        Pay Voucher for Revolutionary War Brigadier General Samuel Holton Putnam

      The Committee], [Connecticut 1780 - Partially printed document. Approximately 7.5" x 7". Deckle edge a bit irregular, else very near fine. Dated 16 August 1780. No place, but Connecticut. The document orders the state of Connecticut to pay Brigadier General Samuel H. Parsons, 984 pounds and change. Signed by Finn Wadsworth and Samuel Lyman for "Committee"; and signed in type by "John Lawrence, Esq; Treasurer." Docketed on the reverse by Zedlmon Read(?). Samuel Holden Parsons was an agitator for independence from England, and wrote to Samuel Adams suggesting a congress of the colonies in 1772. He lead a militia regiment at Bunker Hill, was shortly thereafter made a Brigadier General in the Continental Army and fought the British at Battle Hill on Long Island and later at the Battle of White Plains. He commanded West Point in 1778-79, but left to rejoin his command. Upon the discovery, in September 1780 (a couple of weeks after this voucher was issued), of Benedict Arnold's treacherous scheme to surrender West Point to the British, Parsons served on the board of officers which tried Arnold's accomplice, Major John Andre, and sentenced him to death. In civilian life after the war Parsons was appointed Chief Justice of Ohio. A very attractive document.

        Elegy on Captain Cook. To which is added, An Ode to the Sun

      London: J. Dodsley, 1780. Small quarto, 23 pp., mildly foxed, a good copy in marbled wrappers. 'With piercing shrieks bewail thy Hero's doom!'. Rare: second edition of Seward's famous tribute, published the same year as the first edition, and 'one of the most influential odes on Captain Cook' (Forbes). Numerous footnotes refer to events on the voyages, including mentions of kangaroos, surf, increasing modesty in Tahitian women, New Zealand hemp, the islanders' morais, and so on.There were to be very many editions and anthology appearances of Seward's Ode, showing that this - the first of many literary tributes - was quite a significant monument to the great man. Holmes quotes the Gentleman's Magazine (September, 1780, p. 432): 'With the assistance of the Muses, she has raised a trophy worthy of the memory of one of the greatest men this or any age or nation has produced.'Later critics have not been so generous. Holmes himself states that the modern reader is likely to find '238 lines of rather turgid verse'. Seward's sympathies for Cook's widow, however, are eloquently and poignantly expressed: "Go, wretched Mourner!-weep thy griefs to rest!" (p. 18).Seward (1747-1809), the "Swan of Lichfield," produced so many poetic elegies and odes that it seemed impossible that anyone important could die during her lifetime without being memorialized. In a vein similar to the wag who remarked that Lydia Sigourney, "The Sweet Singer of Hartford," had added "a new terror to death" by her poetic eulogies, Scott remarked that he could not ignore Sewell for fear of "my death being prematurely announced by a sonnet or an elegy" (DNB XVII, p. 1218).

Ownership E.Kensington and note to pastedown that it was given my Mrs Bell in remembrance of her husband. *Madan was a loose-living lawyer when he attended a service by John Wesley, this led to his reform and he became a convert and took holy orders serving as chaplain of a Charity - Lock Hospital. He sympathized with the Lady Huntingdon and George Whitfield faction of Methodism but after 30 years this very controversial work advocating Polygamy - this led to a furore. Madan argues that monogamy can be harmful to women and his descriptions of the suffering of women under monogamy provoked charges of blasphemy. The work was in fact an important argument in the evolution of the legal rights of women for which the author had to resign his living and retire into private life. Scarce and rare first edition of a controversial book.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM RICHARD VARICK TO DIRCK ROMEYN, CONCERNING THE BUSINESS OF THE NEW YORK STATE LEGISLATURE].

      Albany. March 28, 1780. - 3pp., docketed on verso. Folio. Old fold lines. Light soiling. Silked. Good. Letter written by Col. Richard Varick to his friend Rev. Dirck Romeyn, discussing news of the New York State Legislature at Albany. Varick (1753-1831) was studying law at the outbreak of the Revolution and subsequently served in the Continental Army. At this point in his career, Varick's commission as one of General Schuyler's officers had not been renewed and he had just left his father's house in Hackensack where he was pondering the renewal of his law career. He visited Albany to observe the legislature before taking the post of inspector general at West Point. Dick Romeyn (1744-1804), minister of the Reformed Church in Hackensack and later founder of Union College, was staying at the home of Varick's father, where he had just endured a British attack, barely escaping by hiding himself and others in the attic. Varick writes, in part: "As the person I write by is to go off this morning, I shall barely take time to give you a little sketch of the business done by our legislature this session, which will break up to now. Soon after my learning how many of the numbers of the Upper House had got it in their noodles that they had a right & it was exped[ient] to declare Vermont an independent state (as Congress had not obliged on the subject) & to settle a line of jurisdiction between us." The Governor, however, intervened, pointing out that such a resolution was the business of the Congress and if they proceeded he would "prorogue the House. The message was received with a degree of chagrin by some & pleasure by others." Varick also reports that the legislature has passed a law to raise two regiments, among other laws. He closes by informing his friend that he plans "to leave in May. I cannot afford to live here nor can I get land money to defray the enormous expenses of 4 dollars per meal for myself and horse. . I can get books. I shall go to Kingston in May. Of this I have some small hopes yet. I have no idea of remaining in lbany at a monstrous expense. . I hope in five days to write you further. In the mean time let me congratulate you on your escape from the hands of your enemies a few weeks since & for the signal interposition of heaven in disappointing the miscreant wretches in the base designs." Varick went on, later in 1780, to become the chief aide to Benedict Arnold at West Point. As such, he came under considerable suspicion when Arnold's treason was discovered in September, 1780. He was completely exonerated, and went on to be an aide to Washington and a prominent New York politico, including a stint as Mayor of New York which got a street named after him.

First published in 1771, but with an additional 23 new objects observed by Messier since its publication. Most interested in comets, Messier is attributed with the initial discovery of twelve or thirteen from the appearance of Comet 1759 III to Comet 1798 I and three additional independent discoveries. His famous catalogue of objects which retain his M for Messier numbers to this day came about only because "the nebula I discovered above the southern horn of Taurus on September 12, 1758, while observing the comet that year... had such a resemblance to a comet, in its form and brightness, that I endeavoured to find others, so that astronomers would not confuse these same nebulae with comets just beginning to shine" (Messier Connaissance des Temps 1800/1801 recorded in DSB). // Photos available upon request, Livre
