    WHEREAS AT A GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT, HOLDEN AT NEW-HAVEN, ON THE SECOND THURSDAY OF OCTOBER, 1796, AN ACT WAS PASSED FOR INCORPORATING THE PROPRIETORS OF THE HALF MILLION ACRES OF LAND, LYING SOUTH OF LAKE ERIE, WHICH ACT IMPOWERED THE AGENTS OF SAID PROPRIETORS IN GENERAL MEETING ASSEMBLED, TO LAY TAXES ON SAID PROPRIETORS, AND TO APPOINT THE TIMES WHEN PAYABLE; AND ALSO IMPOWERED THE COLLECTORS OF SAID PROPRIETORS TO MAKE SALE OF THE RIGHTS OF SUCH PARTS THEREOF, AS SHOULD BE SUFFICIENT TO DISCHARGE THE TAX OR TAXES, WHICH THE PROPRIETOR OR PROPRIETORS OF RIGHTS MIGHT NEGLECT OR REFUSE TO PAY.. by [Connecticut Western Reserve]

    [Hartford?, 1799. Printed folio broadside, 7-3/8" x 12-1/4", completed in manuscript and docketed in manuscript on verso. Old folds, light foxing, else Very Good. An evidently unrecorded document on Connecticut claims to the Western Reserve, not located on ESTC, OCLC, or NAIP as of March 2017. "A general meeting of the agents of said proprietors, held at Hartford, on the 17th May, 1797", established a schedule of taxes. But Frances Bradley of Fairfield, failed to pay. Thus, on January 15, 1798, her property was sold for the amount of unpaid taxes, to Walter Terry of Fairfield. Lothrop Lewis of Fairfield, the tax collector, here officially transfers the property to Terry. His deed, dated March 30, 1799, is acknowledged on April 5, 1799. Lothrop Lewis, whose name is printed, also signs in ink; witnesses were Lewis Sturges and Samuel Rowland. In 1786 Connecticut relinquished claims to land west of Pennsylvania except for the Western Reserve, a portion of what is now south of Lake Erie in northeast Ohio. Connecticut assigned some of the Reserve to its citizens as compensation for losses suffered during the Revolution; and sold the rest to a consortium of Connecticut men, including Moses Cleaveland, who had formed the Connecticut Land Company. Their speculations were not successful, there being no effective local government in the Reserve capable of unraveling the tangle of land titles. Thus taxes imposed were frequently not collected. To force payment of the tax, on January 15, 1798 Lothrop Lewis conducted the sales. [Carpenter: ORIGIN AND LOCATION OF THE FIRELANDS OF THE WESTERN RESERVE, Ohio Archeological and Historical Quarterly, Volume 44, April, 1935, page180.] Lothrop [a/k/a Lathrop] Lewis [1759-1817], born in Fairfield, was its tax collector for many years. Lewis B[urr] Sturges [1763-1844], born in Fairfield, graduated from Yale, was clerk of the Probate Court from 1787 to 1791, a member of the Connecticut House of Representatives from 1794 to 1803; and a Federalist Congressman from 1805 to 1816. He spent his later years in Ohio. Samuel Rowland [1769-1837] was born in Fairfield, admitted to the bar in 1794, was a lawyer and town clerk for 42 years, and turnpike surveyor to the New York State line.

    IN THE NAME AND BY THE AUTHORITY OF THE WHITE BOYS IN BLUE OF COLUMBUS, OHIO by White Boys in Blue

    [Columbus, 1868. Broadside membership certificate, printed in blue typescript and completed in manuscript, with attractive illustration of American Flag and Screaming Eagle. Alexander McCoy is elected "an HONORARY MEMBER of the WHITE BOYS IN BLUE OF COLUMBUS, OHIO." He is thus expected "to subscribe to such principles as adopted in our Constitution and By-Laws." Dated in manuscript December 1, 1868; signed in ink by the Colonel Commanding [Isaac H. Marrow, a veteran of the 3d Ohio Infantry], the Adjutant [J.N. Miller], and the Secretary [H.J. Feltus, who served in several Indiana regiments]. Expert reinforcement on blank verso to horizontal folds. Decorative border. Very Good. The 'White Boys in Blue' was a post-Civil war organization comprised of former Union soldiers who favored Andrew Johnson's mild Reconstruction policy. Its adherents supported the Seymour-Blair 1868 presidential ticket, and opposed the Republican Party and Congressional Reconstruction. It was especially active in Indiana and Ohio. "Its influence is pernicious, and its designs are believed to be to restore rebels to power and demand for the South full reparation for all damages occasioned by the war, and if it can, to compel the nation to pay the rebel debt, but first to repudiate our own national debt. It invites to its membership all soldiers opposed to the National Congress and the lawful government of the United States... They embellish the dogmas of their with extenuations and justifications for the 'lost cause,' and justify the barbarous cruelties of Andersonville prison pen."

    MR. CHASE'S VIEWS by [Chase, Chief Justice Salmon P.]

    [np, 1868. Folio sheet, folded to 4pp. Caption title, as issued. A few fox spots, Very Good. Even after President Lincoln appointed him Chief Justice of the United States, Chase hankered after the Presidency. Lincoln had thwarted Chase's scheme to win the 1864 presidential nomination. He then appointed him to the Supreme Court as Chief Justice Roger Taney's successor. Formerly an Ohio Democratic Governor and abolitionist Senator, Chase covertly sought the 1868 Democratic nomination for president. Distilling what they perceived to be Chase's opinions on subjects of national importance, "his friends have thought it advisable to print together the several statements of political principles and measures to which... he has given his assent, within the last two months." All, of course, totally unsanctioned by Chase himself. Chase, they say, stands for "universal suffrage" [under the control of the individual States], "universal amnesty," and an end to "military government." Chase's "Reply," dated July 1, 1868, endorses these principles, emphasizes his regard for State Rights, and demurely advises, "In the event of nomination and success, I trust that I should so act that neither the great party which makes the nomination, nor the great body of patriotic citizens whose co-operation would ensure success, would have any cause to regret their action."

    REVEREND AND DEAR SIR,- [A PRINTED LETTER SIGNED IN TYPE 'M.R.', DATED JULY 30, 1842, SEEKING TO RAISE FUNDS TO HIRE A SERVANT FOR BISHOP AND MRS. CHASE OF THE DIOCESE OF ILLINOIS] by [R., M.]

    [London?, 1842. Folio sheet, folded to [4]pp. Caption title, as issued. Old folds, bit of fold wear [but without effect on text], Very Good. Bishop Chase had visited England in 1823 and1836, and made many friends and admirers, to whom this appeal is addressed. M.R. notes that "the expenses of the wages and maintenance of a servant in Illinois" are 50-55 British pounds per year. The Letter describes Chase's work, although "It would be difficult to give a view of the extent of country through which Bishop Chase has laboured, unless the eye could follow his course over a map of North America"-- from Massachusetts, to New Orleans, "and thence through the vast extent of territory he has been led over." In Ohio, he "was overwhelmed with the sight of the frightful spiritual destitution of the multitudes who were rushing into those wilds to seek an earthly subsistence, and leaving behind them every means of 'acquainting themselves with God.'" He established Kenyon College, and then moved on to Illinois, "in the far west of America." His rudimentary living conditions are described, and his need for domestic help explained.

    THE DANVILLE REVIEW. CONDUCTED BY AN ASSOCIATION OF MINISTERS. MARCH, JUNE, SEPTEMBER, AND DECEMBER, 1862, NOS. 1-4 by [Danville Review]

    Danville, KY, and Cincinnati, OH: Printed for the Association and Sold By Moore, Wilstach, Keys & Co. of Cincinnati, 1862. 8vo. Four issues: No. 1, 195pp; No. 2, 197-370, [1-errata] pp; No. 3, 371-541 pp; No. 4, 543-714, [6] pp. Number 1 is lacking the rear wrapper; the top outer corner of the last four leaves are creased and worn, with one corner torn [loss of only a few letters]; the outermost pages have minimal edgewear with the interior clean. Numbers 2 and 3 have minor dusting and wear to wrappers with clean interiors. Number 4 has some soil and wear to wraps, with the rear wrapper detached but present; interior clean with minor spotting to the edges of the outermost leaves. Overall, Very Good. Contents include a variety of articles on the Presbyterian religion, original sin, "The Secession Conspiracy in Kentucky," Politics and the Church, Negro Slavery and the Civil War, Israel and the Sinai, and much else. The Danville Review was founded by professors at Centre College and Danville Theological Seminary in order to establish a Presbyterian quarterly more centrally located than those in the eastern states. Original editors were Robert J. Breckinridge, Edward P. Humphrey, Stephen Yerkes, and Joseph T. Smith, of Danville Theological Seminary; James Matthews, Jacob Cooper, and Robert W. Landis of Centre College of Danville; and Robert W. Landis, John M. Worrall, and Robert L. Breck, all of Kentucky. It was, as its Prospectus stated, "designed mainly for the exposition, advancement and defence of the Christian Religion, considered in its purely Evangelical sense; and for open resistance to whatever is hostile to it, or inconsistent with it... its pages will be open to the consideration of all other interests of man, and the discussion of everything that promotes or obstructs any one of these interests. The work is projected, and will be controlled, by persons, all of whom are members of, the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America, all of whom accept the standards of that Church in their obvious sense." Reverend Breckinridge used the publication in his fight to keep Kentucky from secession. Not in Lomazow.

    SOUTHERN AND WESTERN LIBERTY CONVENTION. A SOUTHERN AND WESTERN CONVENTION OF THE FRIENDS OF CONSTITUTIONAL LIBERTY, WILL BE HELD IN THE CITY OF CINCINNATI, ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 11, 1845 by [Liberty Party]

    [Cincinnati, 1845. Folio sheet, folded to 8" x 10". [4]pp. Printed in typescript on rectos only, addressed in manuscript, with postal cancel, on page [4], to John W. Anderson, Columbus, Ohio; and ink signature 'S.P. Chase 1845.' Remnant of red seal. Couple of short tape repairs at folds. Else Very Good. This is the rare invitation to a significant anti-slavery conference. Salmon P. Chase presided, and is one of four men issuing this Call on March 10, 1845. Seeking a diversity of political views, the Convention sought the attendance, not merely of "members of the Liberty Party, but of all who, 'BELIEVING THAT WHATEVER IS WORTH PRESERVING IN REPUBLICANISM CAN BE MAINTAINED, ONLY, BY ETERNAL AND UNCOMPROMISING WAR AGAINST THE CRIMINAL USURPATIONS OF THE SLAVE POWER'." Chase and his fellows "look for a large and imposing Convention of the friends of freedom and free labor, and hope for a numerous attendance from the slave holding States." Relying on the sentiments of the Founders expressed in the Declaration of Independence, Jefferson's Notes on Virginia, the Northwest Ordinance, and other contemporary writings, the Liberty Party and the Convention claimed that, although the Nation was founded on the premise that Slavery was evil, Slavery has nevertheless taken hold of both major parties. This was probably the Liberty Party's era of greatest success, having received sufficient votes to deny the presidency in 1844 to Henry Clay. It later metamorphosed into the Free Soil Party and, finally, the Republicans. Not in American Imprints, LCP, Sabin, Dumond, Blockson.

His experience and facilities for collecting claims are unsurpassed by any other attorney."

Tallmadge since his childhood, and his father and family quite as long, but have never had any personal knowledge of his business. Being applied to, I am willing to express my belief that he is worthy of confidence, and capable to discharge the business he has undertaken at Columbus, Ohio, as Military Claim Agent."

    STATE RIGHTS. THE JOINT RESOLUTIONS AND REPORT, TO THE OHIO LEGISLATURE, AGAINST FEDERAL CONSOLIDATION: SESSION 1859 by [Nullification, Ohio-Style]

    Columbus: Rihchard [sic] Nevins, State Printer, 1859. Original printed yellow wrappers, stitched. 51, [1 blank] pp. A few fox spots on the last couple of leaves, else Fine. This rare pamphlet raises the banner of State Rights, opposing perceived federal "consolidation" and "encroachment" resulting from enforcement of the Fugitive Slave Act, a much-loathed part of the Compromise of 1850. Sounding like outraged, hot-blooded South Carolinians, Ohioans insist that "the whole sacred edifice of our confederation is supported by the separate and distinct, but consenting pillars of thirty-three sovereign and independent States." The Report describes a "complete nullification of State rights and sovereignty"-- the Clark County fugitive slave case. Federal marshals sought to arrest a Negro who, with the help of others, resisted. They were all arrested, but procured a writ of habeas corpus from a State judge, freeing them. A federal writ, issued at the behest of U.S. officials, then overturned the State court writ. To add insult to injury, federal marshals arrested the state judge who had issued the habeas, the sheriff who attempted to serve it, and the lawyer who had sought the State writ. Other horribles, demonstrating "aggressions" and "encroachment of the federal government upon State rights," are enumerated, with a plea that "recurrence to the fundamental principles of civil government is absolutely necessary to preserve the blessings of liberty." OCLC locates only the copy at the Huntington, as of November 2014, with plenty of Kirtas Technologies facsimiles. OCLC 228711849 [1].
