        Eigenh. Briefentwurf.

      O. O., [ca. 1847].. 4 SS. 8vo. Mit bekröntem Wappen.. Offensichtlich zu Übungszwecken verfaßter Brief des etwa fünfzehnjährigen Erzherzogs an seinen Französischlehrer Hippolyte Dore, der sich zu einem Kuraufenthalt in Karlsbad befindet. Die strengen Korrekturen des Lehrers verwandeln die überschwänglichen Wünsche des jugendlichen Schülers in kühle Formeln. So wird "Fortuna" als Reisebegleiterin ebenso gestrichen wie das dem Lehrer bezeugte dichterische "genie", das durch "talent" ersetzt wird. Desweiteren berichtet Maximilian von einem Ausflug zu einem Schießstand nach Mauer bei Wien sowie von einem mysteriösen Mordfall an einem Stellwagenkutscher: "[ ] on decouvrit les premieres traces de sang a Hietzing, rue de Lainz, mais le cadavre du malheureux n'a ete trouve que sur le pont de fer qui conduit de Hitzing a Penzing; le corps etait perce de deux coups de poignard [ ]". - Beiliegt: Übersetzung ins Deutsche.

        James Polk writes to a fellow University of North Carolina classmate on his highly anticipated visit to his alma mater in 1847

      "Autograph Letter Signed, ""James K. Polk,"" as President, 2 pages, 7.75"" x 9.75"", Washington, May 26, 1847 to Edward J. Mallet of New York, concerning his plans to attend the June commencement exercises at the University of North Carolina, his alma mater. Mounting remnants at left margin, mildly toned area at top left bears a paperclip mark, minor repair bottom margin, top margin irregularly trimmed at top margin just grazing top line of text on second page, else very good. ""I regret extremely that my attention was not called to your esteemed letter of the 17th Instant call until this evening. It's sometimes happens ?"that my letters not on official business ?" or laid aside by my Private Secretary to read when my public duties will permit. He omitted to bring to my special notice, and this will explain to yours the delay in answering it. ?" Judge Mason and myself, Will visit the University of and. Carolina, ?" and be present at the commencement of the third ?" of June, and I assure you I will give me my every sincere pleasure to have you of our party. ?"how are arrangements have been made to leave this city on Friday the 28th instant ?". We will reach Raleigh on Saturday ?" and remain there until Monday the 31st ?" on which day we will go to Chappel [sic] Hill.?" we will I learn we met at Raleigh by our classmate and esteemed friend the Revd-Wm. M Green, and a committee from the college.- no my dear Sir, though I fear you cannot reach here ?" before we leave, can you not join us at Raleigh & accompany us from that point? ?" Space I hope you will do so. ?" I repeat my deep regret, that that your letter was not brought to my notice earlier: still I hope to have your company from Raleigh. ?" I am sure you would enjoy the visit. We will probably need many of our classmates & and college friends, from when we have been long separated, and whom we may soon have another opportunity to see:"" Polk had attended during the school's infancy (it was chartered by the state in 1795), and his status as the school's first (of only two Presidential alumnae) was a matter of great pride for the school and the state of North Carolina. The visit proved a sensation and North Carolinians travelled enormous distances to visit with the President. He travelled from Washington in a party which included his wife, her niece, Polk's private secretary, and Attorney General (and fellow U.N.C. alumnus) John Y. Mason, who was to deliver the commencement address. Polk fondly recorded his first trip to his alma mater after 29 years in his diary. During his visit, he visited his old haunts, including his dorm room, visited with fellow alumnae, reliving old times, and in general basking in a shower of adulation. He even visited ""a meeting of the Dialectic Society, of which I was a member when I was in college. At the suggestion of Professor Green I made a short address to the society"" (James K. Polk's Diary, 1910, Vol. 3, p. 47). From his departure southward on May 29, 1847, Polk and his small entourage found themselves mobbed with admirers, all insisting on shaking the President's hand. A large delegation met him at the North Carolina-Virginia border which escorted the party on to Chapel Hill. Polk recorded the commencement exercises in his diary, noting that ""The number of persons in attendance was greatly increased. Hundreds from the adjoining country had come in. As soon as I left my room in the morning I was surrounded by them, and, except while at breakfast, continued to receive them and to shake hands with them until the hour at which the Commencement exercises commenced. [Messrs,. Strunk & White?]"" The ceremony, which lasted until five thirty in the afternoon, was punctuated by an hour and a half recess. Polk took the opportunity to grab a meal at his hotel, but there found a ""crowd in waiting to see me,"" the size of which made it ""impossible that they could all see me if I remained in the House. Several of my friends who thought the people present, many of whom had come a considerable distance, ought to be gratified, insisted I should go out to the grove, & I did so. I was soon surrounded by hundreds of persons, and for an hour or more was constantly engaged in shaking hands with them."" Following the second half of the commencement exercises, in which 37 ""young gentlemen"" received bachelor's degrees, Polk left Chapel Hill the same evening in order to return to Washington in good time (Ibid., p. 48). The recipient, Edward J. Mallett, was a native of Fayetteville, and a fellow classmate of Polk's who practiced law in New York. From 1831 to 1845, Mallett served as Postmaster for Providence Rhode Island. During Dorr's Rebellion, Mallett sided with those supporting the original state charter (The Life and Times of Thomas Wilson Dorr, 1859, p. 175). At the end of his tenure as postmaster in Providence, he moved to New York City where he ran the St. Nicholas Bank (Correspondence of James K. Polk January-June 1845, 1996, p. 178; Trow's New York City Directory, 1859, p. 12) For some time, Mallet served as the American consul-general in Italy, and during the Civil War, Mallett served as a Paymaster in the U.S. Army. (Kemp Plummer Battle, History of the University of North Carolina, 1912, p. 236). "

        General Order # 54 Signed by "J. Williams, A.D. Camp," Informing of the American Success in the Battle of Buena Vista during the Mexican-American War].

      1847 - Headquarters, Army of U.S., Vergara, before Vera Cruz, 15 March 1847. Octavo (ca. 24x20,5 cm). 1 p. Brown ink on white paper. Written in secretarial hand and signed by T. Williams, docketed on verso. Mild fold marks, old mount residue on verso, otherwise a very good letter. "The General-in Chief of the Army has received authentic information of a great and glorious victory, obtained by the aims of our country, under the successful Major General Taylor, at Buenavista, near Saltillo, on the 22 and 23 ultimo. The general results were 4,000 of the enemy killed and wounded, against our loss of 700 gallant men. General Santa Ana, on sustaining that overwhelming defeat, is known to have retreated upon San Luis de Potosi, and probably will not stop short of the Capital. The General-in-Chief imparts this glorious news to the army, that all, with him, may participate in the joy that is now spreading itself throughout the breadth of our Land." "The Battle of Buena Vista (February 23, 1847), also known as the Battle of Angostura, saw the United States Army use artillery to repulse the much larger Mexican Army in the Mexican-American War. Buena Vista, a village in the state of Coahuila, is seven miles (12 km) south of Saltillo, in northern Mexico. The battle was the last major battle in Northern Mexico. It was Taylor's greatest victory of the war, and his legendary command to Cap. Bragg helped him win election as President of the United States in 1848. Santa Anna was later forced to defend Mexico City against an army under Winfield Scott" (Wikipedia). Thomas Williams was a lieutenant upon signing this note, but later became a Brigadier General in the Union army.

"Wilkinson's greatest published work was Manners and Customs of the Ancient Egyptians (1837), a profusely illustrated description of ancient Egyptian society. Drawing upon his work in the tombs at Gurna, Wilkinson was able to present a poignant picture of daily life in ancient Egypt that instantly caught the popular imagination. Praised by one reviewer as a ?restoration to life, as it were, of the ancient Pharaohs, and their subjects? (QR, Jan 1839, 120), it passed through many editions, influencing generations of English-speaking readers," (DNB). Provenance: Armorial bookplates of Edward Huth. Lowndes 2924.

        Framed Autographed Note Signed in the third person

      1847. unbound. 1 page, 2 x 4 inches, no place, December 24, 1847, in full: "Mrs. Madison's love and thanks to Mrs. Duncan for her excellent present." Float-mounted inside an off-white matte with a double opening containing an original 7 x 5.5-inch engraving by William Chappell, circa 1812, and delicately set into a gray and gold wooden frame, measuring 15.5 x 11 inches. This note was written to the wife of Kentucky Congressman Garnett Duncan who visited Washington, D.C. in 1847 and befriended the former First Lady, often presenting her with food packages. At the time this letter was written, Dolley Madison was so poor that she had to accept money from a former slave and hand-outs from her neighbors on Lafayette Square. She died two years later. Fine condition. First Lady and wife of President James Madison. In 1814 she famously saved many state papers and a portrait of George Washington as British soldiers advanced on the capital, barely escaping with the national treasures as the White House was occupied and looted.
