        Supreme Court Justice Livingston Recommends a Danish Son-in-Law of Jacob Astor to John Quincy Adams, on Duty in Russia

      New York 1811 - Autograph Letter Signed, to John Quincy Adams. New York, January 19, 1811. 1 p. Supreme Court Justice Brockholst Livingston recommends "Mr: Bentzon," a Danish official and son-in-law of John Jacob Astor, to John Quincy Adams, Minister to Russia. Docketed by John Quincy Adams. "He is since married into the family of Mr. Astor, one of our first & most respectable merchants, & is going with his Lady to Denmark . as Mr. Bentzon intends visiting Petersburgh he is desirous of doing himself the honor of calling on you ." Complete Transcript New York 19th Jany. 1811 -Sir Mr: Bentzon will have the honor of delivering you this letter. This gentleman is a subject of the King of Denmark, & resided for several years in Santa Cruz where he held an important office under his Sovereign. He is since married into the family of Mr. Astor, one of our first & most respectable merchants, & is going with his Lady to Denmark, in company with Mr. Erving and Minister to that court - as Mr. Bentzon intends visiting Petersburgh he is desirous of doing himself the honor of calling on you. I have therefore taken the liberty of recommending him to your attentions, not doubting that you will find him highly agreeable & intelligent. With great respect I have the honor to be Sir, Your most obed sert Brockholst LivingstonHis ExcyJ.Q. Adams[Address Leaf:] His Excellency - Jno: Quincey Adams - / Minister Plenipotentiary / &ca - Petersburgh - / Hond by - Mr. Bentzon[docket in Adams's hand:] Livingston - Brockholst 14 Jany: 1811 / 9 Augt: 1811. recd:Historical BackgroundWritten a year before the War of 1812, when John Quincy Adams was still Minister to Russia, Justice Livingston's letter recommends one "Mr: Bentzon," who intends visiting the Russian capital, to Adams's attention. The docket, indicating that the letter was received by Adams nearly seven months after Livingston had written it, gives a fascinating glimpse at the slow rate of communication in the early nineteenth century.Interestingly, just months before, President Madison nominated Adams to fill deceased Justice William Cushing's place on the Supreme Court, where he might have served with Livingston. Adams declined the appointment, citing his wife's health, in a letter to Madison of June 3, 1811. To his brother Thomas, however, Adams was more honest: "I am also, and always shall be, too much of a political partisan for a judge." Adams went on to perform sterling service in European diplomacy, helping to negotiate the Treaty of Ghent in late 1814, which ended the War of 1812. This rejuvenated his political prospects at home, where he soon rose to become Secretary of State and President.Perhaps unbeknownst to Livingston, Bentzon was traveling to Russia in large part on behalf of his new father-in-law, America's first millionaire, John Jacob Astor. Bentzon successfully obtained from Tsar Alexander the right for Astor's American Fur Company to trade in Russian territories in North America (Alaska) in exchange for a promise to supply Russian outposts and not to trade with Indians living near Russian settlements. Later, Bentzon was present at the negotiations in Ghent, ending the War of 1812, with John Quincy Adams, suggesting that a working relationship emerged from the meeting Livingston helped arrange.Adrian Bentzon was a citizen of Denmark and, for a time, governor of St. Croix. He married Magdalen Astor in 1807, moved to New York City, and served as John Jacob Astor's emissary in Europe. In particular, Bentzon negotiated an important agreement with Tsar Alexander of Russia. After Adrian and Magdalen's son, John Jacob Bentzon, drowned tragically, she turned to alcohol and he to adultery. They divorced in 1818.Henry Brockholst Livingston (1757-1823) - member of the powerful Livingston family of New York and New Jersey, the future Supreme Court Justice dropped his first name to distinguish himself from other relatives of the same name. He attended the College of N. (See website for full description)

        Autograph Letter, Signed ("Th Jefferson"), to James L. Edwards of Boston, 5 September 1811, refusing the demands of a newspaper publisher

      Monticello, sep. 5 11 [1811] - Jefferson Refuses a Demand "for certain services performed" An interesting Jefferson letter, in which he rebuffs a request for payment of a thousand dollars by the editor of the SAVANNAH REPUBLICAN newspaper. He stridently objects to the payment demand, and seeks to defend his honor and reputation in setting his correspondent straight. Jefferson subscribed to a number of newspapers while he was President, including the SAVANNAH REPUBLICAN. He cancelled almost all of these subscriptions, including that for the REPUBLICAN, when he left office at the beginning of 1809, taking care to pay all his outstanding bills. It appears from this letter that Norman McLean, one-time editor of the REPUBLICAN, promised his successor, James Edwards, that he would pay Edwards money he owed him once he collected $1000 owed McLean by Jefferson. Edwards wrote Jefferson on August 20, 1811, asking for the money that Jefferson owed McLean. In the present letter, Jefferson stridently objects to the request, and insists that his account with McLean is settled. A review of Jefferson's memorandum and account books corroborates Jefferson's claim. McLean was seemingly trying to forestall Edwards's requests for payments by claiming that Jefferson still owed him money, and that he would pay Edwards when he was paid by Jefferson. Jefferson writes: "Sir, "Your letter of August 20th has truly surprised me. In that it is said that, for certain services performed by Mr. James Lyon and Mr. Samuel Morse, formerly editors of the Savannah Republican, I promised them the sum of 1000 D. This, Sir, is totally unfounded. I never promised to any printer on earth the sum of 1000 D., nor any other sum, for certain services performed, or for any services which that expression would imply. I have had no accounts with printers but for their newspapers, for which I have paid always the ordinary price and no more. I have occasionally joined in moderate contributions to printers, as I have done to other descriptions of persons, distressed or persecuted, not by promise, but the actual payment of what I contributed. When Mr. Morse went to Savannah, he called on me and told me he meant to publish a paper there, for which I subscribed, and paid him the year in advance. I continued to take it from his successors, Everett & McLean, and Everett & Evans, and paid for it at different epochs up to December 31, 1808, when I withdrew my subscription. You say McLean informed you 'he had some expectation of getting the money, as he had received a letter from me on the subject.' If such a letter exists under my name, it is a forgery. I never wrote but a single letter to him; that was of the 28th of January, 1810, and was on the subject of the last payment made for his newspaper, and on no other subject; and I have two receipts of his, (the last dated March 9, 1809) of payments for his paper, both stating to be in full of all demands, and a letter of the 17th of April, 1810, in reply to mine, manifestly showing he had no demand against me of any other nature. The promise is said to have been made to Morse & Lyon. Were Mr. Morse living, I should appeal to him with confidence, as I believe him to have been a very honest man. Mr. Lyon I suppose to be living, and will, I am sure, acquit me of any such transaction as that alleged. The truth, then, being that I never made the promise suggested, nor any one of a like nature to any printer or other person whatever, every principle of justice and of self-respect requires that I should not listen to any such demand." Jefferson sent James Lyon a copy of the letter the same day: "You will perceive at once its swindling object. My confidence in your character leaves me without a doubt of your honest aid in repelling this base and bold attempt to fix on me practices to which no honors or powers in this world would ever have induced me to stoop. I have solicited none, intrigued for none." Jefferson died severely in debt, and he was plagued by money problems thro

McCall's history covers events from 1733 to 1783, with the first volume going through 1773 and the second being wholly devoted to the Revolution. The second volume was written largely from personal experience, since McCall was a Revolutionary officer.

The interest that his writings aroused in the ancient Scandanavian Tongues directed attention to their literature, He was the first to study the ancient Nordic languages systematically. He disovered the correspondence of the consonant relations between the Indo-European languages, which led Jacob Grimm to formulate the rules underlying the Germanic as well as the the first complete texts of the eddas of Snorri and Saemund and added modernised versions. During his journeys to Russia and Persia he collected valuable Avesta and Pali manuscripts which he gave to the Royal Library in Copenhagen of which he was the librarian, and thereby promoted the study of the Asian branches of the Indo-European family fo languagesî (Printing and the Mind of Man).Printing and the Mind of Man 266.HBS 65357.$1,750

      Caracas: Gallagher y Lamb, July 1811.. Broadside, 12 1/4 inches tall. Slight worming in foremargin, repaired. A very good copy. July 5, 1811 is Venezuela's official independence day, following more than a year of wrangling and temporary measures after the deposing of the Captain General on April 20, 1810 and the establishment of a caretaker government that already styled itself as "independent," despite paying lip service to loyalty to Ferdinand VII. This document dates from immediately after July 5th, as internal evidence shows. Here the Junta Suprema explains what it perceives as the political reality of Spain's dissolution into non-nationhood under Napoleon and thereby justifies "Venezuela [having] entered now, Americanos, into the number of free nations of the Americas." This is the third known copy. Grases locates only the copies in the Public Record Office (London) and the Archivo de Indias (Seville). Searches of NUC and OCLC fail to find any copy at all. Furthermore, no copies were found when searching the OPACs of the national libraries of Venezuela, Colombia, Spain, France, and England.
