FRANK CRANE
Crane handwrote, dated and signed this resolution of the Standing Committee of Union Church in Worcester, Massachusetts, where he was pastor, in 1903. This resolution accepted the resignation of John P. Allen as deacon of the church. Crane would continue to correspond with Allen for many years.
Autograph document signed: "Frank Crane" as Pastor and "Elmer G. Tucker" as Clerk, 2p, 8¼x10¾, on the letterhead of Union Church, Worcester, Massachusetts, with Dr. Frank Crane as Minister. Titled: "Resolutions adopted by/Union Church, Worcester, Mass/June 24, 1903/On the occasion of the removal of/Mr. J. P. Allen". This document, handwritten by Crane, was a resolution adopted by the Standing Committee of Union Church to accept the resignation of John P. Allen as deacon of the church. Allen had to resign because he was leaving the city and not, apparently, because of any scandal. Crane noted in this document "That we take this occasion to bear testimony to the high esteem in which Mr. Allen is held by this Church and Community, and the valuable and faithful service he has rendered our Church" and "That we commend him as a faithful servant of God, a business man of highest integrity, a Christian gentleman and a faithful friend." Crane continued to correspond with Allen over the years. Crane (1861-1928) was a Presbyterian minister. A popular newspaper columnist around the turn of the 20th Century, Crane published 10 volumes of his Four Minute Essays in 1919. He published a longer book, Everyday Wisdom, in 1927, with thought-a-day essays and "52 Little Talks on How to Live" - one for every week of the year, if you wanted. His writings were characterized by positive thinking and a populist political philosophy. Lightly toned and creased. Light show-through from notations on verso of page 2, which touches handwriting but not signature. Light tears along bottom edge of page. Folded five times and unfolded. Tears along folds on right and left edges, which touch handwriting but not signatures. Otherwise, fine condition.
