Second edition.

A pro-segregation book. At the 1906 session of the Council of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the diocese of Arkansas, it was resolved "that the plan of the Bishop of the Diocese looking to the creation of an autonomous Afro-American Church, be and hereby is approved." The Bishop believed that religion was the only realm in which African Americans could achieve the self-government which, he writes, is essential to solving the race question. He sets out to answer the criticisms of his plan from various quarters and also specifies where the "color line" should be drawn in all areas of American life.

The publisher's lengthy ad is for the Bishop's previous book "The Church for Americans". Fair .

Gallatin County, Kentucky, November 14, 1836. 1836. - Over 125 words penned in a secretarial or clerk's hand on 7 inch high by 7-1/2 inch wide buff paper.

Butler, the clerk of Gallatin County and additionally docketed in a faint unknown hand. Folded twice horizontally and once vertically with a small tear along the lower horizontal fold and a couple of tiny holes to the middle fold. There is some minor darkening along the top and left edges with a small spot of foxing to the lower margin. Very good. The document reads thus: "Know all men by these presents that we Eliza M.

The condition of the above obligation is such that whereas the above bound Barrett has this day emancipated a Negro Girl named Laura Young now slave to the said Barrett save harmless and indemnify [_] County Court against the support of said Negro slave then the above obligation to be Void Else to remain in full force."

Barrett lived in the household of Horatio Turpin in Kentucky. Philip Osborne Turpin (1808-1882) was one of Horatio's sons. Philip Turpin was elected from Gallatin County to serve as a representative in the State legislature. He served one term in 1833. Richard P. Butler (1782-1885), who endorsed the document on the verso, was the clerk of Gallatin County in Kentucky. Butler fought in the War of 1812 and was considered an important figure in the organization of the "New" Gallatin County which was created in 1820 when the legislature gave up some of its land to the newly formed Owen County. There is a letter at The School of Arts and Science, University of Rochester dated August 21, 1838 from Laura Young in Columbia, Virginia to Mary Ann Turpin in Gallatin County, Kentucky. In the letter she refers to Eliza Barrett: "My mistress is not well but as composed as you might expect. She is thinking about returning to Kentucky and says she believes Master Osburn will have to build her a cabin near himself. Very good .

The author of this biography, Elias Ahira Calkins [1828-1904], was a newspaper editor and publisher and a veteran of the Civil War who was mustered out with the rank of lieutenant colonel. Calkins began his career in Milwaukee and Madison, Wisconsin, becoming an editorial writer and newspaper publisher. When the war broke out he organized the Third Wisconsin cavalry and saw service in Missouri and Arkansas. He won praise for his conduct at Prairie Grove, Ark. and Rocky Bluff, Mo. in 1862. After the war he resumed his career as an editorial writer and newspaper editor and publisher, first in Wisconsin and later in Chicago. A lifelong Democrat, Calkins was described in his Chicago Chronicle obituary as "a valiant soldier and a leading citizen..a pioneer journalist and a brilliant, farseeing political economist."

Philo White [1796-1883 was a politician and newspaperman. After publishing the Western Carolinian [1820-1830] and the Raleigh Standard [1834-1836], he helped to establish and edited the Milwaukee Sentinel. He then went into politics and was a member of the Wisconsin Territorial Legislature and for a year a member of the first state Senate for a year.

Typed Note Signed by the Director of the Town Hall League Robert Erskine Ely, Regretting That He Can't Attend Maeterlinck's Lecture.
New York, December 29, 1919. 1919. - Approximately 40 words typed on 10 inch high by 8 inch wide "The League for Political Education" stationery, with the organization's name and the names of its substantial board of trustees and officers printed at the top. In his note, addressed to James B. Pond, Ely regrets that he won't be able to attend Maeterlinck's lecture as he will be out of the country. Signed "Robert E. Ely" in black ink. Folded for mailing with minor chipping to the top left corner. Very good. The Presbyterian minister Robert Erskine Ely (1861-1948) helped found the Prospect Union at Cambridge, Massachusetts and became the first director of The League for Political Education, which was later renamed the Town Hall League. Under Ely, the league organized series of lectures by eminent figures at the Town Hall. Founded by Eleanor Butler Sanders as a pro-women's suffrage group, The League for Political Education devoted itself to providing a forum where all people could be educated about the political, social and economic issues of the day. The league fought for passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which granted women the right to vote. Opening up membership to men and women, the league commissioned the building of New York's Town Hall and supported the broadcast of America's Town Meeting of the Air. James B. Pond, the American impresario and lecture agent who headed the J.B. Pond Lyceum Bureau, brought the great Belgian poet Maurice Maeterlinck to America for a series of lectures. The first lecture took place at Carnegie hall on January 2nd, 1920. Unfortunately Maeterlinck failed to carry out his intention to lecture in English because of his labored "phonetic" English. He declared his intention to continue his lectures in French and have the translation read by another person. As a result, the lecture tour was a failure and lawsuits ensued on both sides. Very good .
