1782 EDMOND CITIZEN GENET Autograph Letter Signed To U.S. Rep. Henry Laurens

Lot 33: 1782 EDMOND CITIZEN GENET Autograph Letter Signed To U.S. Rep. Henry Laurens

by Early American

April 25, 2015, 9:00 AM PST

Rancho Santa Fe, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $1,200 - $1,500

Description: Autographs1782 Edmond-Charles Genet "Citizen Genet" Writes To Representative Henry Laurens at Calais During Peace TalksEDMOND-CHARLES GENET, "CITIZEN GENET" (1763-1834). 1782 French Chief of Foreign Affairs, who is best known as the Rabble-rousing First French Minister to the United States, 1793 and the "Citizen Genêt Affair."February 14, 1782-Dated, Autograph Letter Signed, "Genet" as "Chief of Foreign Affairs". Edmond Genet was the scion of pre-Revolutionary French gentry. After an aristocratic upbringing and education, in 1781 Genet followed his father into the French Foreign Ministry at the extraordinary young age of 19. In November 1782, Henry Laurens received instructions from Congress to join Benjamin Franklin, John Jay, and John Adams in Paris to negotiate a Peace Treaty with the British, officially ending the American Revolutionary War.This original Letter is dated in 1782, being boldly written deep rich brown ink, completely in French, Signed "Genet." In this letter Genet has written to Henry Laurens, stating that he has just received a letter, which was just received, and that he (Genet) did not know that Laurens had already left. Also, that he has sent along a package under the care of Mr. Desridellier... "I will write to you at Calais with the attachment - Genet" while as Chief of Bureau of Foreign Affairs. It is an impressive looking, vivid and historic double paged letter, in overall choice quality, measuring 6" x 9" and appears to be docketed in the hand of Henry Laurens. The addressed outer panel has been removed from blank reverse second page outer leaf, not affecting the context or pages of this letter. It reads (to our best ability to translate French), in full:"Monsieur - I have just received the letter you did me the honor to write the 10th this month and I hasten to let you know that not having been informed at all of your early departure I have sent ... under the care of my friend Mr. Moux ... the package that you await from Mr. Buidgou. I shall write to Mr. Henry Laurens at Mr. Pierre Userwood Calias. Mr. Le Moux is to ask your address at Calais and I shall be at the ... of my ... if you ... and ... to give you the evidence attachment respectful with which I have the Honor - Sir - Your very humble and very obedient servant - Genet - Head Office of Foreign Affairs - 1782"Henry Laurens succeeded John Hancock as President of the Second Continental Congress (1777-1778). Laurens also ran the largest Slave trading house in North America. In the 1750s alone, his Charleston, South Carolina Slave trading firm oversaw the sale of more than 8,000 Enslaved Africans. He was for a time, the Vice-President of South Carolina and a diplomat.During the Revolutionary War, in 1779 the Continental Congress sent Henry Laurens to negotiate a treaty with the Dutch. He left Philadelphia in August 1780 and was captured by the British off of Newfoundland. Laurens threw his papers overboard, but the British succeeded in fishing out a draft of the treaty. They charged Laurens with high treason and took him to England, where he was confined in the Tower of London from October 1780 until December 1781.Although the fifty six-year-old Laurens was taken seriously ill, the English officials gave him no medical attention. They charged him for all of his upkeep at the tower, even including the salaries of his warders (a common practice at the time). Laurens was placed in solitary confinement and was not allowed writing materials. Even so, he frequently managed to smuggle out letters to the American press. Laurens resisted the efforts of his British friends to bring him to their side, but at the same time he felt neglected by Congress.While in the tower he wrote two petitions to the English authorities that were considered too submissive by some Americans back home, including James Madison, who called for an annulment of Laurens's diplomatic commission.Benjamin Franklin and the British statesman Edmund Burke fought to secure his release, and in December 1781 Laurens was freed in exchange for General Charles Cornwallis, who had surrendered to George Washington at York-town, Virginia.In November 1782 Laurens received instructions from Congress to join Franklin, Jay, and John Adams in Paris to negotiate a Peace treaty with the British. During this period Laurens was also acting as an "unofficial minister" from the United States to England, so he was ultimately not present when the final Peace treaty was signed on September 3, 1783.The "Citizen Genet Affair" began in 1793 when he was dispatched to the United States to promote American support for France's wars with Spain and Britain. Genêt arrived in Charleston, South Carolina on the warship Embuscade on April 8. Instead of traveling to the then-capital of Philadelphia to present himself to U.S. President George Washington for accreditation, Genêt stayed in South Carolina. There he was greeted with enthusiasm by the people of Charleston, who threw a string of parties in his honor.Genet's goals in South Carolina were to recruit and arm American privateers which would join French expeditions against the British. He commissioned four privateering ships in total: the Republicaine, the Anti-George, the Sans-Culotte, and the Citizen Genet. Working with French consul Michel-Ange Mangourit, Genet organized American volunteers to fight Britain's Spanish allies in Florida.After raising a militia, Genêt set sail toward Philadelphia, stopping along the way to marshal support for the French cause and arriving on May 18. He encouraged Democratic-Republican Societies, but President Washington denounced them and they quickly withered away. His actions endangered American neutrality in the war between France and Britain, which Washington had pointedly declared in his Neutrality Proclamation of April 22. When Genet met with Washington, he asked for what amounted to a suspension of American neutrality.When turned down by Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson and informed that his actions were unacceptable, Genet protested. Meanwhile, Genet's privateers were capturing British ships, and his militia was preparing to move against the Spanish. Genet continued to defy the wishes of the United States government, capturing British ships and rearming them as privateers.Washington sent Genet an 8,000-word letter of complaint on Jefferson's and Hamilton's advice - one of the few situations in which the Federalist Alexander Hamilton and the Democratic-Republican Jefferson agreed. Genet replied obstinately.The Jacobins, having taken power in France by January 1794, sent an arrest notice which asked Genet to come back to France. Genet, knowing that he would likely be sent to the guillotine, asked Washington for asylum. It was Hamilton - Genet's fiercest opponent in the cabinet - who convinced Washington to grant him safe haven in the United States.Genet challenged Washington's authority by threatening to appeal to the American people, and the U.S. government demanded (1793) his recall. Before he could go back to France, his party, the Girondists, had fallen, and his return would have meant the guillotine. George Washington therefore refused to allow his extradition. Genet remained in the United States and married the daughter of Governor George Clinton of New York.

This is an important opportunity to acquire an original Revolutionary War, Pennsylvania Council of Safety item, with the signatures of both David Rittenhouse and the Declaration of Independence Signer, George Ross!David Rittenhouse was treasurer of Pennsylvania from 1777 to 1789, and with these skills and the help of George Washington, he became the first director of the United States Mint.[14] On April 2, 1792, the United States Mint opened its doors, but would not produce coins for almost four months. Rittenhouse believed that the design of the coin made the coin a piece of artwork. The first coins were made from flatware that was provided by Washington himself on the morning of July 30, 1792. The coins were hand-struck by Rittenhouse, to test the new equipment, and were given to Washington as a token of appreciation for his contributions to making the United States Mint a reality. The coin design had not been approved by Congress. Coin production on a large scale did not begin until 1793. Rittenhouse resigned from the Mint on June 30, 1795, due to poor health. The 1783 Nova Constellatio coin was first minted in Philadelphia. David Rittenhouse was consulted on the design. In 1871 Congress approved a commemorative coin in his honor.George Ross (May 10, 1730 - July 14, 1779) was a signer of the United States Declaration of Independence as a representative of Pennsylvania.He was born in New Castle, Delaware, and educated at home. He studied law at his brother John's law office, the common practice in those days, and was admitted to the bar in Philadelphia. Initially a Tory, he served as Crown Prosecutor for 12 years and was elected to the provincial legislature in 1768. There his sympathies began to change and he became a strong supporter of the colonial assemblies in their disputes with Parliament.He was a member of the Committee of Safety and was elected to the Continental Congress. He was a colonel in the Pennsylvania militia (1775-1776), and vice-president of the first constitutional convention for Pennsylvania. He resigned from the Continental Congress in 1777 because of poor health, and was appointed to the Pennsylvania Court of Admiralty, in which office he died at age 49.George's sister Gertrude married Thomas Till, the son of William Till, a prominent Sussex County judge and politician; after his death, she married George Read, another signer of the Declaration.[1] George Ross was born May 10, 1730 at New Castle Delaware. He was the oldest son in his family. His dad was an Anglican clergyman who had immigrated from Scotland. The Ross children received a sound classical education at home. He studied law at his half-brother John's Law Practice in Philadelphia.He was the last of the Pennsylvania delegation to affix his signature to the Declaration of Independence. He had been loyal to the King but he soon became disgusted with Tory politics and supported the cause of the Patriots.In 1750, he was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar (member of Pennsylvania) when he was twenty years old and he established his own practice in Lancaster. In 1751, he married Ann Lawler at Lancaster, Pa. He fathered two sons and a daughter. From 1768 to 1776, he was for twelve years Crown Prosecutor (which is attorney general) for Carlisle (Cumberland County), until 1778 when he was elected to the provincial legislature of his state.He was elected to Continental Congress in 1774, 1776, 1777. He was a Colonel in the Continental Army in 1776. In 1776, he undertook negotiations with the northwestern Indians on behalf of his Colony and that year he acted as vice president of the State constitutional convention, so then that led to helping draft a declaration of rights. He was re-elected to the Continental Congress again in January 1777 but resigned that same year because of poor health. He was vice president of the Pennsylvania constitutional convention and was the Judge of the Admiralty Court of Pennsylvania in 1779. In 1778, while he was acting as admiralty judge, a congressional court of appeals overruled his decision in a case involving a dispute between a citizen of Connecticut and the state of Pennsylvania. He refused to acknowledge the authority of the higher court to counter State decisions, which initiated a dispute between manifestation of the states' rights controversy and did not subside until 1809.In 1779 he died in office at the age of 49, and is buried at Christ Church Burial Ground in Philadelphia.

c. 1800, George Washington Memorial Textile

Lot 150: c. 1800, George Washington Memorial Textile

by Early American

April 25, 2015, 9:00 AM PST

Rancho Santa Fe, CA, USA

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

Description: Washington RelatedExceedingly Rare George Washington Memorial Textile As Illustrated In "Threads of History" Number 20 - Page 56c. 1800, George Washington Pictorial Memorial Textile, Printed in Brown upon Cotton Linen, entitled: "SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF THE GREAT & GOOD GEORGE WASHINGTON, FIRST PRESIDENT of the Thirteen United STATES of AMERICA, and Resqectfully Addressed to the People of...," Kerchief, Probably of English Manufacture, Repairs, Very Fine.This important, historic Printed Textile measures approximately 24.5" x 21.5" (sight) being framed within a simple golden-glit wooden frame to an overall of 26.5" x 23.5". Red ink on off-white linen which has evenly aged. Listed on page 56 of "Threads of History - Americana Recorded on Cloth - 1775 to the Present" by Collins, and illustrating the example in the Smithsonian Institution as item number 20. There it describes this textile as being c. 1800 (produced just after Washington's Death in December of 1799), and as, in full:"In the center is a monument to the memory of Washington surrounded by grieving figures, including an officer, probably French; a clergyman; a soldier; Fame; and an Indian. The scroll border contains the names of the original States plus Kentucky. For some reason Vermont, admitted to the Union is 1790, was not included. Inscriptions are eloquent testimonials to Washington's greatness, given by the Minister of the Court of France, Washington's secretary, a poet, M. Brissot de Warville, The Court of Prussia, and eminent members of the British Parliament."This current example has the general appearance of the Smithsonian's specimen illustrated in "Threads." It is carefully laid down on thin backing for display within its frame. The linen has expected light uniform tone with a few trivial scattered deeper tone spots and a number of minor small thins and sewn repairs and restorations with conservation performed over time. This includes some being sewn and/or stitched with others having underlying fabric of similar color for blending and added reinforcement. The result is that this exceedingly rare George Washington Memorial Textile has nice overall eye appeal. A truly rare and important centerpiece worthy of any serious George Washington, historic Textile and/or rare Americana collection. The very first example of this remarkable, historic textile we have offered.Jacques Pierre Brissot (15 January 1754 - 31 October 1793), was born at Chartres, France where his father was an inn-keeper. He received an education, and entered the office of a lawyer at Paris. He married Félicité Dupont (1759-1818), who translated English works, including Oliver Goldsmith and Robert Dodsley. They lived in London, and had three children. His first works, Théorie des lois criminelles (1781) and Bibliothèque philosophique du législateur (1782), dealt with philosophy of law topics, and showed the deep influence of ethical precepts theoretised by Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In the preface of Théorie des lois criminelles, Brissot explains that he submitted an outline of the book to Voltaire and quotes his answer from April 13, 1778.Brissot became known as a writer, and was engaged on the Mercure de France, on the Courrier de l'Europe, and on other papers. Devoted to the cause of humanity, he proposed a plan for the collaboration of all European intellectuals, and started in London a paper, Journal du Lycée de Londres, which was to be the organ of their views. The plan was unsuccessful, and soon after his return to Paris Brissot was placed in the Bastille on the charge of having published a work against the government.He obtained his release after four months, and again devoted himself to pamphleteering, but was forced to retire for a time to London. On this second visit he became acquainted with some of the leading Abolitionists, and founded later in Paris an anti-slavery group Society of the Friends of the Blacks, of which he was president during 1790 and 1791. As an agent of this society he paid a visit to the United States in 1788, and subsequently published in 1791 his Nouveau Voyage dans les États-Unis de l'Amérique septentrionale (3 vols.). Brissot believed that American ideals could help improve French government. At one point he was interested in uprooting his family to America. Thomas Jefferson, ambassador in Paris at the time was familiar enough with him to note, "Warville is returned charmed with our country. He is going to carry his wife and children to settle there." Although for Brissot, such an emigration never happened. The rising ferment of revolution sucked him back into schemes for progress through political journalism that would consequently make him a household name.From the outbreak of the Revolution in 1789, Brissot became one of its most vocal supporters. He edited the Patriote français from 1789 to 1793, and took a prominent part in politics. Famous for his speeches at the Jacobin Club, he was elected a member of the municipality of Paris, then of the Legislative Assembly, and later of the National Convention. Shortly thereafter, Brissot began to align himself with the more right-leaning Girondins who were often viewed as the 'war party.' The Girondins or Brissotins as they were often called, were a group of loosely affiliated individuals, many of whom came from Gironde, rather than an organized party with a clear ideology.Following the arrest of King Louis XVI on charges of corruption, Brissot and the Girondins championed the idea of keeping him under arrest both as hostage and as a bargaining chip, meanwhile the Montagnards argued for his immediate execution. Brissot was undoubtedly against the decision to execute the King for two reasons. He believed that once Louis XVI was executed all of France's foreign negotiating power would be lost and he feared a massive royalist rebellion.Brissot's stance on the King's execution, the war with Austria and his moderate views on the Revolution inevitably led to intense friction between the Girondins and Montagnards. Brissot attempted to rein in the violence and excesses of the Revolution by calling for the reinstatement of the monarchy, a ploy which landed on deaf ears. His party eventually fell to the Montagnards and the decisive blow came when his name appeared on a list of proscribed and a warrant was issued for his arrest on 2 June 1793; Brissot attempted to escape in disguise, but was arrested at Moulins. Brissot was very worried that they were going to kill him, so he fled with others. He was found without a passport, along with many other members of the Girondin. After a trial during which his demeanour was quiet and dignified, Brissot and several other Girondists were guillotined in Paris, his corpse was disposed of in the Madeleine Cemetery.(From Wikipedia)

BEULAH BARNES WEAVER (American, 1879-1957) Ellicott Cit

Lot 68124: BEULAH BARNES WEAVER (American, 1879-1957) Ellicott Cit

by Heritage Auctions

May 2, 2015, 2:00 PM CST

Dallas, TX, USA

Estimated Price: $3,000 - $5,000

Description: BEULAH BARNES WEAVER (American, 1879-1957) Ellicott City, Maryland, 1930 Oil on canvas 25 x 36 inches (63.5 x 91.4 cm) Signed lower right: Beulah Barnes Weaver Dated verso: 1930 PROVENANCE: Private collection, Virginia; Estate of the above. This remarkable painting of the picturesque town of Ellicott City, Maryland, located between Baltimore and Washington, D.C., is the work of Beulah Barnes Weaver, a painter, sculptor and art educator from Washington, D.C. Painted in 1930, the scene of undulating hills, houses and winding red brick streets straddles Modernist and Regionalist idioms in almost perfect balance and harmony. Despite Beulah Barnes Weaver's impressive exhibition history and affiliations with major artists groups in the Washington area throughout the 1920s and 30s, her work is quite scarce and rarely appears at auction. She trained at the Art Students League in New York and the Corcoran Museum School in her hometown, as well as with the Italian Peppino Gino Mangravite who made his career in the United States, and the German emigre Karl Knaths. The present work owes an enormous debt to Mangravite. Biographies of Beulah Weaver do not identify where she encountered him, but it seems probable that she got to know him in Washington during the three-year period (1926-28) he taught art courses at the Potomac School, and was an active part of the Washington art scene. One of the hallmarks of his style from the late 20s and 30s is a highly sculptural treatment of form with elaborate modeling, which characterizes this highly realized work by Weaver. The naturalism is subordinated to the overall structure, imparting an almost surreal quality to the image, notably in the repetition of shapes, and the careful and insistent delineation of every brick in the road. Beulah Weaver was a member of the Society of Washington Artists. Her exhibition history included shows at the Anderson Galleries, New York; Washington Women's Club; Salons of America (1925, 1927-30); Corcoran Gallery biennials (1930, 1932); Independent Artists Exhibition, Washington, D.C. (1935, purchase award); and the Society of Washington Artists (1935, prize; 1948, prize). She worked for three decades as art director and teacher at the Madeira School in Greenway, Virginia.
