        Coleccion de bailes de sala, y método para aprenderlos sin ausilio de maestro, dedicada a la juventud Mexicana por Domingo Ibarra. Contiene las reglas generales del baile, conocimiento y método para ejecutar los pasos de que se componen los bailes mas generalizados, acompañándose para la mejor comprension de ellos seis láminas con diversas figuras litografiadas.

      Tipograpfía de Nabor Chavez, Mexico City 1860 - 8vo, 21.5 x 14.5 cm, pp [2], [1-5] 6-74, [2], [34 (11 pieces of music)] and 6 hand-colored lithograph plates. First edition of the first Mexican dance instruction book. The origen of this work is treated in four letters included in the prefatory material, dating from 1858. In these letters it is stated that the purpose of the book was to entice the youth of Mexico away form such activities such as gambling, into the more wholesome activity of dancing, and mentions that there was no dance instruction book available for them: it is to that lack that Sr. Ibarra has composed his book. After a brief introduction, he quickly goes over the basic dancing steps. He then discusses dances meant for two persons (El Wals, La Polka, El Scotish, etc.), noting with some satisfaction that he and Eduardo Gavira invented the dance called "La Camelina." The discussion then proceeds to dances performed by four or more pairs (Mazurca de Tertulia, Cuadrillas Francesas, etc.) and concludes with a section on historical quadrilles, all of which fall under the major title of "La Guerra de Rusia," referring to Napoleon's invasion of same. The book concludes with the six plates, to which the text is keyed, and the eleven pieces of piano-forte music, the longest one of which also concerns the Russian War. Of the six plates, the first two demonstrate dance steps; plate 3 shows Le Wals; 4 shows contradanza (square dancing); 5 shows danza habanera (Habana-style); and 6 shows polka. Significantly all the pieces of music in it are new and by Mexican composers. The pieces entitled "La Camelina" and "Polka Camelina," both inspired by Dumas fils’ La Dame aux camélias. Ibarra also gives the history of each dance and when it was introduced into Mexico. Dancing was frowned upon by the Church, which explains perhaps the late appearance of this, the first book on dance in Mexico. It was not till Maximilian and the French invasion that the country opened up to dance and theater. Little is known about Ibarra. Very rare: one copy on OCLC, in the Biblioteca Nacional of Mexico, and only one of the second, in the same library; only 1 copy at auction on record, viz. this one. Original black half sheep over decorative cloth blind stamped on upper cover, spine gilt-lettered and decorated, original blue and brown marbled endpapers. Small snag in spine (no loss), lightly rubbed, fore edges of upper board moderately eroded, lower fore edge chipped, corners bumped. Some leaves lightly browned, but otherwise interior, including plates, is fine. An excellent, complete copy of a significant book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Short split down top of spine, text block sound, creasing to spine ends, few light spots to rear cover, a little bit of wear to extremities. An excellent copy. First edition, second issue.

An autograph letter from Nightingale to the artist Gaetano Meo, artists model and painter associated with the Pre-Raphaelites, is bound in at the rear, dated 21 January 1887. Nightingale expresses her relief that "your son Rocco is sufficiently recovered to be moved from Brighton" and discusses arrangements for his transfer to Queen Square Hospital in London. Published six months before the opening of the Nightingale School at St Thomas's Hospital in London in June 1860, this work was not intended to be a textbook per se but as a book of hints for those nursing in the hospital ward and in the domestic sick room. Nightingale provides practical descriptions of the nurse's duties in supplying her patient's needs, and "indicated a new and more responsible role for nurses, one that required proper training and medical knowledge." (Hook & Norman, p. 260).

        Speech of Abraham Lincoln of Illinois, Delivered at the Cooper Institute, Monday, Feb. 27, 1860 [Cooper Union Address]. WITH: Carte-de-Visite of the Mathew Brady "Cooper Union" photograph

      New York Tribune, New York 1860 - FIRST EDITION of Lincoln's historic Cooper Union Address, delivered on February 27, 1860 at the Cooper Institute in Brooklyn, New York. The speech is largely credited to having launched Lincoln's Presidential bid. With silver print carte-de-visite of the Brady "Cooper Union" photograph. In the fall of 1859, James A. Briggs, who served on the lecture committee of the Plymouth Church in Brooklyn, invited presidential candidate hopeful Abraham Lincoln to speak to a New York audience on any subject of his choosing. Lincoln accepted the invitation, choosing to speak of the current political climate in America. William O. Stoddard, an Illinois journalist who worked for President Lincoln during his administration, noted that "No previous effort of his life cost him so much hard work as did that Cooper Institute speech" and that the resulting speech "was a masterly review of the history of the slavery question from the foundation of the government, with a clear, bold, statesmanlike presentation of the then present attitude of parties and of sections. It exhibited a careful research, a thorough knowledge and understanding of political movements and developments, that staggered even the most laborious and painstaking students. It showed a grasp, a breadth, a mental training, and a depth of penetration which compelled the admiration of critical scholars" (Stoddard, Abraham Lincoln: The True Story of a Great Life). "Horace Greeley had rushed out the speech in pamphlet form as 'Tribune Tract' Number 4, under the headline: National Politics. Speech of Abraham Lincoln, of Illinois, Delivered at the Cooper Institute, Monday Feb. 27, 1860. The pamphlet was ready March 6, while Lincoln was still traveling through Connecticut. When he returned to New York, he found it already available to the public. "Greeley marketed the eleven-page Tribune edition aggressively? As a bonus, the publication included Wisconsin Republican senator James Doolittle's February 24 speech attaching 'the new doctrine of judicial infallibility,' as did Lincoln's address at Cooper Union just three days later, and also, like Cooper Union, railing agains 'the headstrong zeal pursued by the other party to force slavery into Territories'? "It was as if Republicans were now speaking with one voice: identifying with the founders, attacking the Dred Scott decision, rebuking John Brown, and drawing their own 'dividing line' on slavery extension. Lincoln did not say it alone; but he said it best? 'Mr. Lincoln's is probably the most systematic and complete defense yet made of the Republican position with regard to Slavery,' the Tribune declared in its initial advertisement for the reprints. 'We believe no speech has yet been made better calculated to win the intelligent minds over to our standard. Will the friends of the Cause everywhere aid us to circulate it?' "The answer was yes. The Tribune Tract edition proved enormously popular, going through at least five additional editions? [Lincoln's] New York oration was enjoying a new and sustained life in pamphlet form, and was being purchased, individually, and in bulk alike, by admirers and groups across the North. "The Cooper Union address tested whether Lincoln's appeal could extend from the podium to the page, and from the rollicking campaigns of the rural West to the urban East? Cooper Union held the promise of transforming Lincoln from a regional phenomenon to a national figure. Lincoln knew it, and rose to the occasion. "As if to illustrate his metamorphosis, the Cooper Union appearance also inspired the most important single visual record on Lincoln's, or perhaps any, American presidential campaign: an image-transfiguring Mathew Brady photograph.

        LOUIS WAIN SIGNED ORIGINAL PEN AND INK DRAWING OF A CAT

      0, 0 - LOUIS WAIN, (ENGLISH 1860-1939) FRAMED ORIGINAL CHARMING PEN AND INK DRAWING OF A CAT, LAVISHLY SIGNED IN FULL ¿LOUIS WAIN¿ A STUNNING DRAWING OF A CAT¿S FACE WITH A MISCHIEVOUS SMUG EXPRESSION, FRAMED TO A COMPLETED SIZE OF: 16¿ X 14¿ THE ART IS IN FINE CONDITION AND WAS CUSTOM MATTED, FRAMED AND GLAZED. A VERY STUNNING PIECE! A rare beautiful original Louis Wain drawing in pen and ink, of a cat with a lovely mischievous look of smugness on his face. Signed to the front, lower left by Louis Wain. The page is lightly toned with light creasing. The art is floated, custom double matted, framed and glazed and is presented in a natural light maple wood frame, with a deeply beveled mat. The piece was framed using all archival materials and UV glass. The art is signed in full signature by Louis Wain as ¿Louis Wain¿lower left. Wain has a very distinctive artistic style capturing incredible emotions in his highly detailed cat drawing. Provenance: The sketch was acquired by a premier London auction house who vetted the art. A copy of the lot description showing both the purchase, along with the art description will accompany the framed piece as provenance. Louis Wain original artwork is exceedingly scarce. A very stunning piece and showcases very well. Perfect for the Louis Wain and cat art collector. Louis Wain was one of the most popular commercial illustrators in the history of England. Born in 1860, his anthropomorphic portrayals of cats captured the imagination of the Edwardian era and his work helped to elevate the profile and popularity of our feline friends to unprecedented heights. Before Wain, cats in England were often thought of with contempt but his work humanised them and helped to show them as something to be liked, admired and even loved. In 1886, Wain¿s first drawing of anthropomorphised cats was published in the Christmas issue of the Illustrated London News, titled ¿A Kittens¿ Christmas Party¿. The illustration depicted 150 cats. In subsequent years, Wain¿s cats began to walk upright, smile broadly and use other exaggerated facial expressions, and would wear sophisticated, contemporary clothing. Wain¿s illustrations showed cats playing musical instruments, serving tea, playing cards, fishing, smoking, and enjoying a night at the opera. Such anthropomorphic portrayals of animals were very popular in Victorian England and were often found in prints, on greeting cards and in satirical illustrations such as those of John Tenniel. His illustrations were so popular that throughout the beginning of the twentieth-century most homes had at least one of his famous cat annuals and many nurseries had Wain posters hanging on their walls. ¿He made the cat his own¿ H.G. Wells once remarked. ¿He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world.¿ His artistic style changed throughout his life, although he was always known for drawings of cats. In his later years, his drawings took on a psychedelic style (not unlike some of Van Goghs art), with many of his painting containing brilliant background colors with swirling patterns. Eventually even his cats began to take on the same psychedelic appearances beginning to seemingly blend into the background. FRAMED SIZE: 16¿ X 14¿. ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

        Nobility in Costumes.

      Canton ca 1860 - Album (29.5 x 21.5 cm) with 12 watercolour and gouache on pith paper, each laid on paper with a light blue ribbon; one a bit stained in brown. Contemporary binding of patterned brown paper; very rubbed. A lovely variety of Chinese official costumes, in fine condition and bright colours. Pith seems not to have been adopted for painting until about 1820. Some European museums claim that their paintings on pith (often erroneously called "rice paper" or "mulberry pith") come from the end of the eighteenth century but there do not seem to be any dateable examples that are so early. There is a record of the Kaiser Franz of Austria buying some albums from an English Consul-General Watts in 1826. We know of an Italian Count who visited Canton in 1828 and had over 350 paintings on pith in his baggage when he died in Ambon two years later. In the British Library there is a scrap-book containing six pith paintings and a journal entry by a serving British officer who sent them home from India in 1829. These examples and contemporary accounts by visitors to Canton suggest that there was a flourishing trade in pith paintings by the early 1830s. Pith presumably came into use for painting to satisfy the increasing demand for small, inexpensive and easily transported souvenirs, following the massive growth in the China Trade in the first quarter of the nineteenth century. Paintings in oils, on board and canvas were costly and difficult to carry home. Earlier and more prestigious export water-colours had often been on a larger scale and painted on fine Chinese paper or on paper imported from Europe. The albums of pith paintings (and later the little glass-fronted boxes) were inexpensive, light, easy to pack and gave the pictures some protection on the long voyage home. Because many were sold in albums and hence protected from the light, they retain their bright colours to this day. Pith comes from the central column of spongy cellular tissue in the stem of a small tree called Tetrapanax Papyrifera, native to south-west China. It has had a variety of uses, some going back many centuries. At the imperial court both men and women wore coloured flowers made from pith in their hair. For use in painting, it is cut by hand with a knife into thin sheets from short lengths of the spongy tissue. Cutting is highly skilled and the constraints of the process mean that the finished sheets for painting seldom, if ever, measure more than about 30cms by 20cms. The sheets are dried, trimmed and used for painting without any further processing. Because of the nature of pith and its cellular structure, the gouache used by the Chinese sat on the surface and produced a bright and even sparkling effect. Very fine detail could be achieved but pith did not lend itself to the flat wash of colour favoured for European watercolours. Carl Crossman in his book The Decorative Arts of the China Trade (originally published under the title The China Trade) gives an excellent list of export painters with a note of those known to have painted on pith. These include Tingqua, Sunqua and Youqua. From 1757 until 1842 Canton was the only Chinese port open to trade with the west and it is no surprise that of the eight studios identified by Crossman as producing works on pith, six were in Canton. It seems that the 1830s and 1840s may have been the heyday of pith painting. The international trading bases, the waterfront 'factories' on the 'Hongs' in Canton, where they were produced, were partially burnt during the First Opium War (1839-41) and totally destroyed in a fire of 1856. The foreign trading companies then moved to Honan and subsequently put up splendid new offices on reclaimed land at Shamian Island, a little up river. As the result of the Treaty of Nanking, in 1842 additional Chinese ports were opened up for foreign trade and Hong Kong was established as a major trading centre. By 1860 references to China in the Illustrated London News, plentiful three years earlier, were few a [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Two Autograph Letters Signed and a MS Memorial Signed by American Poet Lydia Sigourney; discussing one of her earliest writings; With Related Items

      Hartford [Connecticut] 1860 - Collection, viz., 1. 2 ALsS, 5-pages, total, written by Lydia H. Sigourney. 2. One four-page Memorial Essay Ms., written by Lydia H. Sigourney. 3. 1 two-page ALS by Mary H. Sigourney (offsetting and browning to first page). 4. An Anonymous MS. Poem, 1-pageEach letter and the poem accompanied by an envelope. American author and poet Lydia Huntley Sigourney (1791-1865) was one of the most widely read women writers of the ante-bellum period. "It is almost impossible to find a number of one of the popular magazines of the [eighteen] thirties or forties that does not contain a poem or an article by her." [DAB] Sigourney, who was known as the "Sweet Singer of Hartford," published most of her works under the name "Mrs. Sigourney." Among her publishers was Edgar Allan Poe. The present group of letters and manuscripts includes two autograph letters signed by Lydia H. Sigourney and a memorial essay, "Miss Helen Talcott," written by, copied out, and signed by Lydia H. Sigourney. Here, Sigourney's writings are on the topic of death or memory. The DAB notes that "[t]he theme of most of her writing is death. The inevitable regularity with which her poetic tribute followed the demise of any prominent person led a wag to declare she had added a new terror to death." In a letter to Mr. & Mrs. Henry S. Tudor, who are grieving the death of their first child, Mrs. Sigourney offers her ".sympathy in this deep affliction of the removal of your first-born." She makes them a gift of a book (possibly one of her own works): I ask your acceptance of the accompanying book, and should its daily voice of text and poem ever speak soothingly to your hearts it will be gratifying to your own, and your Parents' friend, L.H. Sigourney. In her letter to Judge Nathaniel Goodwin, Sigourney refers to one of her early writings, a biographical sketch: But I ought not thus to have deferred my acknowledgements for your emendations, and improvements of the poor, biographical sketch submitted to your judgment. I ought in justice to myself to say, that it was never intended as a historical article,-but only as a simple illustration of the piety of the reverend subject;-and was, if I recollect right, abridged from a religious magazine conducted by the Revd. Dr. N. Strong, and originally written, while I was a young girl, in school here to the ancient Miss Patten. Sigourney's 4-page biographical, memorial essay "Miss Helen Talcott" appears to be praise of an elderly resident of Hartford: Books were a source of never-failing delight, and an extensive range of English and French literature was systematically pursued and digested. There were few more frequent applicants at the excellent Library of our Institute, and none where selection was more rational and refined.The essay, according to Sigourney's concluding note, was "[c]opied for Miss Mary Layman with the love of her friend L.H.S." It may be unpublished and it bears the dateline of Hartford. September 2nd, 1856. Sigourney's letters and her manuscript are accompanied by two additional items: a letter to Judge Goodwin from Mrs. Sigourney's daughter, Mary H. Sigourney, and a poem, by an unknown author, found with this collection, entitled "To H.B. Tudor" (Mrs. H.S. Tudor). Mary Sigourney's letter concerns her efforts to help a poor, sick Irishman, James Flood: My mother has told me that I have permission to inform you occasionally when I find cases of suffering among the poor. . [Flood] has been induced to believe, that if he could go to the Hospital in New-York, he might be cured. Dr. Holmes has attended him,-and Father Brady gives him a certificate of good character & the promise of little aid. This small cache of letters and the manuscript by Lydia H. Sigourney and the letter from her daughter lend interesting insights to both Mrs. Sigourney's early writing and to her declining years in Hartford. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Speech of Hon. Sam Houston, of Texas, Exposing the Malfeasance and Corruption of John Charles Watrous, Judge of the Federal Court in Texas, and of His Confederates. Delivered in the Senate of the United States, Feb. 3, 1859

      New York: Pudney & Russell, 1860. First Edition. 1/4 leather. Very good. Approximately 5" x 7.5". Complete with iii introductory pages including the half-title, tissue-protected frontispiece portrait of Sam Houston, and 100 text pages. Marbled paper covered boards with later half-cloth spine covering. Bright gilt lettering on spine. Very good condition. Sound binding with intact hinges. All pages and frontispiece are attached; a blank front flyleaf is just starting to detach. See Howes H-690. Watrous arrived in Texas in 1837 and soon became involved in several land companies as a lawyer, shareholder, and part owner. He became the Texas attorney general in 1838, but only served two years when conflicts arose between his public duty and land company entanglements. He soon became a legal advisor for the Peters Colony of the Texas Land and Emigration Company and remained in that position until 1846 when he pulled strings with an old friend, the new President, James K. Polk, to secure an appointment as a U.S. District Judge. Both Texas senators and many other Texas politicians opposed his appointment in part because they favored another candidate, but primarily because of personal, vested connection with land speculators and charges, unproven but likely true, that he had attempted to validate forged land certificates. The House of Representatives initiated impeachment hearings in 1851, however the case against him was eventually dropped in 1858. His opponents continued their campaign against Watrous, and Senator Sam Houston's vitriolic and convincing attack upon him in this speech on the Senate floor in 1859 convinced many the charges were true, and impeachment hearings were reinitiated, but once more the investigation was dropped when Congress adjourned in the Spring of 1861 as the Civil War began. Throughout the war, Watrous was denied a seat on the bench by the Confederate government but he resumed his old position in 1865 and served until 1869 when medical problems forced him to resign. Quite scarce. As of 2017, the Rare Book Hub shows only one auction record and no examples are currently available for sale. OCLC shows many digital and reprint copies but only one original book, which is held by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas.

        San Augustine Mining Company Certificate [1861 or 1862]

      Mesilla, Arizona Territory Under Confederacy: Mesilla Times. , OCLC reports the only known copy of a dozen issued is at the Rio Grande Historical Collection an New Mexico University Library. According to Martin Hardwick Hall, the Messila Times was founded in 1860 and lasted only for a year and a half since its owners Robert P. Kelley and D.W. Hughes were placing their all their interests into mining and real estate in the area. (The Mesilla Times went out of business in the Spring of 1862). The Territory lay south of Jornada del Muerto and the Gila River (roughly the Gadsen Purchase) and was called "Arizona." It needs to be kept in mind that this was the Arizona Territory under the Confederacy and not that which Lincoln established in 1863 under the United States. The certificate is signed by President Sam'L J. Jones and Secretary James A. Lucas. It has a vignette of an allegorical Indian woman and printed in blue ink with a blue border on paper measuring 4" x 10 1/2". There are a number of fascinating aspects of this mining venture. First, it was originally owned by two Mexican investors but their claims were invalidated by the Gadsen Purchase. Second the original claim owner was William Claude-Jones (who along with Governor Goodwin and Coles Bashford) were signers of the first Arizona legislation in 1864. Claude-Jones also was noted later in Michener's Rascals in Paradise where his predilection for pre-pubescent girls continued. Third, Sylvester Mowry who was a Southern sympathizer (and briefly jailed in 1862 by Union troops) was a vital part of the company. Commissioner Herbert stated their basic idea for being part of the Confederacy to avoid "the black fanaticism of the North". By August of 1861 the territory was back under the control of the Union (and William Claude Jones aligned himself with the Union). It has been pointed out that this company was the earliest land scam in the American southwest making this original scarce document among the earliest witnesses of Arizona before its admission as a Territory to the Union during the Civil War.

He was the guest of President Buchanan at the White House; he opened the Victoria Bridge in Montreal; laid the cornerstone of Parliament Hill in Ottawa; and watched while Charles Blondin traversed Niagara Falls by highwire. The visit represented a brief period of warm diplomatic relations between Britain and the United States, which quickly ended with the onset of the Civil War.

        Journal of Researches into the Natural History and Geology of the Countries Visited During the Voyage of H.M.S. Beagle Round the World under the command of Capt. Fitz Roy, R.N.

      London: John Murray, 1860. First printing of second edition. "Tenth Thousand". Cloth. Very good. xv, 519, 32 p. 21 cm. 11 b&w wood engravings and diagrams within text. Green cloth hardcover with blank impressing. Spine ends repaired. Corners bumped. Dents in tops of boards. Bookplate, ink signature, and small label on front pastedown and ink notation on rear. Hinges repaired internally. Initials across from title page and ink mark on margin of xiv. Darwin's first published book is also his most read and stands second only to "The Origin of Species" as the most printed. Usually referred to today as the "Voyage of the Beagle" it makes for interesting reading as a travel book as well as a scientifc text. Darwin actually spent as little time as possible on board the Beagle; he was miserably sea-sick and preferred extensive expeditions on land. Those excursions allowed him to describe the "savages" of South America, the Great Tortoises of the Galapagos, Australian convicts, and the cruelties of slavery. This printing is the final definitive text with the first appearance of the Postscript on p. vii dated February 1, 1860, in which Darwin corrects a few errors. This is also the first publishing in the green cloth binding in the same style as the first three John Murray editions of "On the Origin of Species." 32 pages of publisher's advertising at rear dated January 1860 show the variety of Murray's published works.

        Two Autograph Letters Signed and a MS Memorial Signed by American Poet Lydia Sigourney; discussing one of her earliest writings; With Related Items

      Hartford [Connecticut], 1860. Overall Very Good. Collection, viz., 1. 2 ALsS, 5-pages, total, written by Lydia H. Sigourney. 2. One four-page Memorial Essay Ms., written by Lydia H. Sigourney. 3. 1 two-page ALS by Mary H. Sigourney (offsetting and browning to first page). 4. An Anonymous MS. Poem, 1-pageEach letter and the poem accompanied by an envelope. American author and poet Lydia Huntley Sigourney (1791-1865) was one of the most widely read women writers of the ante-bellum period. "It is almost impossible to find a number of one of the popular magazines of the [eighteen] thirties or forties that does not contain a poem or an article by her..." [DAB] Sigourney, who was known as the "Sweet Singer of Hartford," published most of her works under the name "Mrs. Sigourney." Among her publishers was Edgar Allan Poe. The present group of letters and manuscripts includes two autograph letters signed by Lydia H. Sigourney and a memorial essay, "Miss Helen Talcott," written by, copied out, and signed by Lydia H. Sigourney. Here, Sigourney's writings are on the topic of death or memory. The DAB notes that "[t]he theme of most of her writing is death. The inevitable regularity with which her poetic tribute followed the demise of any prominent person led a wag to declare she had added a new terror to death." In a letter to Mr. & Mrs. Henry S. Tudor, who are grieving the death of their first child, Mrs. Sigourney offers her "...sympathy in this deep affliction of the removal of your first-born..." She makes them a gift of a book (possibly one of her own works): I ask your acceptance of the accompanying book, and should its daily voice of text and poem ever speak soothingly to your hearts it will be gratifying to your own, and your Parents' friend, L.H. Sigourney. In her letter to Judge Nathaniel Goodwin, Sigourney refers to one of her early writings, a biographical sketch: But I ought not thus to have deferred my acknowledgements for your emendations, and improvements of the poor, biographical sketch submitted to your judgment. I ought in justice to myself to say, that it was never intended as a historical article,-but only as a simple illustration of the piety of the reverend subject;-and was, if I recollect right, abridged from a religious magazine conducted by the Revd. Dr. N. Strong, and originally written, while I was a young girl, in school here to the ancient Miss Patten. Sigourney's 4-page biographical, memorial essay "Miss Helen Talcott" appears to be praise of an elderly resident of Hartford: Books were a source of never-failing delight, and an extensive range of English and French literature was systematically pursued and digested. There were few more frequent applicants at the excellent Library of our Institute, and none where selection was more rational and refined.The essay, according to Sigourney's concluding note, was "[c]opied for Miss Mary Layman with the love of her friend L.H.S." It may be unpublished and it bears the dateline of Hartford. September 2nd, 1856. Sigourney's letters and her manuscript are accompanied by two additional items: a letter to Judge Goodwin from Mrs. Sigourney's daughter, Mary H. Sigourney, and a poem, by an unknown author, found with this collection, entitled "To H.B. Tudor" (Mrs. H.S. Tudor). Mary Sigourney's letter concerns her efforts to help a poor, sick Irishman, James Flood: My mother has told me that I have permission to inform you occasionally when I find cases of suffering among the poor. ... [Flood] has been induced to believe, that if he could go to the Hospital in New-York, he might be cured... Dr. Holmes has attended him,-and Father Brady gives him a certificate of good character & the promise of little aid. This small cache of letters and the manuscript by Lydia H. Sigourney and the letter from her daughter lend interesting insights to both Mrs. Sigourney's early writing and to her declining years in Hartford.
