Timothy Cooley, Oliver Parsons and James Cooley, Committee [for an unnamed School], acknowledging their request from books from his library, (Softness to paper, and old mildew, fold weakness and separations to right fold with some staining near top and minor losses along central horizontal fold). Text in full: Gentlemen, I am honoured with your letter of the 9th January 1823. It would give me great pleasure to send you any books for the use of your Classical School, but I have already given my library to a Classical School in Quincy excepting a very few which are a necessity of Life to me. I send you the second and third volumes of my Defence, of the first volume I have but one copy. Of the Discourses on Davila I have but one copy, which I call the fourth volume of my Defence. How these four volumes will be considered by Posterity, I know not. They were written with great sincerity and great anxiety unpolished as they are, that must remain for I can never correct or revise them. With my sincere wished for the increase of your library, and the prosperity of your Society and with a duplicate of the second and third volumes - I have the honor to be very respectfully your most obedient Servent, John Adams. $8,000-12,000

2. Adams, John Quincy (1767-1848), Autograph letter signed, April 19, 1819, one page, as Secretary of State, to James Riley, Esq. of New York, thanking him for his letter, and for copies of his (Riley’s) narrative and about the loss of the Oswego, (folds, mat burn around text, pinhole folder separation to center fold [not affecting text], some light edge chipping, overall toning, minor offset, and two tape strips at upper edge). Text in full: Sir, I have received your very obliging Letter, accompanied by a copy of the new Edition of your Narrative, with that of the loss of the Oswego, for which I pray you to accept my thanks. These works are valuable, not only by the interesting sympathies which they excite, but by the lessons of fortitude in sufferance, of persevering energy in action, and of reliance upon the superintending care of Providence in emergencies apparent by the most desperate, which they teach. I am with much Respect, Sir, your very humble and obedt. Servt. Note: Adams is referring to Riley’s autobiographical book, An Authentic Narrative of the Loss of the American Brig Commerce..., first published in 1817. This work described his ship’s wreck off the coast of the Western Sahara, and his and his crew’s subsequent hardships in their trek across the Sahara including capture and slavery by native peoples. Riley became an outspoken voice against slavery, and his work was known to have been read by many politicians, including Adams, and Abraham Lincoln. The other book Adams references in this letter is likely Judah Paddock’s A Narrative of the Shipwreck of the Ship Oswego... and of the sufferings of the Master and the Crew while in bondage among the Arabs, first published in 1818. $2,000-3,000

10. (Boston, Cocoanut Fire), City of Boston license to be a common victualler issued to New Cocoanut Grove Inc., issued the first day of January, 1937, until December 31, 1937, listing Benjamin Welansky as President, with the address of “17 Piedmont Street and rear entrance from Shawmut Street, for stock only, first floor,” numbered 934, one page, (with folds, edge chipping and light charring to edges), sold together with fragments of other licenses, including a “Permit to Sell, Expose for Sale or Deliver Ice Cream and/or Sherbet,” numbered 1863, issued by the City of Boston Health Department on May 3, 1940, through April 30, 1941, and the fragment of another numbered 430, and issued on April 22, 1941, with two very small fragments, one from the Bureau of Milk Inspection, (all with smoke staining and edge chipping). Note: On November 28th, 1942, The Cocoanut Grove, one of Boston’s most popular nightclubs, had somewhere close to 1000 people enjoying its exotic “Casablanca”-style decor, and live music, (although the facility’s official capacity was half that). Formerly a city speak easy, the club had grown in size over the years, incorporating sections of real estate along Piedmont and Church streets, with dark corners, and a cozy back bar for secluded assignations. When fire broke out in that bar area, the fate of 492 souls was sealed within a matter of moments. Due to the nature of the building--including obscured or locked exits, lack of exit signage, low lighting, and narrow passageways--the fire, heat, and fumes overtook patrons with hideous speed. Benjamin “Barney” Welansky, the club’s owner, who claimed organized crime connections, and had friendships with several crooked city officials during a time when Boston politics was rife with graft, had kept the club operating despite numerous safety violations. After the horrific fire, Welansky was convicted on nineteen counts of manslaughter, and sentenced to twelve to fifteen years in prison.

This tragedy is one that will never be forgotten by the City of Boston, and, by extension, the rest of the United States. Because of this disaster, new fire laws were put into place that exist and protect us to this day, including the use of non-flammable materials, sprinklers, proper exit signage and emergency lighting, and standardized, functioning doors. All these things we now take for granted, but would have saved hundreds lives the night of November 28, 1942. $800-1,200 11. (Buchanan, James, 1791-1868) and Glossbrenner, Adam John (1810-1889), Interesting archive of correspondence related to the career of Adam John Glossbrenner, comprising: Buchanan, James, two autograph letters, 1858 and 1861, concerning books and an invitation, two signed documents, 1860, each concerning a nomination for postmaster and a confirmation of Glossbrenner as his personal secretary, and six free franked envelopes; two signed letters from Schuyler Colfax; Cameron, Simon, an autograph letter signed, 1867, concerning a recommendation, and two signed letters, 1849, concerning stocks and monies; Sickles, Daniel E., autograph letter signed, 1858, concerning a request for funds; approximately thirty documents related to his position as Sergeant-of-Arms for the House of Representatives; including a folio of correspondence related to his position as private secretary to President James Buchanan, 1860; and a quantity of family related paper and ephemera from the mid19th through the early 20th century, (mostly very good condition). $4,000-6,000

Text in full: York Pa. June 30th, 1863. To the Citizens of York. I have abstained from burning the rail-road buildings and car shops in your town, be=cause after examination I am satisfied the safety of the town would be endangered, and acting in the spirit of humanity which has ever characterized my government and its military authorities I do not desire to involve the innocent in the same punishment with the guilty. Had I applied the torch without regard to consequences, I would have pursued a course that could have been fully vindicated as an act of just retaliation for the many author=ized acts of barbarity perpetrated by your own army upon our soil. But we do not war upon women and children, and I trust the treatment you have been met with at the hands of my soldiers will open your eyes to the mon=strous iniquity of the war waged by your government upon the people of the Confederate States, and that you will make an effort to shake off the revolting tyranny under which it is ap=parent to all you are your yourselves growing. J.A. Early Major Genl. C.S.A. Note: On June 28th, 1863, Early and his army had captured Gettysburg and had demanded a ransom in exchange for sparing the town. As the monies were not forthcoming, he moved on and captured York, Pennsylvania, the largest town to fall to the Confederate Army during the course of the Civil War and yet another ransom was demanded and partially paid $ 28,000). However, on this day Robert E. Lee recalled Early and his troops to face the Federals now gathering near Gettysburg for the epic battle to follow. $6,000-8,000

25. (Colonial America, Massachusetts Charter), Important manuscript document, May 3rd, 1637, one page, from the House of Lords and the Commission of Foreign Plantations to the Attorney General of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, ordering him to return the Charter granted to the Colony, “3 May 1637/Their Lo.ps taking into Consideration the Patent Granted to the Governor of New England did this day order that Mr. Attorney Generall be here by prayed and required to call in for the said Patent and present the same to the Board or the Comtee for Forreign Plantations.,” with appropriate docket to reverse, “Mr. Attorney to call for the Charter of New=England,” 11 3/4 x 7 1/2 in., (scattered browning, minor inner fold separations). Note: On three occasions between 1637 and 1639, the call went up from the English Parliament for the revocation of the Massachusetts Bay Charter. As early as 1634, there had been widespread dissatisfaction with the application of the Charter as it was currently constituted, both in the Colonies and in England. A council of eight freeman had consolidated their jurisdiction by voting to grant all legislative, executive, and judicial power to a “Council” of the Governor’s assistants (those same eight men). They then set up town boundaries, created taxes, and elected officers. As a result they became the only colony outside of England to have their own ruling body. While the English judicial branch felt that the Colonists had no right to govern themselves and thus the charter needed to be revoked. $30,000-50,000

33. (Declaration for Taking up Arms, Second Continental Congress), Rare and important broadside, July 6, 1775, two pages, New York: John Holt, [July, 1775], signed in the type by John Hancock and attested to by Charles Thomson, entitled “A Declaration by the Representatives of the United Colonies of North-America, now met in General Congress at Philadelphia, seting [sic] forth Causes and Necessity of their taking up Arms,� detailing the history of the settlement of America, the cooperation during the French and Indian War and the subsequent confusion and unpredictability of the English government, detailing a checklist of offenses perpetrated and lambasting the attempts (ignored) to address such grievances, and later detailing the most current and egregious behavior by General Gage at Lexington, Concord and Charlestown, Massachusetts, folio, (triangular loss at center lower margin not affecting text, scattered minor spotting, professional fold strengthening on reverse at upper center fold and center left). Note: In this stirring and powerful broadside, prescient to the Declaration of Independence which was ordered almost exactly one year later, the Second Continental Congress details its right to assemble and take up arms. As the colonial governors sought to prevent such assemblies, the current Congress was certainly extra-legal and could have been be viewed as revolutionary. While Independence was on the minds of the current members of the Second Continental Congress they were, as is evident in the last paragraph, willing to suspend their actions if action was taken. Thomas Jefferson drafted the original language for this broadside but it was deemed too incendiary and the final draft was written by John Dickinson and adopted on July 6, in time for the newly appointed General George Washington to have it in hand upon his arrival in Boston. $40,000-60,000

34. Rare and Historically Important Contemporary Broadside Printing of the Declaration of Independence, likely [Exeter, New Hampshire: Robert Luist Fowle, July, 1776], State b, two-column format, lacking imprint, sheet size approx. 19 5/8 x 15 1/8 in., 500 x 380 mm. Sotheby’s Checklist 12; Walsh 15; Bristol B4408; with the final three lines reset, including correction to “Hancock.� Provenance: Descended in a New Hampshire family, whose relative, a judge, likely received this document in his official capacity. The water stain occurred in connection to a fire. Thankfully, this rare and important document was saved for posterity. These early broadside printings of the Declaration, arguably one of the most famous documents ever conceived, represent the spark that finally ignited the smoldering powder keg of colonial resentment and desire for independence that led to the Revolutionary War. There are few documents still in existence that so summarily changed the course of modern history. Due to the transient nature of paper, and the heavy handling these broadsides would have received, according to the most recent data, there are believed to be fewer than 103 of any date still known to exist. This lot is only the sixth known of this printing in either state. $300,000-500,000

The most important military action that has happened since the unhappy affair of Concord was that of Charlestown.

At two they embarked and were soon landed at a small point just below Winnisimet Ferry. After landing a small party proceeded over the hill and set fire tot the town and the rest divided into three grand columns marched with a slow though determined pace toward our entrenchments.

Our Countrymen before they retreated behaved with bravery and afforded a full demonstration to administration that they would fight and fight desperately. They maintained their ground as long as it was tenable and had they been properly reinforced they would have drove back the King’s troops with amazing slaughter and maintained it to this day.

The Western horizon in the day was one huge body of smoke and in the Evening a confirmed blaze and the perpetual sound of Cannon and vollies of muskets worked our disturbed imaginations to an high degree of fright. The unhappy fate of Charlestown diffused melancholy over every countenance and caused the tears of compassion to flow from every eye.
