JOHN GORHAM PALFREY
The Unitarian Minister and anti-slavery Congressman signs an autograph sentiment.
Autograph Sentiment: "Yours truly,/Jo G Palfrey", 3½x1 piece of paper attached to 4½x1¼ piece of paper (two surfaces). John Gorham Palfrey (1796-1881) was a Unitarian Minister and Professor of Biblical Literature at Harvard Divinity School. The home he built on the campus is now Palfrey House, owned by the Divinity School. He wrote for several theological journals and edited the North American Review (1835-1943). Elected as a Whig to the Massachusetts legislature and then the US Congress (1947-1949), his strong denunciations of slavery alienated enough voters that he was defeated for re-election. He was the unsuccessful gubernatorial candidate of the Free Soil in 1851. President Lincoln appointed him Postmaster of Boston (1861-1867). He devoted his later years to writing a 5-volume History of New England to the Revolutionary War. Fold creases not near signature. Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
