265 Lot 265: George Washington Signed Book w/ Bookplate George Washington Signed Book w/ Bookplate Lot 265: George Washington Signed Book w/ Bookplate

GEORGE WASHINGTON (1732-1799). Washington was Founding Father, Commander-in-Chief of colonial forces during the American Revolutionary War and the first President of the United States of America. A volume signed by George Washington on the top of the title page. The book a bound copy of the first five issues of Volume One of "The Massachusetts Magazine: or Monthly Museum of Knowledge and Rational Entertainment", published by Isaiah Thomas and Ebenezer T. Andrews of Boston in 1789. The inside front cover has his armorial bookplate and this book was once in his Mount Vernon library. The front endpaper has an inscription reading "Lewis Minor Coleman, Jr./1911/ Presented by his grandmother M.A.MC. from the library of his great-great-grandfather Chief Justice John Marshall". The Massachusetts Magazine, founded in 1789 and published until 1796 by the famous printer Isaiah Thomas, advertised on its title page that it contains "poetry, music, biography, history, physics, geography, morality, criticism, philosophy, mathematics, agriculture, architecture, chemistry, novels, tales, romances, translations, news, marriages, deaths, eteorological observations, etc. etc.". It was founded at the same time as the nation to act as "a kind of thermometer, by which the genius, taste, literature, history, politics, arts, manners, amusements and improvements of the age and nation, may be ascertained". This particular book is important for Washington since it covers the events of 1789 that included his inauguration as the country's first President. For example, page 314 is entitled "Papers relative to the President of the United States" and includes a printing of his Inaugural Address that starts with "Among the vicissitudes incident to life, no event could have filled me with greater anxieties than that of which the notification was transmitted by your order…". It is then followed by "The Address of the Senate to the President of the United States In Answer to his Speech to Both Houses of Congress". On page 286 is a passage entitled "Memoirs of General Washington". In other words, Washington kept this book since it was a "clippings file" of his first year as President. An outstanding Washington signed book with a great association year and terrific content. Front endpaper with inscription reading: Lewis Minor Coleman, Jr./1911/ Presented by his grandmother M.A.M.C. (Mary Ambler Marshall Coleman) from the library of his great-great-grandfather Chief Justice John Marshall. Provenance: The Estate of Charles Boyd Coleman, Jr., Chattanooga, TN, by descent from Lewis Minor Coleman, Jr., son of CSA Lt. Colonel Lewis Minor Coleman and Mary Ambler Marshall, daughter of James K. Marshall and granddaughter of John Marshall (1755-1835). Lewis M. Coleman Jr. was also related to the family of Henry Dearborn by his marriage to Julia Wingate Boyd, daughter of Annette Maria Dearborn Boyd, who was the daughter of Greenleaf Dearborn (1786-1846) and great granddaughter of Henry Dearborn (1751-1829) on her mother's side. Note: John Marshall was the fourth Chief Justice of the United States, serving for thirty-five years. He oversaw landmark decisions such as Marbury v. Madison, McCulloch v. Maryland, Gibbons v. Ogden and the Dartmouth College case. His lifelong friendship with George Washington developed during their Revolutionary War service including the winter at Valley Forge and the battles at Brandywine and Monmouth; he went on to write one of the early biographies of America's first president (see related lots, #263, 264). Description courtesy of Stuart Lutz Historic Documents, Inc. CONDITION: This volume has been rebacked and rebound in leather with new endpapers before 1911 and is in good condition. It appears that the original front cover has been incorporated into the binding and shows some wear. The bookplate has been preserved and is in good condition. The front cover is scuffed. There is a slight tear to the title page nowhere near the dark Washington autograph, and there is toning and spotting to the interior pages. [See more photos →]

109 Lot 109: H. Kittredge, Portrait of Bonnie Scotland & Robert Green, Belle Meade H. Kittredge, Portrait of Bonnie Scotland & Robert Green, Belle Meade Lot 109: H. Kittredge, Portrait of Bonnie Scotland & Robert Green, Belle Meade

The only known lifetime oil portrait of Bonnie Scotland, premier stallion of Belle Meade Plantation, with chief groom Robert "Uncle Bob" Green, painted and dated 1879 by Herbert S. Kittredge (American, 1853- 1881). The iconic painting depicts Bonnie Scotland standing in a field under a partly cloudy blue sky, beside Green, who is attired in a white apron, dark pants and a hat; two trees and a fence are visible in the background. Housed in a molded giltwood frame with title placard front center. Sight – 24" H x 28"W. Framed – 33 1/2" H x 38 1/2"W. Provenance: The Harding Family of Belle Meade Plantation, by descent to present consignor. Note: Most of the Kentucky Derby winners of the twentieth century, and a significant number of other important thoroughbreds, can trace their lineage to Bonnie Scotland. The stallion was foaled in 1853 in Malton, England by Iago out of Queen Mary by Gladiator, and originally owned by William l'Anson. Bonnie Scotland overcame an injury at age 2 and went on to win the Liverpool St. Leger, but collapsed while winning the Doncaster Stakes, and was retired to stud at the age of 3. His great fame ultimately came not as an English racehorse, but as one of America's great sires. He was imported to New York in 1857 by Captain Cornish of Massachusetts and stood at John Reeber's Fashion Stud in Lancaster, Ohio, and Col. W.F. Harper's farm Nantura in Woodford, Kentucky. Other owners included J.C. Simpson of Chicago, Illinois, and C.C. Parks of Waukegan, Illinois. Although the Civil War disrupted the sport of racing in America, Bonnie Scotland spent the early 1860s siring runners that would go on to successful track careers, including Dangerous, Malcolm, Bourbon Belle, and Frogtown. In 1872, General William Harding purchased Bonnie Scotland and brought him to Belle Meade, where the stallion was bred with higher quality mares and established one of the most important sire lines in America. According to American Classic Pedigrees, he was the leading sire in America (1880 and 1882, runner up in 1868 and 1871), and "his progeny were known for good looks, balance, and overall soundness." Clio Hogan's Index to Stakes Winners 1865-1967 credits him with 21 stakes winners. Some of the famous horses from his line include Bramble, Man-O-War, Sea Biscuit, War Admiral, Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Affirmed, and most recently, California Chrome. Bonnie Scotland died at Belle Meade in 1880, one year after this portrait was painted, having helped build Belle Meade's reputation as one of the great thoroughbred horse breeding nurseries in the world. Robert (Bob) Green was in charge of all the thoroughbreds at Belle Meade, a position which earned him international recognition. Born a slave, he was brought to Belle Meade in 1839 and thanks to his skill with horses, he soon became General Harding's right hand man, with four grooms working under his supervision. Green is credited with saving several horses from injury during an ill-fated railroad trip to New York, which was jeopardized by the Johnstown Flood of 1889. Following emancipation, Green became Belle Meade's highest paid employee, declining an offer from Fairview Farm in order to stay on with the Hardings. He led President Grover Cleveland on a tour of Belle Meade in 1887. According to Belle Meade Plantation's website, near the end of his life, Green was forced to move from the property where he had lived and worked for decades. His request to be buried there was granted in 1906, and he rests on the grounds today in an unmarked grave. Artist biography: Herbert Kittredge's untimely death at the age of 28 cut short a blossoming career in sporting art. Little is known about his youth and training. According to the book "Animal and Sporting Artists in America," in 1876, "the noted American thoroughbred breeder Randolph Huntington encouraged [Kittredge] to make equine portraiture his career while living on Huntington's stud in New York. Kittredge was commissioned to execute drawings of Leopard, an Arabian stallion, and Linden Tree, a Barbary stallion, both presented to General Ulysses S. Grant by the Sultan of Turkey in 1879." Kittredge's death at the age of 28 was reported in Wallace's Monthly, which stated in an editorial that "his first serious attempt to delineate a horse, so far as we know, may be found in the MONTHLY for October 1878." The young artist had come to the Wallace offices that year with a letter of introduction from Powell Bros. of Springboro, PA, and amazed the editors with his proofs of engravings of a Powell horse and several others. In fact, the magazine called Kittredge "the greatest and truest of all horse delineators the the world ever produced. We have studied the great masters, ancient and modern, and with the single exception of Rosa Bonheur we have never seen one who could equal Kittredge." (Vol. 8, p. 694). The Hardings of Belle Meade were known to have commissioned works from America's finest sporting artists. Edward Troye (1808-1874) was an early favorite. After Kittredge's death, they engaged artists including Thomas Scott (see lot #111 in this auction) and Canadian-American painter Henry Stull (1851-1913) to paint portraits of their best horses. CONDITION: Painting is in very good condition with no areas of concerning deterioration. Fine to moderate craquelure overall, and canvas has been relined and trimmed. Blacklighting indicates areas of inpainting located near man's arms, under horse, and to right side of sky. Various pinhole losses across top of sky and minor loss to top left corner.

George Washington handwritten letter to John Marshall, congratulating him on his first election to a Federal Office: “With Infinite Pleasure I Received The News Of Your Election…a Few Days Now, Will Give Us The Result Of All The Elections To Congress & The Legislature Of The State”. GEORGE WASHINGTON (1732-1799). Washington was the Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army, President of the Constitutional Convention, signer of the Constitution and First President of the United States. JOHN MARSHALL (1755-1835). Marshall was the fourth Chief Justice, serving for thirty-five years. He oversaw landmark decisions such as Marbury v. Madison, McCulloch v. Maryland, Gibbons v. Ogden and the Dartmouth College case. ALS. 1pg. May 5th, 1799. Mount Vernon. An autograph letter signed “Go:Washington” and accompanied by a free franked address panel also signed “Go:Washington”. The former President wrote to John Marshall, congratulating Marshall on his election to the United States House of Representatives from the Richmond area. Washington hand wrote to the future Chief Justice (missing words are put in brackets): “With infinite pleasure I received the news of your Election. For the Honor of the District, I wish the Majority had been greater, but let us be content, and hope, as the tide is [turning, the current] will soon run strong on our favor. [I am] sorry to find that the publication [you allude to] should have given you a moments [disquiet] I can assure you, it made no im[pression on my] mind, of the tendency apprehend[ed by you]. [The] doubt you have expressed of Mr. [Hancock’s ele]ction, is unexpected as it is pain[ful in these] parts, we had set it down as cer[tain, and our] calculations went to eleven instead of nine. A few days now, will give us the result of all the Elections to Congress & the Legislature of the State; and as you are at the fountain of information respecting the politics of the members, give me, I pray you, the amount of the parties on each side, if you have the leisure & can ascertain them. With very sincere esteem & regards I am–Dear Sir–Yr Obedt & Affect Servt Go:Washington”. The address panel is in WashingtonÂ’s handwriting, and he sent it to “General Marshall in Richmond Go:Washington”; there is additional writing probably by a local postmaster. Includes dedication card reading “Presented to Louis Minor Coleman by his Aunt- Alice Marshall Coleman”, affixed to lower right corner of letter. Letter is mounted to grey card stock board. Letter – 9 3/4″ H x 16 1/4″ W. Board – 10″ H x 16 1/4″ W. Typed letter from Herbert A. Johnson, Associate Editor of “The Papers of John Marshall”, to Charles B. Coleman, Esq., dated February 26, 1968, included in lot. Provenance: The Estate of Charles Boyd Coleman, Jr., Chattanooga, TN, by descent from Lewis Minor Coleman, Jr., son of CSA Lt. Colonel Lewis M. Coleman and Mary Ambler Marshall, daughter of James K. Marshall and granddaughter of John Marshall (1755-1835). Lewis M. Coleman Jr. was related to the family of Henry Dearborn by his marriage to Julia Wingate Boyd, daughter of Annette Maria Dearborn Boyd, who was the daughter of Greenleaf Dearborn (1786-1846) and great granddaughter of Henry Dearborn (1751-1829) on her mother’s side. Note: This was not Marshall’s first political victory. In 1782, he was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates, and remained there for seven years; he was again elected to the Virginia House from 1795 to 1796. In 1788, Marshall served as a delegate to the Virginia convention that ratified the new Federal constitution; Marshall was a staunch supporter of the new government. He declined Washington’s offer of Attorney General. During the Adams administration, he declined an appointment to the Supreme Court, but he represented the United States during the infamous XYZ Affair. His 1799 election to the House of Representatives was his first Federal victory; Marshall was helped because of his support from Patrick Henry. In 1800, President Adams named Marshall Secretary of State and the next year, Adams nominated him to become the fourth Chief Justice. The “Mr. Hancock” mentioned is most likely the Virginia Congressman George Hancock, who served in the House of Representatives from 1793 to 1797. The letter and attached address leaf are glued to a larger board and framed; paper loss affects about twenty words. The Library of Congress owns a letterbook copy of this letter and the missing words can be ascertained. According to The American Book Prices Current (a compendium of auction results), only three Washington to Marshall letters have sold in the past quarter century. A 1968 letter from Herbert Johnson, the Associate Editor of the Papers Of John Marshall, states “This is such an important letter that I know you value it highly. As you may know Washington was the most important influence that impelled Marshall to stand for election in the House of Representatives. This was his first domestic office with the national government and from it he moved to the State Department and then the Chief Justiceship…Washington’s request that Marshall provide him with the Virginia election returns–another indication of Marshall’s position in the Federalist party in Virginia…”. An additional letter included in this lot is dated June 1913 from United States senator/historian Albert J. Beveridge and reads, “Dear Mr. Coleman: Miss Lizzie Marshall of Leeds, VA informed me that you have some letters of Chief Justice Marshall – one of them from George Washington.” (Beveridge states he is gathering material to write the The Life of John Marshall and would like copies of the letters.). A great association between the first President and the great Chief Justice. Description courtesy of Stuart Lutz Historic Documents, Inc. CONDITION: Overall good condition.

Biography (courtesy AskArt: The Artists' Bluebook): Known for his American portraits of historical interest, William Hubard was born in Warwick, England. In 1824, his early talent for cutting likenesses in paper resulted in him being brought to the United States. Gilbert Stuart persuaded Hubard to begin oil portraits, and with the encouragement of fellow artist Thomas Sully, he set up a studio as a portrait painter in 1829. He exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the Boston Athanaeum. Between 1838 and 1851, he added genre and historical themes to his repertoire and in 1850 began sculpture. He built a foundry to produce bronzes of Jean-Antoine Houdon's marble statue of George Washington, but they sold poorly, leaving him in search of ways to supplement his income. When the Civil War began, Hubard retrofitted his foundry to manufacture rifles for the Confederacy, but was killed in an accidental explosion there.

The subject holds a brush tinged with whitewash or white glue and a paint pail, and just behind him, on the wall, is posted the front page of the Louisville Commercial Newspaper (1869-1902). Signed lower left margin "W F". Unframed. 26 3/4" H x 21 3/4" W. Exhibited, The Howard Steamboat Museum "Fall Into Art" exhibit, 2010. Provenance: Estate of Lynn Scholl Renau, Louisville, Kentucky. Note: Lynn Renau was awarded the Isaac Murphy Award for her groundbreaking research about slavery and African American history in Kentucky. This painting, which hung over her desk, was among her most prized pieces. Frye's decision to title the newspaper "The Louisville Commercial" and give it such visual prominence is significant, especially when viewed beside his working class, African American subject. Founded by the DuPont family in 1870, The Louisville Commercial was the only Republican daily newspaper in Kentucky, and it also circulated in Southern Indiana and Middle and West Tennessee. According to one period description quoted in "Chronicling America," "its rigorous exposure of corruption and wastefulness in municipal affairs has given it strong local popularity and influence; it is a favorite in families and with business men, and the saloons and gambling dens are bitterly hostile towards it." Biderman DuPont, sole owner of the paper by 1874, had supported the Union cause and in an 1860 letter to his mother, wrote that "Slavery is a moral evil…." (source: Timothy J. Mullin, "The du Ponts in Kentucky," DLSC Faculty Publications, Western Kentucky University, 2009). In an 1873 ad the newspaper boasted it had "met the Democratic papers at every point and exposed their misstatements" (American Newspaper Directory, Vol. 4). Biography: "George Wilhelm (William) Frye (1822-1872) was a portrait artist from Germany who established a studio in Huntsville, Madison County; he also painted in Arkansas, Kentucky, and Tennessee. His depictions of life in the western Black Belt of Alabama were important records of the antebellum period in the state. He also tutored future Alabama artist Maria Howard Weeden for two years. Historians are able to follow his career through court records and the newspaper advertisements Frye placed in Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Tennessee; several advertisements in Alabama newspapers announce his relocations. By 1845, Frye had settled in Louisville, Kentucky, where he painted portraits, and he opened a second studio in Huntsville by March 1847 while maintaining the Louisville location at least into 1848. On May 18, 1848, he married Virginia Hale in Hunstville; the couple would have four children. He became a U.S. citizen on August 29, 1854, in Madison County. During the next several years, Frye opened temporary studios in numerous locations around the South, including Memphis, Tennessee, and advertised his services there for four months in 1857. Frye's growing reputation as a portrait painter prompted the Agricultural and Horticultural Society Fair of West Alabama to enlist him as a fine arts judge in 1859".

A series of drafts related to the 1834 revision of the TN State Constitution (adopted 1835) with hand written notes, presumably used during the Constitutional Convention.

Probably printed 1834. 2) Two page printed document on the duties of the President or chairman of the committee. 3) Pages 8-11, loose, annotated. 4) Articles 2-11, bound but apparently detached, annotated. 5) Draft believed to be #1, articles 2-11. 6) Five pages of Briefs, front and back, handwritten. 1/2 page glued to the bottom of another. 7) Amendments and Alterations, printed copy, prob. from draft #1. 8) Bound pages labeled "In Convention," dated July 25, 1834, with a few strikeouts only on p. 15, article 9, section 4. 9) Printed copy of the Constitution as amended August 1834, unmarked, 13 1/2" x 8 1/8". Note: Tennessee's first constitution was adopted in 1796 in Knoxville by a convention of 55 delegates. According to historian J. G. M. Ramsey, Thomas Jefferson, author of the United States Constitution, described the Tennessee constitution as the “least imperfect and most republican of the state constitutions.” In 1834, a state constitutional convention was held in Nashville with 60 delegates in attendance and presided over by William Carter. It revised the constitution to reflect the state's growing population (more than 6 times its size in 1796) and to update the court system and address some of the problems in the original constitution. This revision was centered mainly on taxation to reflect the state's increasingly urban nature and the courts (providing for a state Supreme Court with three judges, one from each grand division of the state). It also required the legislature to cherish literature and science and established the common school fund. Although anti-slavery advocates petitioned the convention to abolish slavery, their efforts were rebuffed, and in fact the delegates specifically limited suffrage to white males, disenfranchising free black men (who had the right to vote under the 1796 constitution). The next revision of the Tennessee State Constitution (which would abolish slavery) would not take place until 1870, after the Civil War. Provenance: The estate of Dr. Benjamin H. Caldwell, Nashville, Tennessee. CONDITION: All items with toned paper, minor chipping to edges, scattered foxing and small ink stains, overall good condition. [See more photos →]

Includes envelope with Samuel P. Langley stamp. Note: "Al Hirschfeld (1903-2003) was a well-known caracaturist and a friend of Beauford. Little detail is available about their relationship, but it is evident that Hirschfeld (and his wife, Dolly) were very fond of Beauford and supportive of him as well. Beauford met Hirschfeld in New York, when Beauford was working as a doorman at the Whitney Studio Galleries (which would become the Whitney Museum). They became friends, and Beauford would go on to sketch Hirschfeld and paint his portrait. Hirschfeld was a part of Beauford's life during the "New York Years," socializing with him and introducing him to people who would become Beauford's patrons and friends as well. He and his wife would also visit Beauford several times in Paris. Hirschfeld, Don Freeman, and other friends helped Beauford through a period of depression that began at the end of 1941. Hirschfeld contributed funds for the ticket that Beauford purchased to sail to France in 1953 and arranged for Beauford to meet people in the art gallery world once he arrived in Paris. He introduced Beauford to Sergei Radamsky, a singer and music teacher with whom Beauford would travel through Europe in 1954. When Beauford needed medical care after his suicide attempt in 1961, Hirschfeld was among the many friends that sent money to settle Beauford's hospital bill".

259 Lot 259: 1 John Marshall Signed Letter to Son, dated 1832 1 John Marshall Signed Letter to Son, dated 1832 Lot 259: 1 John Marshall Signed Letter to Son, dated 1832

Handwritten letter from John Marshall (1755-1835), 4th Chief Justice of the United States. ALS. 2pg. September 18, 1832. No place. A lengthy autograph letter signed "J Marshall" to his son James K. Marshall. He communicated about financial matters, and wrote in part: "After writing to you it occurred to me that the money for Mr. Hicks and Mr. Ambler might be required immediately, and that you might have written to them that it was deposited in the bank. Under this impression I requested Mr. Lynch, the backer, to sell two shares for the most he could get, but not to sell more than two for less–This would leave you 111.50. He has departed somewhat from instructions and has sold thirteen shares for 111.75 leaving you 111.25. I am confident that more cannot now be obtained, and am not sure that this price will hold. The rise is to be attributed to the opinion that the Bank of the United States will not be rechartered, and–speculation on a great rise in state stock when the present charter shall expire. All this is speculation. I was under the necessity of employing a broker as I could not, in the present state of things, have found a purchaser myself–I shall sell the remaining three shares at the same price is an opportunity offers unless you direct otherwise, and shall place the money to the credit of the Farmer's bank in Winchester". Marshall was correct; the Second Bank of the United States, which was a campaign issue in 1832 (and vehemently opposed by Andrew Jackson) was not rechartered; it became private in 1836 and liquidated in 1841. The letter has mailing folds and dark ink. The address leaf, completed in the Chief Justice's handwriting, is still attached although the top third of it is missing but not affecting any words. 7 5/8" H x 6 3/8" W. Provenance: The Estate of Charles Boyd Coleman, Jr., Chattanooga, TN, by descent from Lewis Minor Coleman, Jr., son of CSA Lt. Colonel Lewis M. Coleman and Mary Ambler Marshall, daughter of James K. Marshall and granddaughter of John Marshall (1755-1835). Lewis M. Coleman Jr. was also related to the family of General Henry Dearborn by his marriage to Julia Wingate Boyd, daughter of Annette Maria Dearborn Boyd, who was the daughter of Greenleaf Dearborn (1786-1846) and great granddaughter of Henry Dearborn (1751-1829) on her mother's side.

Handwritten letter from John Marshall (1755-1835), 4th Chief Justice of the United States. ALS. 2pg. Marsh 11, 1829. Washington. An autograph letter signed "J Marshall" as Chief Justice to his wife Polly. He wrote in part: "I am very much gratified yesterday at receiving a letter from my Grand daughter giving me all the news of Richmond, and that which was more delightful than any other–that your health was as good as usual. Tell her I am much obliged by her letter, and very much pleased to find she writes so agreeably. I did not perceive a single fault in her letter. I was very much surprised the other day on my return from court to be met to Jacqueline. He staid [sic] a day or two in the city and surpized [sic] me still more by the object of his visit than by his visit itself. He came to purchase a carriage and a pair of horses, and did actually make the purchase. I did not see either the carriage or horses–I was never more closely occupied than I am this winter and have been from the commencement of the court. Mornings seem to agree with me. I eat hearty and sleep soundly. If I could take a peep every now and them at our dear fire side and my dearer wife I should be quite content. I am happy however, at least comparatively so, to know that you are well. May Heaven keep you so. Farewell my dearest wife. Your J Marshall". The letter has mailing folds and dark ink. The address leaf, completed in Marshall's handwriting, is still attached. 8" H x 6 1/4" W. Provenance: The Estate of Charles Boyd Coleman, Jr., Chattanooga, TN, by descent from Lewis Minor Coleman, Jr., son of CSA Lt. Colonel Lewis M. Coleman and Mary Ambler Marshall, daughter of James K. Marshall and granddaughter of John Marshall (1755-1835). Lewis M. Coleman Jr. was also related to the family of General Henry Dearborn by his marriage to Julia Wingate Boyd, daughter of Annette Maria Dearborn Boyd, who was the daughter of Greenleaf Dearborn (1786-1846) and great granddaughter of Henry Dearborn (1751-1829) on her mother's side. Note: "Marshall family tradition relates that John Marshall fell in love with Mary Ambler soon after meeting her. After spending time with her at many dances, Marshall asked the sixteen year old to marry him. Becoming flustered, Mary refused. She quickly realized her error and sent a cousin riding after Marshall to give him a lock of her hair. Marshall returned the lock of hair, entwined with a lock of his own, which was encased in a locket. They were soon married after a short courtship. Mary Marshall wore the locket until shortly before her death in 1831. She gave the locket back to Marshall who wore it as a reminder of her until his death in 1835. He wrote a year after her death "I have lost her! And with her I have lost the solace of my life! Yet she remains still the companion of my retired hours–still occupies my inmost bosom. When I am alone and unemployed, my mind unceasingly turns to her'". (Source: https://preservationvirginia.org/visit/property-detail/mary-willis-ambler-polly-marshall).

An autograph letter signed "J Marshall" as Chief Justice to his son James Keith Marshall. The great jurist wrote an intriguing legal letter that states in part: "I received your letter respecting the trespass on the mountain the day before I left Richmond. You require no authority in writing from me to proceed in my name against them. If I do not disavow your act no person can inquire into it. As it will be performed in my name it must be considered as if done by myself. But to remove your scruples I hereby constitute you James K. Marshall my attorney in fact with full power for me and in my name to institute actions of trespass or any other action or actions against any person or persons who shall enter upon any lands to which I have a legal title–". The address leaf, completed by Marshall, is included; the letter has mailing folds and is in fine condition. 2nd item: Autograph document signed "Joseph Tate Chairman" written just four days after Marshall's death.

Includes a black wooden frame with Edwards Art Store, Chattanooga, TN stamp en verso. Letter – 8 7/8" H x 7 1/2" W. Framed – 9 3/4" H x 8 1/4" W.

Blair. The group met every Saturday afternoon from May to November at Reverend John Buchanan'­s farm and the men were no strangers to having a good time. They feasted on barbecued pig and drank punch and juleps. Talking about politics was strictly prohibited at these gatherings. Rule breakers were punished by Marshall with a hefty fine – alcohol".

257 Lot 257: Joseph Loring Silver Cup, Dearborn Family History Joseph Loring Silver Cup, Dearborn Family History Lot 257: Joseph Loring Silver Cup, Dearborn Family History

Federal coin silver cup or beaker, molded rim with tapering sides, monogrammed HD presumably for Major General Henry Dearborn (1750-1829). Maker's mark J. Loring in script within a cartouche to the base (Joseph Loring, Boston, b. 1747- d. 1815). Inscription on the base reads, J. E. D. C. / A. M. D. B. (Annette Maria Dearborn Boyd) / Sept. 1858, Sept. 1883. 3" H. 2.660 troy ouces. Provenance: The Estate of Charles Boyd Coleman, Jr., Chattanooga, TN, by descent from Annette Maria Dearborn Boyd, daughter of Greenleaf Dearborn (1786-1846) and Pamela Augusta Gilman (1802-1880); Gilman was the granddaughter of Major General Henry Dearborn (1751-1829). Annette married Charles Harrod Boyd and had four children including Julia Wingate Boyd (wife of Lewis Minor Coleman, Jr.). Lewis Minor Coleman was the son of CSA Lt. Colonel Lewis Minor Coleman and Mary Ambler Marshall, granddaughter of John Marshall (1755-1835), fourth Chief Justice of the United States. Silversmith Joseph Loring is believed to have apprenticed with Benjamin Burt or Paul Revere in Boston, MA circa 1756, and worked from 1765 to 1813 as a silversmith and jeweler in Boston MA. Like Revere, he was a patriot. Loring served as a Lieutenant during the American Revolution and accompanied Paul Revere during his ride to Concord, during which he was captured by the British. His association with Revere continued after his apprenticeship, and it is possible Loring retailed some pieces for Revere ("that Revere's shop supplied other silversmiths with stock for resale is documented in his ledgers" – p. 193, Early American Silver in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Additional ref. Francis Hill Bigelow, Historic Silver of the Colonies and its Makers; Register 1902, The Order of the Founders and Patriots of America).

The newly-formed business took over the idled brewery at 22nd Street and Avenue E operated by the Birmingham Brewing Company, which went bankrupt during the financial panic of 1893. In 1906 the company acquired additional property on Powell Avenue and engaged the firm of Wheelock, Joy & Wheelock to design a commercial building that could be leased to William Wise to operate a saloon. Jefferson County residents voted on October 28, 1907 to enact a local prohibition on alcohol sales. The brewery was given until May 28 to dispose of its stock and ended up pouring 300 barrels into the street that day. The owners continued doing business as an ice manufacturer until 1917".

Large Civil War archive, related to Captain C. B. Huggins (5th Regiment, Tennessee Infantry) of Murfreesboro, TN, and William C. Medders (24th Regiment, Tennessee Infantry, Company G, rank in Private, rank out First Lieutenant), plus some post war correspondence and publications, 83 items total. 1st-66th items: Sixty-six (66) Civil War letters, and commissary documents, and military orders related to Captain C. B. Huggins (1822-1910) of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Includes a letter from Major R. Wilson to Captain C. B. Huggins, Loudon, TN, dated July 19, 1863, notifying Huggins of his appointment to the Commissary Department and ordering Huggins, if he accepts the position to "return to D.H.C. Spencer Chief C.F. of 4th District of Tenn. at Shelbyville the enclosed Bond and Oath and report to him for duty". There are many documents concerning the movement of goods and cattle throughout Tennessee. There are also letters to C. B. Huggins regarding cattle for General Forrest's command. Most receipts and orders involve moving and buying cattle. In a letter from J. M. Johnston to Capt. Huggins, dated May 9th, 1865, Johnston writes "The yanks came here yesterday under a flag of truce, remained 3 hours and left. They order all soldiers to report by the 20th instant. They will treat them as outlaws after that time". The book "Notable Men of Tennessee, with Portraits," by Judge John Allison gives this biographical information about C.B. Huggins: "Our subject’s boyhood days were spent in his native county, where he received limited educational advantages. He began his business career as clerk in a mercantile establishment, and afterward engaged in the grocery business two years with J. W. Nelson, in Lebanon, Tenn., and then returned to Murfreesboro, and after clerking a number of years, engaged in the dry goods business with Isaac Lohman, and afterward with his father and brother in the grocery business, continuing until 1857. Mr. Huggins was in the commissary department of the Confederate Army after the battle of Stones River until the surrender. Since that time he has followed different occupations. He was connected with the First National and Stone River Bank as teller, but of late years has devoted his time and means to general trading and speculation". The Huggins family went on to start a long-running Coca Cola Bottling Plant in Murfreesboro in what was originally a waterworks and ice plant, opened in 1902. 67th-73rd items: Seven (7) Civil War letters from William C. Medders, 24th Regiment, Tennessee Infantry, Company G. Six of the letters are addressed to Mr. H. C. Medders, his father, and one of the letters is written to his sister, Miss Linney Medders, Hillsboro, TN. The dates of the letters range from August 1862-April 1863 from various locations in Middle and East Tennessee, including one letter dated August 5, 1862, written in a camp near Chattanooga, four letters dated March 28, April 2, 10, and 20, written in camps near Shelbyville, TN, one letter dated October 27 186_ [exact date illegible], and one undated letter with no location. The August 5, 1862 letter refers to the regiment's participation in battles in Mississippi: "I saw J. W. Johnson the day that we left Tupelo he was well at the time…". The April 2, 1863 letter provides a glimpse into camp activities, his approximate location, and the general morale of the soldiers reading "I herd [sic] some commanding yesterday the Boys are generally well at this time we hav [sic] to drill twice (?) a day we think it is hard to drill all the time I don't no [sic] how mutch [sic] closter [sic] we [are] to Railrode [sic] yet i [sic] will find out…". The April 10, 1863 letter refers to the attempted capture of Brigadier General John Hunt Morgan by Union troops in McMinnville, TN, mid-April 1863, reading "we herd [sic] the yankees run Morgan out of McMinville [sic ]last Saturday, and if that be so we will leave hear purty [sic] soon, I can't say where we will go". In the same letter he also gives their approximate location stating "I [can't] tell whether we hav [sic] got any closter [sic] to Wartrace or not I think it is about 7 miles and it is 7 miles to Shelbyville from Wartrace…". The majority of the letters, written while Medders was stationed in camps away from fighting, contain assurances that he is well, inquiries about the family, and requests for his mother to knit him socks and for his father to buy him a horse. Note: "The Twenty-fourth Tennessee (Confederate) Regiment was organized in June 1861, at Camp Anderson, near Murfreesboro, and comprised twelve companies raised in the counties of Williamson, Rutherford, Maury, Bedford, Coffee, Smith, DeKalb, Sumner, Hickman and Perry. It was first commanded by Col. R D Allison, and later by Col. Bratton and Col. John Wilson. It moved into Kentucky and was stationed at Cave City in October. At this time it was in Col. Shaver's brigade of Hardee's division. It was in Gen. Strahl's brigade during the most of the war. It participated in the pitched battle of Shiloh, losing many, and was reorganized at or near Corinth; thence moved via Chattanooga on the Kentucky campaign, and was severely engaged at Perryville. It then retreated with Bragg's army, and on December 31, 1862, participated in the charge at Murfreesboro, losing again heavily. It moved south, and in September, 1863, was engaged at Chickamauga, and later participated at Missionary Ridge. In 1864 it was in all the leading engagements in the famous Georgia campaign, and in the aggregate lost heavily. It moved with Hood's army to Jonesboro; thence to Tennessee, where it participated at Franklin and Nashville; thence moved to North Carolina, and in the spring of 1865 surrendered at Greensboro". (From "Goodspeed's History of East Tennessee", 1887). 74th-80th items: Seven (7) post Civil War letters including one letter from Daniel Medders, Burkesville, KY, to his brother possibly William C. Medders, dated March 12, 1871. Also includes three letters and one page of poetry all appearing to have been written by the same individual identified by the initials "T. T.", "T.T.T.", "T.A.T.", and "S. I. T.", addressed to Thomas B. Brown, one dated May 15, 1869. The individual, who indicates that she is a woman in the dated letter, addresses Brown as "Kind Friend" in one undated letter, only to revert to a more formal address in the dated letter that appears to be the last she wrote to him. Addressing a misunderstanding that occurred between them in the dated letter, she writes "I did not think that you would take offense at a few verses, intended for fun…thinking that it would amuse you, I sent it to you…I had no claims on you, but those of friendship, and now I am sorry I have not that. As to your not marrying, I do not blame you for that, I do not think less of you for that, I do not wish to marry myself not never have in all my life…Please, Tom, do this much for one who has ever been your friend, It is all I ask, Never hurt another one of my sex as you have me. May God forgive you, as freely as I do. Adieu S. I. T. _". Also includes two Coffee County, TN tax receipts for Thomas B. Brown, dated December 4, 1871, and December 1873. 81st-83rd items: Three (3) Civil War related publications: "The Mansion and The Cabin" by Mary Y.

637 Lot 637: Silk embroidered memorial, Southern Silk embroidered memorial, Southern Lot 637: Silk embroidered memorial, Southern

Early 19th century watercolor and embroidered silk mourning picture, attributed to Margaret Brock of Abbeville, South Carolina (1794-1853). Oval vignette features a female figure standing beneath a weeping willow tree, beside an urn and pedestal which reads “In memory of MAB who departed 1794”. Banner above reads “Not Lost but Gone Before”. The corners of the work are decorated with watercolor flowers and cherubs; script above reads “In death remembered as in life beloved”. Later giltwood molded frame. 19″ x 16 1/4″ sight, 22″ x 19 1/4″ framed. Handwritten inscription verso “Roxie Campbell / 200 E. 1st Ave. Lenoir City Tenn”. Note taped below from Bobbie Chambers Nash, dated 1982, recounts that she found the work in the attic of a Knoxville TN home owned by her brother Dr. Shirley Coleman Chambers and thought it might have belonged to the home’s previous owners. However, recent research by the Tennessee Sampler Survey shows that Roxie (Chambers) Campbell and her siblings, Bobbie Chambers Nash and Shirley Chambers, were descended from Margaret Brock Chambers, born Aug. 27, 1794 in Abbeville, SC. It is possible Margaret made the piece in memory of her mother, who likely died in childbirth. Margaret Brock Chambers married William Chambers in 1808 in Georgia and died in Banks County, GA in 1853. Provenance: the estate of Celia (Cece) Webb, Nashville, Tennessee. CONDITION: General fading and background discoloration, two 3/4″ tears upper left corner; a few scattered dark stains, largest 1″ L. Scattered folds. Not glued down. [See more photos →]

Caldwell, Nashville, Tennessee. Biography (courtesy Askart: The Artists' Bluebook): Wildner was born in Germany but moved to Detroit with his family as a child and then, as a teenager, to Nashville. He served in the Army in 1944 and went on to study art briefly at the Meinzinger Art School in Detroit. He returned to Nashville to practice commercial art, but by the mid-1950s had decided to pursue his own art career. Whimsical animals and fantastical, often grotesque creatures were a recurring theme of his work. Wildner met with critical and commercial success after a 1962 exhibit of his art at the Nashville site now known as Cheekwood. However, the death of his parents and collapse of his marriage in the 1970s led him to become reclusive in the last two decades of his life. Provenance: The estate of Dr. Benjamin H.

255 Lot 255: 3 Woodrow Wilson Signed Letters 3 Woodrow Wilson Signed Letters Lot 255: 3 Woodrow Wilson Signed Letters

Three (3) President Woodrow Wilson typed letters signed "Woodrow Wilson" as President and written on "The White House" letterhead. The 1913 letters were addressed to Lewis M. Coleman, U.S. District Attorney for East Tennessee, Chattanooga, TN, dated June 24, July 1, and July 24, 1913. The letters refer to Coleman's desire to appoint State Senator Lewis Shepard Pope (1878-1972) as Coleman's Assistant U.S. District Attorney for East TN. In the June 24 letter, Wilson writes "My dear Coleman, May I make this suggestion about the appointment of your subordinates: That you appoint no one who is a member of the present legislature of the State? I find we are apt to be tangled with a good deal of that sort of thing unless we resist it pretty steadily. The laws of most states forbid such appointments to state officers, and I think it would be wise for us to observe the principle of those laws in our federal appointments. I need not tell you what genuine pleasure it gave me to send your name into the Senate for District Attorney. In haste Faithfully yours, Woodrow Wilson". The July 1 letter is a direct follow-up to Coleman's response to the June 24 letter, reading "My dear Lewis: Of course, I did not intend to embarrass or limit you, and if you feel as you do about Mr. Pope of Pikeville, you may be sure I shall approve of your action. All I wanted was to suggest was a general policy. In haste, with warmest regard, Faithfully yours, Woodrow Wilson". The lengthier July 24 letter reiterates Wilson's reservations regarding Pope's appointment, stating "My dear Lewis: [Tennessee] Senator [Luke] Lea ([1879-1945)] came in to see me yesterday and made certain statements concerning Mr. Pope…He said that Mr. Pope was one of the men in the Senate of the State who took part by his vote in preventing a thorough investigation of certain malfeasances in office which it had long been the demand of the public should be uncovered and dealt with. I, of course, know nothing of the circumstances, and I have not retained in my mind the details of the matter as Senator Lea related them to me. The sum and substance of it is, he believes that Mr. Pope ignored the pledges under which he was acting as representative of the people (pledges which he had explicitly made that he would facilitate the necessary investigations). I hope with all my heart that you are enjoying the duties of your new office. I think of you very often. Cordially and faithfully yours, Woodrow Wilson". Letters do not include envelopes. Approximately 9" H x 7 1/8" W. Provenance: The Estate of Charles Boyd Coleman, Jr., Chattanooga, TN, by descent from the Lewis M. Coleman (subject of this letter, b. 1861). Note: The Lewis M. Coleman of this letter (b. 1861) was the son of CSA Lt. Colonel Lewis Minor Coleman (1827-1863) and Mary Ambler Marshall, granddaughter of John Marshall (1755-1835), fourth Chief Justice of the United States. His wife was Julia Wingate Boyd, daughter of Annette Maria Dearborn Boyd, daughter of Greenleaf Dearborn (1786-1846) and great granddaughter of Major General Henry Dearborn (1751-1829) on her mother's side. Description courtesy of Stuart Lutz Historic Documents, Inc. CONDITION: Letters in overall good condition with light toning, fold lines, few minute foxing spots, to be expected from age.

280 Lot 280: KY document archive inc Adair signed KY document archive inc Adair signed Lot 280: KY document archive inc Adair signed

Archive of mostly Kentucky related documents, including legal documents related to early Jefferson County settler Richard Chenoweth (who lost several family members and whose wife was scalped in the notorious Chenoweth Massacre of 1789), plus documents bearing signatures of KY Governor John Adair and Mississippi Governor Tilghman M. Tucker, along with numerous other documents, about 60 total. The archive includes an 1822 acquittal signed by Governor John Adair in the case of James K. Welch, who was fined $136 by the Jefferson Circuit Court "for permitting a nuisance to remain in his cellar". Counter signed by J. Cabell Breckenridge, Secretary, and Worden Pope, clerk. Also included is an 1869 Civil War pension application and reciept for Elizabeth Mitchell, widow of Union Lt. Col. Samuel Mitchell. The dozen or so Chenoweth documents appear to be related to a 1797-1801 court case involving Chenoweth (1735-1802) and Thomas Curry vs. James Denny (Denney). They include a manuscript copy of a land survey for Chenoweth, dated 1783-1785, with hand drawn map, for 2000 acres in Jefferson County along the west branch of Floyd's Fork; and an 1801 Kentucky Court of Appeals judgement in a court case finding "manifest error has occurred to the great damage of the said [Richard] Chenoweth and [Thomas] Curry", defendants in the case brought by James Denny over a land dispute, ordering the error "should be corrected in due manner and that full and speedy justice should be done to the parties in this behalf". The order is signed by Achilles Sneed, clerk of the Court of Appeals from 1801 until he was ousted in 1824 as a result of the Old Court-New Court controversy. (In that controversy, the Kentucky General Assembly abolished the Kentucky Court of Appeals, the state's highest court at that time, and replaced it with a new court. The justices refused to recognize the validity of that action, and for a time, two separate courts operated as the court of last resort in Kentucky, pushing the state to the brink of Civil War. Sneed refused a legislative mandate to turn over his records to the New Court by January 1825, so Francis Blair, the New Court clerk, assembled a group that broke into Sneed's office and took what records they could find; Sneed was subsequently charged with contempt of court). This archive also includes numerous other documents related to court cases from 1785 through 1871 and some documents from Mississippi, Maryland and Louisiana (including one signed by New Orleans mayor William Freret in 1841), a marriage certification for William Wisehart and Mary Hines of Hamilton County, Ohio, signed by Peter Bell; and a freight receipt for wares (including sugar and earthenware) transported between New Orleans and Louisville. Note that one document bears a 20th century purple stamp "Old Circuit Common Law". Some of the documents, including one with "signatures" of Richard Chenoweth and wife Margaret, appear to be old manuscript copies. CONDITION: Most documents are toned and fragile, with separations at fold lines ranging from 1/4" to full separations. Tucker, Roman, Freret and Adair documents have fold separations but unaffected bold signatures. The Chenoweth land survey document has stains to entire right edge. Note that one group of documents is extremely fragile, and contains several fragments. [See more photos →]

Housed in abandoned Union hospital barracks, Fisk set out to educate former slaves with the support of donations from former abolitionists. As those donations declined over the next five years, Fisk fell on hard times. To save the institution, Fisk’s treasurer, George Leonard White, decided to gamble on the extraordinary voices of the young black singers who had begun to share with him the songs of their ancestors. In 1871, over the objections of his colleagues and sponsors, White and his assistant, a young African American pianist named Ella Sheppard, led a choir of nine young former slaves (now called the Fisk Jubilee Singers) from Nashville to perform for congregations in the North along the route of the Underground Railway".
