for lands further west, outside of existing U.S. state borders. The treaty was enforced by Jackson's successor, Van Buren. [See Van Buren's 1838 letter to General Winfield Scott in this sale, giving instructions on removing the Indians to land west of the Mississippi.]The nullifiers, primarily Southerners led by Jackson's former Vice President John C. Calhoun, were angered by Jackson's refusal to greatly lower tariff rates on imports. They believed that each state retained the final authority to declare federal laws unconstitutional--that each state, acting through a convention, could pronounce a federal law null and void within its limits while remaining in the Union. In November 1832, South Carolina's legislature approved an Ordnance of Nullification, declaring the tarifs of 1828 and 1832 unconstitutional and unenforceable in South Carolina. Jackson called the proclamation "incompatible with the existence of the Union" and asked Congress to pass a Force Bill which would allow him to use state militias and federal forces against the dissidents if necessary. The situation was tense until the Compromise Tariff of 1833 temporarily defused the situation, pushing the reckoning on sectional strife to a later date. Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,500 Christie's New York, Dec 18, 2003, lot 278, $3,500.

Washington, George. Autograph letter signed.

by Profiles in History

June 11, 2015, 11:00 AM PST

Calabasas, CA, USA

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

Description: 147. Washington, George. Autograph letter signed (“Go Washington”), 2 pages (7.4 x 8.8 in.; 188 x 224 mm.), front and back, “Mount Vernon”, 27 March 1798, to “James McHenry Esqr.”, who was serving as Secretary of War (1796-1800) under President John Adams. Minor toning on single margin; archival reinforcement on overleaf hinge. With the new nation on the brink of war with France, former President George Washington informs the Secretary of War of a treasonable plot - soon to be known as the XYZ Affair.“...if founded, what punishment can be too great for the Actors in so diabolical a Drama. The period is big with events...It has always been my belief that Providence has not led us so in the path of Independence of one Nation to throw us into the arms of another.”Washington writes in full: Dear Sir, Your favour of – came safe, and in due time, for the information contained in it, I thank you; your request was immediately complied with, as every one of a similar nature shall be. A Report is circulated in Alexandria and its vicinity, transmitted (it is said) in private letters from Philadelphia, that a correspondence has been discovered, or more properly, letters have been intercepted from some M rs. of C g s to the D ct y of F , of a treasonable nature - Containing, among other matters, advice not to receive our Envoys; on the contrary, to menace us with hostile appearances, and they might rely upon bringing the U. States to her terms. The name of one person has been mentioned to me. Cruel must these Reports be if unfounded; - and if founded, what punishment can be too great for the Actors in so diabolical a Drama. The period is big with events, but what it will produce is beyond the reach of humankind. On this, and upon all other occasions, I hope the best. It has always been my belief that Providence has not led us so in the path of Independence of one Nation to throw us into the arms of another. And that the machinations of those who are attempting it, will, sooner of later, recoil upon their own heads. Heaven grant it may happen soon, upon all those whose conduct deserve it. With truth I am always Yours Go WashingtonAfter his Presidency, George Washington, maintaining a keen interest in the course of the country, kept up a regular correspondence with Secretary of War James McHenry, who briefed him on affairs of state. In this extraordinary letter, Washington informs McHenry that he has learned the identity of one participant in a treasonable plot - the infamous “XYZ Affair” - not yet fully exposed to the public. According to Washington's understanding of the plot, members of Congress advised the Directory of France not to receive the United States' envoys and to maintain a “hostile appearance” - so that the United States would accede to France's terms. Relations with France at the time of this letter were already badly strained. One year earlier, on 15 May 1797, a special session of Congress had been called, but before it could be assembled, the news arrived that the French Directory had declared all Americans serving on British vessels to be pirates. On 16 May, President John Adams delivered his first war message (of seven) to Congress, but did not ask for a formal declaration of war. Instead, he recommended the arming of merchant vessels, the enlargement of the naval force, and the reorganization of the militia. Two weeks later (31 May), he appointed commissioners to secure a treaty of commerce and amity with France. By March of 1798, it was clear that the mission to France was a failure. On 19 March, President Adams reiterated the recommendations he had made in his earlier war message, and issued an executive order that authorized the arming of merchant vessels. Meanwhile, the Republicans hoped to embarrass the administration by calling for the publication of dispatches from the commission to France to the House of Representatives - the same correspondence Washington describes in his letter to McHenry. Though the Republicans reversed their position once they read the correspondence, the dispatches were printed and distributed (3 April 1798). In this famous “XYZ Affair,” it was revealed that three unofficial agents of the French foreign minister, Tallyrand - identified as X, Y, and Z - had asked for a sizable “loan” to France, a $250,000 “gratuity” for Tallyrand, and an apology for the President’s 16 May 1797 address. The American nation was poised for war. Without officially declaring war, however, Congress declared the treaties with France null and void, increased the army, ordered the construction or purchase of new ships, and created a navy department. On 28 May 1798, Congress authorized Adams to order the commanders of American naval warships to seize any French armed ships interfering with American commercial shipping. Congress also authorized Adams to raise a 10,000 man volunteer army for a period of three years. On 13 June 1798, Congress passed legislation suspending commerce with France and her dependencies. As well, President Adams signed four acts that came to be known as the Alien and Sedition Acts: the period of residence for full citizenship was lengthened from 5 to 14 years (18 June); all aliens regarded as dangerous to public peace and safety could be deported (25 June); enemy aliens in a time of war could be arrested, imprisoned, or banished (6 July); and fines and imprisonment were authorized for citizens or aliens who entered into combinations to oppose execution of national laws, foment insurrection, or to write, publish, or utter false or malicious statements about the chief executive, the legislature, or the government (14 July). [Enforcement of the act resulted in the prosecution of 25 and the conviction of 10 Republican editors and printers.] Though Adams had brilliantly master-minded a plan that effectively prevented war with France, and had preserved the neutrality of the United States, it was also the beginning of the end of the Federalist Party. And it spelled the end of his Presidential career. $15,000 - $20,000

Buchanan, James

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $1,000 - $1,500

Description: Buchanan, James. Manuscript quotation signed as Secretary of State, 1 page, Washington, late 1848. Being an excerpt from a letter, meant for publication, that President James K. Polk had Secretary of State Buchanan send to William V. Voorhees, the on-site agent of the United States in California, containing the official statement of policy of the United States government and conveying to the people of California the lofty views of President Polk respecting their condition and prospects. The excerpt reads: "Whilst the other nations of the world are distracted by domestic dissensions, and are involved in a struggle between the privileges of the few and the rights of the many, Heaven has blessed our happy land with a Government which secures equal rights to all our citizens, and has produced Peace, Happiness and Contentment throughout our borders. It has combined Liberty with Order, and all the sacred and indefeasible rights of the citizens with the strictest observance of law...." Written in brackets after this is "From the letter of Mr. Buchanan, Secretary of State of the U.S. conveying to the people of California the views of President Polk respecting their condition and prospects.--October 7, 1848." The quotation is signed by James Buchanan and a scroll at lower left has "Signature autograph."California became the property of the United States after the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, signed in February 1848 (effective May 30) ended the Mexican-American War (1846-48). After Mexican authority lapsed, the U.S. government did not step immediately into the breach and Californians were concerned about their status. On August 14, 1848, President Polk signed "An act to establish certain postal routes" and "to make arrangements for the establishment of post offices and for the transmission, receipt and conveyance of letters in Oregon and California." William V. Voorhees was named the U.S. agent for this purposeWith the discovery of gold on the American River near Sacramento on January 24, 1848, came a huge increase in population and a pressing need for civil government. The Gold Rush hastened California's entry into the Union as the 31st state on 9 September 1850.The body of this manuscript was written for Buchanan by Adam J. Glossbrenner, who was Clerk of the State Department during Buchanan's tenure there. Glossbrenner was later Sergeant-at-Arms for the House of Representatives and then Buchanan's private secretary. Estimated Value $1,000 - 1,500 The Arden Family Holdings of Beverly Hills.

McHenry, James

by Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles

June 27, 2015, 10:00 AM PST

Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $10,000 - $12,500

Description: McHenry, James. (1753-1816) American statesman. McHenry was a signer of the U.S. Constitution from Maryland and the namesake of Fort McHenry. He was a delegate to the Continental Congress and Secretary of War (1796-1800), under George Washington and John Adams. Manuscript speech signed ("James McHenry / Secy. of War"), 3 pages, 13 x 8 1/8 in., "War department" [Philadelphia], Feb. 7, 1799. Titled "Speech of the Secretary of War to George Colbert a Chickasaw Chief," the speech is written in a fine clerical hand on fine wove paper watermarked "G & EP 1794," with blindstamp seal of the United States War Office. Repairs and reinforcement to folds affect legibility of two words of text, else fine.George Colbert was one of several sons of Scots trader James Logan Colbert and his three Chickasaw wives. The sons were important tribal leaders leaders and George, in particular, would prove to be a valuable ally to the Americans during the War of 1812. In 1799, Chief Colbert traveled to Philadelphia from his home near Tupelo, Mississippi, for an audience with President Adams. McHenry writes to Colbert responding to questions the chief had raised regarding certain expenses and government reimbursement for the visit. McHenry explains that "when any Indian Chief or great Warrior comes on business from his nation to the seat of Government, at the desire of the Superintendant of Indian Affairs or person having power to authorize the Journey, it has always been the practice to bear the expences of the said Chief or Warrior to and from the seat of Government, at the same time it is understood that no expence is to be incurred, by the public, should he stop upon the road, to settle any private business...."McHenry mentions fifty dollars which was given to Colbert "to be disposed of at your pleasure" and which could have been used for private business, as well as another fifty dollars which "the President sent you...in gold coin of the United States....if you have not yet received it, get it upon applying to the Commandant of the Garrison."Addressing a perceived slight to Colbert's wife, McHenry writes, "Colonel Mentges has been directed to procure certain articles of dress for your wife and a piece of callico....I hope what she will receive will remove all cause of Jealousy from her mind. You may assure her that the President has been well pleased to see her at the seat of Government." He continues, " It is out of my power to do any thing for your brother. This claim against Chisolm must be settled by the Courts of law. It cannot be admitted by the accounting officers and paid by the public....It is also not in my power to allow any thing whatever to your Brother for his Negro, which he represents to have been killed by the Creeks. The Congress have made no provision to meet such cases, or to compensate the people of the respective red nations for losses, they may sustain by depredations from each other."McHenry explains that no alteration has been made to the annual sum of three thousand dollars which was promised to Colbert's people, but it was possible that "more goods may have been delivered in one year, than in another, because more goods will be obtained for the same money at one time than another....The establishment of the post at the Chickasw Bluff cannot fail to be beneficial to the Chickasaws. This is explained in the talk to the Wolfs friend. But it will be further useful as affording a market for many little articles which your people can raise, and which will readily be bought up by the Garrison. It certainly was never meant to give the nation any expectations that the annuity would be increased." McHenry will fix with the Commandant of the Garrison at the Bluff a precise day for the distribution of the annuity and the Chickasaws will be notified beforehand "to prevent complaints & any unnecessary delay...."In closing, McHenry assures Colbert, "It is by no means the intention of the President to countenance any intrusions on the land belonging to your nation. Should any such be made, measures will be taken, as soon as the fact is known, to turn off the intruders."Reference: Not recorded in The Papers of the War Department 1784 to 1800. Estimated Value $10,000 - 12,500 Frank T. Siebert, Sotheby's, Oct. 28, 1999, lot 602.
