Confederate manuscript archive of Lieutenant J. S. Harrison, comprising 17 autographed letters signed, 13 of which are war-time and from Harrison to his wife for the Summer of 1861 to the Summer of 1864.

The early letters of the Harrison archive give insight into the first campaigns of the Confederate army in Kentucky, where Harrison participated in the campaigns of General Zollicoffer and the Battle of Mill Springs (January 19, 1862). Five of the seven letters dated Fall 1861 to Spring 1862 are written from the Camp at Mill Spring. Preceding the battle, in a 4 page letter dated December 12, 1861, Harrison’s tone is quite optimistic as he writes: “I can’t say what will be the next move as the Lincoln army is only twelve miles from our army, we are strongly entrenched and fortified ready for an attack and some are hourly expecting it, but as for myself I do not think they will attack us at all at this point as they have already shown cowardice on several occasions.” Harrison goes on to report the capture of fifteen prisoners the Sunday prior, including a Major and Captain, and that he, as a practiced surgeon, is charged with the task of tending their wounds. Similarly, in a letter dated January 1, 1862, he reports of a skirmish with “The Lincolnites,” as he often refers to the Union army, where his Battalion was victorious, escaping unharmed. The tenor of Harrison’s letters changes after the Battle of Mill Spring, perhaps transformed by military defeat, as he suggests a desire to leave battle. In a letter dated March 15, 1862, from Decater, Alabama, Harrison writes: “I am not satisfied with the way things have been conducted in the Southern Confederacy in a good many instances, and we can never gain anything with such men at the head of affairs as we have at this time. Therefore I for one will quit when my time is out if the Federals will let me and if they won’t I’ll do the best I can.” Creases from folds on each letter; tears at the folds to many, some detached; some soiling and spotting; various sizes. $1,000-2,000 Reference: Hancock, Richard R.

(MISSOURI) BETHEL BAPTIST CHURCH

Highly important manuscript minute book from the first Permanent Church Organization in Missouri and the first non-Catholic Church West of the Mississippi. 91pp, many both sides, housed in plain cloth-backed album with each sheet housed in old protective sleeves, entirely in manuscript in several hands. Bethel Baptist Church was founded on July 7, 1806 outside Jackson, Missouri in Cape Girardeau County by David Green and met in a small log structure on the land of Thomas Bull, one of the first Baptists in the area. A sizeable meeting house was built in 1812 and the congregation began establishing relationships, or “arms,” with other area churches. This historic archive contains the original constitution, membership list, minutes of monthly church meetings from August 1806 to September 11, 1852, birth, death and baptism records, and rules of decorum. The register of founding members includes 15 names. Slaves are listed either by first names only, such as “Dick as man of Robert Green, Judge of the Court,” baptized June 18, 1813, or just as “two Ethiopians the property of [Al]bert Buckner,” in minutes to follow. Under Spanish rule, the territories west of the Mississippi in the eighteenth-century were officially Catholic and, although a number of Protestants had settled in the districts of St. Louis, St. Charles, and Cape Girardeau, Protestant services and baptisms were illegal. The Louisiana Purchase brought religious freedom to non-Catholics and roused Protestants to a missionary enthusiasm. The constitution of Bethel Baptist Church, which is held under tape and only partially legible, states: “We the members of the Baptist [Ch]urch having been a long time destitute … being in any Church order … [o]ur duty to embody our[selves] … [fe]ar of God as a church, hoping that God will bless us in so good an undertaking with the teaching of his holy spirit and enable us through grace to live to the declarative glory of Him, and the praise of his Gospel.” At its peak in 1813, the Bethel Church had 143 members, 43 members of nine daughter churches and had established the Bethel Association. However, between 1830 and 1850, a schism occurred between the Bethel Association, which was anti-missionary, and the other pro-missionary churches in and around Cape Girardeau County, and the church withdrew fellowship from a number of members and cut ties with smaller “arms” churches, such as Hebron Church. The minutes reflect this growing isolation with very abrupt entries. According to the Missouri Baptist Historical Commission, the building was dismantled during the Civil War and the records of the church cease completely in 1867. In Summer 2009, the Missouri Baptist Historical Commission completed a $200,000 restoration project on the site of the Old Bethel Baptist Church using logs from the original structure. Various partial copies of the minutes exist in institutional collections. Fragile condition; all pages with significant wear and many illegible; large portions of pages missing; many portions of text have been preserved on the protective sheets; should be seen. $6,000-8,000

Guide for Prospective Sellers Evaluation of Property If you have property you wish to sell, please call our Consignment Department at 312.280.1212 to arrange for a consultation. At that time, you may make an appointment to bring your property or photographs, along with any other pertinent information, to Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. and we will be happy to provide you with complimentary estimates and advice. If you have a large collection, an appointment may be made to evaluate the property on-site. Fees for on-site visits may vary. Standard Commission Rates Our standard rate of commission is equal to ten percent (10%) of the hammer price on each lot sold for $5,001 or more; fifteen percent (15%) of the hammer price on each lot sold for $2,001 or more but less than $5,001; and twenty-five percent (25%) of the hammer price on each lot sold for $2000 and less with a minimum commission of $25 per lot sold. If your property fails to reach the reserve price agreed upon between you and Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc., you may be obligated to pay a reduced commission rate of five percent (5%) of the reserve price. Shipping Arrangements Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. can advise you as to how to have your property delivered to our galleries. Packing, shipping and insurance are payable by the seller. In certain instances, packing and shipping costs may be paid by Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. and deducted from the proceeds of the sale. We may recommend packers and shippers, but we are not responsible for their acts or omissions.

Guide for Prospective Buyers Conditions of Sale Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. encourages all prospective buyers to read the Conditions of Sale printed in this catalogue. Exhibitions Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. recommends that all prospective buyers attend the pre-sale exhibition prior to the auction. Staff members are available at our pre-sale exhibitions to advise prospective buyers on particular objects or on any aspect of the bidding process. Estimates Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. provides catalogue descriptions and pre-auction estimates for each lot included in the sale. These estimates are a guide for prospective bidders. They are not definitive. All pre-sale estimates are subject to revision. Condition Reports We are happy to provide a condition report for lots with a low estimate of $300 and above. Nevertheless, intending buyers are reminded that condition reports are statements of our opinion only, and that each lot is sold “AS IS,” per our Conditions of Sale, as outlined in the back of this catalogue. All lots should be viewed personally by prospective buyers or their agents to evaluate the condition of the property offered for sale due to the highly subjective nature of condition reports. Bidding at Auction The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. In addition to the hammer price, the buyer agrees to pay Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. a buyer’s premium as well as any applicable taxes.

Bidding generally opens at half the low estimate and advances in the following order, although the auctioneer may vary the bidding increments during the course of the auction. The normal bidding increments are: $0-$200 $200-$500 $500-$1,000 $1,000-$2,000 $2,000-$5,000 $5,000-$10,000 $10,000-$20,000 $20,000-$50,000 $50,000-$100,000 $100,000-$200,000 Over $200,000

Conditions of Sale LESLIE HINDMAN AUCTIONEERS, INC. AS AGENT The lots listed in this catalogue will be offered by Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. as owner or as agent for consignor(s) subject to the following terms and conditions. By bidding at auction you agree to be bound by these Conditions of Sale.

BEFORE THE SALE Prospective buyers are strongly advised to personally examine any property in which they are interested before the auction takes place. Condition reports are usually available on request, on lots with a low estimate of $300 and above. All lots are sold “AS IS” and without recourse and neither Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. nor its consignor(s) makes any warranties or representations, express or implied with respect to such lots. Neither Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. nor its consignor(s) makes any express or implied warranty or representation of any kind or nature with respect to merchantability, fitness for purpose, correctness of the catalogue or other description of the physical condition, size, quality, rarity, importance, medium, material, genuineness, attribution, provenance, period, culture, source, origin, exhibitions, literature or historical significance of any lot sold. The absence of any reference to the condition of a lot does not imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of aging. No statement, whether written or oral, and whether made in the catalogue, or in supplements to the catalogue, an advertisement, a bill of sale, a salesroom posting or announcement, the remarks of an auctioneer, or otherwise, shall be deemed to create any warranty, representation or assumption of liability. Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. and its consignor(s) make no warranty or representation, express or implied, that the purchaser will acquire any copyright or reproduction rights to any lot sold. Leslie Hindman Auctioneers Inc. expressly reserves the right to reproduce any image of the lots sold in the catalogue.

AT THE SALE Refusal of Admission Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. has the right, at our complete discretion, to refuse admission to the premises or participation in any auction and to reject any bid. Registration before Bidding A prospective buyer must complete and sign a registration form and provide identification before bidding. We may require bank or other financial references. Bidding as Principal When making a bid, a bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the purchase price, including the buyer’s premium, all applicable taxes and all other applicable charges, unless it has been explicitly agreed upon in writing with Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. before the commencement of the sale that the bidder is acting as agent on behalf of an identified third party acceptable to Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc., and that Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. will only look to the principal for payment. Absentee Bids We will use reasonable efforts to carry out written bids given to us at least 24 hours prior to the sale for the convenience of clients who are not present at the auction in person, by an agent or by telephone. Bids must be placed in U.S. dollars. If we receive written bids on a particular lot for identical amounts, and these are the highest bids on the lot at the auction, it will be sold to the person whose written bid was received and accepted first. Execution of written bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale and we do not accept liability for failing to execute a written bid or for errors and omissions in connection with the written bid. Telephone Bids On lots with a low estimate of $300 and above and if a prospective buyer makes arrangements with us prior to the commencement of the sale we will use reasonable efforts to contact them to enable them to participate in the bidding by telephone and we do not accept liability for failure to do so or for errors and omissions in connection with telephone bidding.

Online Bids We will use reasonable efforts to carry out online bids and do not accept liability for equipment failure, inability to access the Internet or software malfunctions related to the execution of online bids. Reserves Some lots in the sale are subject to a reserve which is the confidential minimum price below which such lot will not be sold. The reserve will not exceed the low estimate of the lot. Reserves are agreed upon with consignors or, in the absence thereof, the absolute discretion of Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. The auctioneer may open the bidding on any lot below the reserve by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may continue to bid on behalf of the seller up to the amount of the reserve, either by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. With respect to lots that are offered without reserve, unless there are already competing bids, the auctioneer, in his or her discretion, will generally open the bidding at half of the low estimate for the lot. In the absence of a bid at that level, the auctioneer may proceed backwards at his or her discretion until a bid is recognized, and then continue up from that amount. Auctioneer’s Discretion The auctioneer has the right at his or her absolute and sole discretion to refuse any bid, to advance the bidding in such a manner as he or she may decide, to withdraw any lot, and in the case of error or dispute, and whether during or after the sale, to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer and resell the item in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, our sale record is conclusive. Successful Bid The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. In the case of a tie bid, the winning bidder will determined by the auctioneer at his or her sole discretion. In the event of a dispute between bidders, the auctioneer has final discretion to determine the successful bidder or to reoffer the lot in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, the Leslie Hindman Auctioneers, Inc. sale record shall be conclusive. Title passes upon the fall of the auctioneer’s hammer to the highest acknowledged bidder subject to the Conditions of Sale set forth herein, and the bidder assumes full risk and responsibility.
