EUNICE BEECHER (HENRY WARD BEECHER)
Card signed by the wife of the popular abolitionist preacher
Signature: "Mrs. Henry Ward Beecher" in blue ink. 3¼x2¼. Beecher (1812-1897) married abolitionist Pastor Henry Ward Beecher, brother of Harriet Stowe Beecher, author of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Henry Ward Beecher was a famous preacher who, in 1837, served churches in Lawrenceburg and Indianapolis Indiana, which had become a state only two decades before. His wife, though she was initially excited to move into out west, found the life of a frontier preacher's wife in Lawrenceburg's mosquito-and-malaria-infested swamps to be rougher than she thought. Two of her children were born dead there. The family moved back to Brooklyn in 1847 and, in 1859, she published her memories of the area in the semi-autobiographical From Dawn to Daylight, which painted such a negative view of Indiana that it was banned in Indianapolis. In 1870 Henry Ward Beecher, now an American religious superstar, was accused of adultery by Elizabeth Tilton, accusations that she later recanted. Eunice stayed loyal to her husband throughout the resulting scandal, which lasted a total of seven years. Lightly toned, otherwise in fine condition.
