SAMUEL F. B. MORSE - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 06/21/1854:

He signs an autograph letter (1854) to Samuel Colgate requesting proxy votes from him, apparently to forestall a hostile takeover.

ALS: "Saml. F.B. Morse", 1 page, 7¾x9¾. Po[ugh]'keepsie, New York, 1854 June 21. To businessman and philanthropist Samuel Colgate. In full: "Will you and your brother give me your proxies in blank as below for the next meeting of the Stockholders of the New York Albany and Buffalo Teleg Co. We wish to be prepared against an intrigue of the pirates. I will explain more fully when I see you." Beneath his letter, Morse has written the sample form he mentions. In full: "We hereby constitute [blank] to be our proxy to vote our Stock at the next annual meeting of the N. York, Albany & Buffalo Telegraph Company. New York June [blank] 1854". Note at bottom, probably by Colgate: "Ans 24 June/54...." In 1844, SAMUEL F.B. MORSE (1791-1872) had successfully sent the first telegraph message, "What hath God wrought!", from Washington, D.C. to Baltimore. In this letter, the "pirates" Morse mentions are probably Hiram Sibley and Judge Samuel L. Selden of the New York and Mississippi Valley Printing Telegraph Company (NYMVPTC), a primary competitor of his existing New York, Albany and Buffalo Telegraph Company, formed in 1851. Read More...

TLS: "Greg Jarvis", 1p, 8½x11. Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, Houston, Texas, no date but late 1985 or January 1986. To Jamie. In full: "Thank you for your nice letter and interest in the upcoming shuttle flight. In regard to your questions, my official title on the mission is 'Payload Specialist' and I will be conducting experiments in fluid dynamics during the flight. The space shuttle cover you sent me was very interesting. If you happen to have an extra one, I would like one for myself. I have autographed it for you along with the 51-L crew patch you requested, and you will find them both enclosed (not present)." Greg Jarvis was originally assigned to be on flight 51-G but he and astronaut Charlie Walker were replaced by the first Arab in space and the first Frenchman on a U.S. flight, launched June 17, 1985. Jarvis was then reassigned to flight 51-I but he was also bumped from that August 27, 1985 flight. He was then re-assigned to flight 51-L aboard the Challenger as the payload specialist. On January 28, 1986, Challenger exploded 73 seconds after liftoff, killing Jarvis and his six colleagues. Fine condition. Framed in Gallery of History style: 31x21. Read More...

BENJAMIN FRANKLIN - LAND GRANT SIGNED 05/24/1787:

Franklin signed this document - granting a piece of Philadelphia land to Jacob Long for £2/12/6 - in 1787, less than four months before he signed the Constitution. This fascinating document shows that it was still business as usual, in many respects, for the Constitutional delegates, even during one of the most important moments in American history.

Manuscript DS: "B Franklin" as President of the Supreme Executive Council of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, 1p, 15½x13¼. On vellum. [Philadelphia], 1787 May 24. Countersigned: "James Trimble/for John Armstrong Jun Secry".
