ROBERT H. GODDARD - TYPED LETTER SIGNED 03/07/1921:

ABOUT HIS ROCKET TO THE MOON

Historically Important TLS: "R.H. Goddard", 1p, 8¼x11. Clark College, Worcester, Mass., 1921 March 7. To William L. Straus, Jr., Baltimore. On stationery listing Goddard and C.E. Melville as Professors in the Department of Physics of Clark College. In full: "In reply to your letter of March 3, I might say: 1) The work at present is confined to the construction of a small model and there is no immediate prospect of financing anything more than this. 2) Regarding your second question, I admit that there is no oxygen in the atmosphere on the moon, but beg to call attention to the fact that any of the commercial flash powders contain an oxygen-carrying compound, which is usually potassium chlorate. The experiment which has been given considerable publicity took this fact into account, the flashes being exploded in a glass container in which the pressure had been reduced to about 1/60 of atmospheric pressure."

KING CHARLES II (GREAT BRITAIN) - MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENT SIGNED 03/22/1676 CO-SIGNED BY: THOMAS "FIRST EARL OF DANBY" OSBORNE:

As King he orders payment of £20 to Hugh Browne, countersigned by Lord Danby as Lord High Treasurer. Danby would soon land in the Tower of London, charged with corruption and abuse of office.

Manuscript Document signed: "Charles R" as King of England and "Danby" as Lord High Treasurer, 1 page, 9x11¾. Wallingford House (London), 1876 March 22. The King orders payment of £20 to Hugh Bane, former Provost of Strabane in Ireland. CHARLES II (1632-1712) claimed the English throne after the execution of his father, Charles I in 1849. The Scottish Parliament recognized his kingship, but that of England did not. Defeated by Oliver Cromwell on the battlefield, he fled to France in 1851. He was returned to the throne in 1860, although Charles dated his monarchy from 1849. Charles II's reign is known as The Restoration, and he was called the Merrie Monarch. He presided over a nation grateful for a return to normalcy after the conflict and puritanism of the Cromwell's Commonwealth. While executing some of those who had sanctioned the execution of his father, Charles II was careful not to make sweeping claims of absolute monarchy. He died with no legitimate children, and was succeeded by his brother, James II, who did try to rule as an absolute monarch (and a Catholic) and was overthrown after three years. Read More...

Numbered "IV" in upper left. In full: "'If the practical business of government consists largely in the adjustment of the conflicts of interest arising among the people & politicians who understand the nature of the peoples (sic) interests and are responsible for their treatment of them to powerful and durable parties, may well be the most serviceable rulers that the people can reasonably expect to obtain.'" On verso: "Politicians personal conviction result of personal environment prejudices etc - is this a more justified guide than a reasonable adjustment of conflicting forces - which also insure his partys (sic) success & his own." This stationery lists Senator Kennedy's committees as Labor and Public Welfare and Government Operations. In 1957, JFK was assigned to the Foreign Relations Committee, so this must have been written in 1953, 1954, 1955 or 1956. Read More...
