JAMES REDPATH. Signature: "James Redpath/NY/May 21, 1881", 3¾x2 slip. James Redpath (1833-1891), born in England, moved with his family to the US in 1849. He immediately began writing antislavery tracts, which attracted the attention of Horace Greeley. Greeley invited the young Redpath, still a teenager, to write for the New York Tribune. In the 1850s, Redpath made three tours of the southern states, interviewing slaves about their condition and publishing Talks with Slaves in the Southern States. In 1856, Redpath went to Kansas to support the free soil cause in that state, starting his own anti-slavery newspaper. He met John Brown that year and reported favorably on Brown to newspaper readers in the East. He continued to support Brown after the raid on Harper's Ferry and Brown's execution, writing a best-selling biography of the man the next year. In later years Redpath was an editor at the North American Review. He was active in "single tax" advocate Henry George's campaign for Mayor of New York (1886). Mounting adhesive on verso shows through lightly. Otherwise, fine condition.
