BURR, Aaron
Autograph Letter Signed (Als)
n.p. 1 January [early 1800s]. Letter. A one-page letter on laid paper (6" x 7-1/2") without salutation but addressed to Mrs. [Martha] Bradstreet on the address panel. In full: "I very much suspect, my dear friend, that you will escape the noise of our french and spanish infantry today -- they marched, literally marched, to West Chester on Friday last under orders to return last evening -- they have not appeared nor has anything been heard of them -- I wrote to them yesterday by mail desiring that they would return by this morning's stage -- but they may not think of going to the Post Office -- the stage has arrived without them -- It may be concluded therefore that we shall not see them today -- This will not deprive me of the honor of dining with you & of offering in person the assurance of my respect & attachment." SIGNED "A. Burr. Some fading of the ink in the last few lines and the signature, but very readable. Near Fine Aaron Burr, a Continental Army officer in the Revolutionary War and third vice president of the United States, serving during Jefferson's first term (1801-1805), is best known for killing Alexander Hamilton in an infamous illegal duel in 1804, the final year of Burr's vice presidency. All charges against Burr were eventually dropped, but it ended his political career. As a successful lawyer, one of Burr's clients was Martha Bradstreet who, though born in Ireland, spent most of her life in America trying to reclaim ownership of thousands of acres of land around Utica, New York, that belonged before the Revolution to her step-grandfather, General John Bradstreet, former Governor of Newfoundland, best known for his role in the French and Indian Wars.

BURROUGHS, John
Autograph Manuscript Signed (Ams): "Germany's True Greatness" with a Typed Letter Signed (Tls)
[August - September 1914]. Manuscript. A 13-page working draft in pencil with corrections, mostly on rectos of 5-1/2" x 9" sheets, SIGNED by Burroughs at the conclusion. Written in response to a statement published by two German philosophers defending their country's invasion of Belgium at the outset of World War I. Burroughs contrasts Germany's cultural spirit with its military ambition, praising the country's many contributions to the arts and condemning its militarism. Burroughs notes that American public opinion is nearly unanimous in its opposition to the invasion of Belgium, and he predicts that great changes will occur in Russia as a result of its participation in "the war for the liberation of humanity.. A vast population however bound & tied cannot be set in motion & swayed by new & great impulse, without being in some manner emancipated from past conditions." Along with a letter dated 20 October 1920 to Rev. L. M. Powers. In part: "I do not recant anything I have said about the Germans, and never shall. No array of words can paint them as black as they were. Probably it is all a lie that they sank the Lusitania, that they bombarded hospitals, that they gassed their enemies, and that their submarines were guilty of unspeakable atrocities! Of course we must accept the Germans as a part of the universe, as we do any other evil.. As individuals I have always liked them, but as a nation, I detest them." With a typed transcript of the article. Paper a little brittle, some pages with small chips and tears. Very Good .

A two-page handwritten letter to drama critic and author William Winters on one side of two sheets of 5-1/2" x 8-1/4" "Riverby" stationery, SIGNED in full by Burroughs at the conclusion. In full: "I have had one letter from you during my long life, but you have had none from me. So I am writing you a line to tell you how much I enjoyed those days with you at the Rowlands. Like all good fruit-- you have grown sweeter as you have grown riper, & I am sure that, unlike some fruit-- you will always be sound at heart. I regret that we did not meet earlier in our lives. Much of your literary output is outside of the field of my interests, which is a narrow one, but I know your English books well & have enjoyed them. It was a delight to hear you recall the old 'Saturday Press' days & the generation of writers to which we both belong. When men reach our age they begin to enjoy the leisure of the spirit & the fret & fever of the world passes them by, I trust that a long serene old age may be the fortune of both of us, & that we may meet again under a happy skies as we did before." With the envelope addressed by Burroughs and annotated by Winters. Creases from mailing; slight fading of ink at the end. Near Fine .
