GEORGE WILLIAM CURTIS
This note was handwritten, dated and signed by Curtis in 1869
Autograph sentiment signed "with the good wishes/of/George William Curtis-/October 19, 1869". Curtis (1824-1892, born in Providence, Rhode Island) was educated at Brook Farm and then moved to Concord, Massachusetts, where he learned from such American literary luminaries as Emerson, Thoreau and Hawthorne. Lead editorial writer (1857) and then editor of Harper's Weekly (1863), Curtis wrote in favor of emancipation; equal rights for African-Americans, native Americans and women; civil service reform; public education and environmental conservation. A life-long Republican, he was a leader of the reform-minded "Mugwumps" who refused to support the Party's nominee of 1884, James Blaine, helping to elect the first Democratic President since the Civil War, Grover Cleveland. Curtis also wrote travelogues, poetry and one novel, Trumps (1862). Lightly toned and creased, otherwise in fine condition.
