MAJOR GENERAL JAMES EWELL BROWN "JEB" STUART - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 05/17/1862:

Demanding carbines for his men, Stuart writes an insistent letter to Porter Alexander as he readies his cavalry for the first of their many daring raids behind Union lines.

Autograph Letter signed: "J. E. B. Stuart", 1 page, 3¾x6. Headquarters, Cavalry Brigade [Army of Northern Virginia], 1862 May 17. To "Dear Major" [E. Porter Alexander. Chief of Ordnance]. In full: "Have you done anything for that Blakely yet? Please attend to it at once as we are almost in daily use of it. I need carbines of long range, do make an effort to procure me a few hundred or even one or two. The 6th N[orth] C[arolina] vol[unteers] has 10, and other Inf[antr]y reg[imen]ts 20 [more], & various other non-combatants are thoroughly armed & equipped. Eradicate & eliminate for the cavalry."

MAJOR GENERAL WILLIAM

MAJOR GENERAL WILLIAM "BILLY" MITCHELL - TYPED LETTER SIGNED 02/16/1931:

Six years after the US Army court martialed him for insubordination, the prophetic advocate of air power calls for creation of a US Air Force independent of the Army and Navy. Mitchell correctly predicted in 1924 that Pearl Harbor would be attacked by Japanese bombers.

Typed Letter signed: "Wm. Mitchell", 1 page, 6½x10¼. Middleburg, Virginia, 1931 February 16. On personal letterhead to Sam E. Burns, Jr., Saginaw, Michigan. In full: "Thank you very much for your letter of Feb. 8th, which I found upon my return home today. I am glad to know of your interest in aviation problems. Your view is quite correct in regard to the Air Corps as at present organized. The only way aviation can be developed to its maximum efficiency is under its own officers, as a separate branch of the service, coequal with the Army and Navy. It takes a little time to bring the public mind around to a realization of this fact, but it will be accomplished sooner or later. One way in which boys in school can help toward this is by having debates on the subject." Read More...

PRESIDENT THOMAS JEFFERSON - FOUR LANGUAGE SHIPS PAPERS SIGNED CO-SIGNED BY: PRESIDENT JAMES MADISON

PRESIDENT THOMAS JEFFERSON - FOUR LANGUAGE SHIPS PAPERS SIGNED CO-SIGNED BY: PRESIDENT JAMES MADISON

PRESIDENT THOMAS JEFFERSON - FOUR LANGUAGE SHIPS PAPERS SIGNED CO-SIGNED BY: PRESIDENT JAMES MADISON:

With Anglo-American tensions at a fever pitch due to British seizure of American merchant ships, Jefferson as President, and Madison as Secretary of State, sign ship's papers for a brig bound for Marseilles! (19¾x16¼, matted and framed to 25½x22). This ship and its captain would be seized three years later - by the French!

Four Language Ship's Papers signed: "Th: Jefferson", "James Madison", 1 page, 19¾x16¼. Washington, D.C., 1807 May 21. Papers issued to Henry Latham, "master and commander of the Brig called the Canton ... lying at present at the port of New York bound for Marseilles and laden with Sugar - Wine - Coffee - Ginger - Pimento - Indigo - Beeswax - Nankins [a small breed of chicken] - Tobacco - and Logwood". These papers were signed at a critical moment in US relations with Britain. In 1806, determined to weaken Napoleonic France, Britain had announced a blockade of French ports. Under this order, US merchant ships were liable to seizure - 1,000 would be seized - and the crews subject to impressment in the Royal Navy. One month after the Canton sailed, British warships fired on the US vessel Chesapeake, heightening the crisis. Jefferson would announce an embargo on trade with Britain in December 1807, and war with Britain would commence in 1812. The captain would successfully run the blockade in 1806, but The Canton would be seized by France and Latham imprisoned (until payment of a large fine) in 1809! His brig had visited an English port before journeying on to France, and thus fell victim to Napoleon's counter-blockade. Read More...

PRIME MINISTER DAVID BEN-GURION (ISRAEL) - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 12/06/1970:

David Ben-Gurion writes to an admirer and he reminisces about the writer's parents.

ALS: "Your family friend,/D. Ben Gurion", 1p, 4¾x8½ lined sheet. Sdeh Boker (Negev, Israel), 1970 December 6. To Rina Yashar, Holon. In Hebrew, fully translated. Begins: "To Rina Yashar, Shalom and greetings". In full: "Do not regret the letter you have written to me. I was happy to receive it and enjoyed it. Being of the generation of your family, I was well acquainted with your parents. I did not know Yosef Vitkin personally but his activities and urging of youth groups in the diaspora to come to this country were well known to me. And now you have disclosed to me that fifty years ago, a boy was named Yaraiv, a name I (wrongly!) considered for some time as my invention. I only have a grandson bearing that name, while you have a brother (of that name) who already has grandchildren of his own, I imagine. I cannot write to your grandson that your father taught me to plow the earth, as I do not recall it. I remember your father from Segera. He was a farmer there, and I was a labourer of a farmer named Rogaczewski (later changed to a Hebrew name). I worked for Rogaczewski for three years and I knew your father well and we were friends. Although he was Ha'Poel Ha'Tzair'nik and I was Poel Zion. Thank you very much for your kind letter." DAVID BEN-GURION (1886-1973) wrote this letter shortly after he retired from government service (for the second time) to return home to the Kibbutz Sde Boker. Read More...

SAMUEL F. B. MORSE - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 05/01/1843

SAMUEL F. B. MORSE - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 05/01/1843:

One year before his first successful telegraph message, Morse signs an autograph letter to Treasury Secretary John Spencer, explaining that the cost of preparing the wire will be $10 more than his previous estimate. He'll still come in under budget!

ALS: "Saml F.B. Morse", 1 page, 8x10. New York, 1843 May 1. To Secretary of the Treasury John C. Spencer. In full: "In my letter of the 29th ulto accompanying the contracts for the Telegraphic Wire, and the expenses of covering, I left a blank in the former which I observed was to be filled with a sum not exceeding 24 cents pr.lb. I have this moment heard from Paterson, and am enabled to fill the said blank with 22 cents. This varies the expense of Preparation of the Wire as given in my letter to the Department of 26th ulto from $1900 to $1910 - making the contracts for this part of the work of $690 less than the original estimates, instead of $700 - as therein stated." Samuel Finley Breese Morse (1791-1872), a portrait painter and a founder and first President of the National Academy of Design (1826-1845, 1861), interested himself in the possibilities of a magnetic telegraph in 1832. He developed the Morse Code for use in the telegraph instrument. Read More...
