HISTORIC PAINTED & DOVETAILED DOWER CHEST MADE FOR ANNA-MARIA DICKERT, DAUGHTER OF JACOB DICKERT, FAMOUS PENNSYLVANIA RIFLE MAKER.

18th century chest with two tombstone panels featuring tulips and urns with distelfink. Bearing the name of Anna-Maria Dickert. Sitting atop oak bracket base of similar era but different origin. Dated 1786 on front. SIZE: 49″w x 20″d x 25-1/2″ h PROVENANCE: Anna-Maria Dickert was the daughter of well known 18th century gunsmith Jacob Dickert. records show that Jacob Dickert was a member of the Moravian Church of Lancaster Pennsylvania. (Fine article by Henry Kauffman can be found in April 1952 Antiques Magazine.) A great deal of information pertaining to Jacob Dickert and his gunsmithing is contained in the two volume set “U.S. Ordnance” By Major James E. Hicks. Dickert was born in Maintz, Germany in 1740. He came to America with his parents and settled in Berks County, Pennsylvania, in 1748. His family moved to Lancaster in 1756. In 1764 he married Johanneta Hofer who was born in York County in 1746. Jacob became a citizen of Pennsylvania and the Kingdom of Great Britain in 1765. In 1776 Jacob Dickert and John Henry, another Lancaster gunsmith, built a boring mill. Dickert probably made rifles for the Continental Army but the first known contract between Dickert and the United States is dated 1792. In 1787 Jacob Dickert’s daughter married James Gill, a merchant of Lancaster. CONDITION: The chest was altered a long time ago and is now fitted with an 18th century bracket base from another period chest. Probably at the same time, much of the paint on the chest was scraped down to the bare wood, however the inscription and the two panels were preserved. The surface was apparently also varnished at that time. Original hinges and lock intact and original lid is detached. 9-92260 (2,000-4,000) – Lot 2037

According to his article in Maine Antique Digest, Sept. 15, 2013, titled “The Hunterdon County Clock Case and the Enigmatic John Guild” has determined that Hunterdon County Clock cases are characterized by the inverted bell shaped top of the case door. We would therefore attribute the clock as possibly by John Guild.”

VERY RARE “PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD” WEATHERVANE.

Late 19th century, New York or New England. Finely formed example of a quill pen breaking a sword blade in copper with very good handle detail and having zinc quill pen nib. Marked on the side of the blade “C. Curtis/ Wyncote Penn/ 1892”. We believe the engraving on the blade refers to the actual owner of the weathervane as we have discovered to date. Owner: Cyrus Hermann Kotzschmar Curtis (1850-1933). Curtis was an American publisher of Saavy magazines and newspapers including the Saturday Evening Post. His wife Louisa Knapp was editor of Ladies Home Journal also published by Curtis. Born in Portland, Maine in 1850 the son of Cyrus Libby Curtis he was named after one of Portland’s most famous and beloved musicians Hermann Kotzschmar who resided with the Curtis family. Curtis relocated to Pennsylvania in 1876 and founded Curtis Publishing in 1890-1891. Also in the 1890s Curtis purchased “Lyndon” a Renaissance revival style mansion on Church Road in Wyncote, Pennsylvania. Landscaping was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead. After Curtis’s death in 1933 the mansion was demolished and the potting shed and pergola were retained and the property was donated to the township and the Curtis Hall Arboretum was created. It is our thinking the renowned publisher Cyrus Curtis, was the owner of this weathervane and that it was mounted on the “Lyndon” property in or about 1892, and that it was removed at the time the building was demolished. The choice of this weathervane by Cyrus Curtis for use a Wyncote is a logical extension of Curtis’ profession as an important publisher. After Portland City Hall burned in 1908 Cyrus H.K. Curtis donated, in memory of his childhood friend, the grand pipe organ known as “The Kotzschmar Organ”. NOTE: Similar example illustrated in 1893 pg 121. Mounted on a museum stand. SIZE: 40″ x 36″. PROVENANCE: Letter from the original owner to the current owner supplied by consignor: “My father Frank Dummer acquired this weathervane sometime in the mid-thirties during the depression. He got some work near Philadelphia to demolishing buildings there. As partial payment for his labor he agreed to take this weathervane which was on one of the buildings. I can remember seeing this since I was a little girl growing up in the forties. My father would always say ‘the pen is mightier than the sword,’ when talking about war. He also said, ‘sadly the pen rarely prevented war though.’ He loved weathervanes and we had quite a collection in our home while I was growing up. This was one of the ones that I got to keep after he died in 1981. It has an inscription on the blade which I believe reads CURTIS WYNCOTE PENN 1892. I was told this was probably the maker of the vane but research has not produced any weathervane makers named Curtis. I hate parting with this but economic times have forced me to start selling things.” Similar example sold at Northeast Auctions August 2006 Lot 1623. CONDITION: Very good with verdigris finish with traces of original gilt. Now offered with museum stand. 9-94486 (20,000-40,000) – Lot 2214

3 FINE LEATHER BOUND BOOKS WITH FORE-EDGE PAINTINGS.

Late 19th century. England. 3 fine examples of 19th century fore-edge painting. The first being Cowper’s works in full green leather with fore-edge painting, a beautiful and simple view of the rambling cottage that was the authors birthplace. The second poems of Samuel Colridge 1870 in tooled red leather having a fore-edge painting of a simple village scene. The third, tooled black leather “Book of Worthies 1882″ with a view of Alexandria Egypt. All three volumes in similar quarter leather custom fitted shelf boxes with tooled leather book binding edge. NOTE: A fore-edge painting is an artwork painted on the fourth edge or the edge opposite the spine of a book. These three are of the type that need to be fanned out in order to view the artwork. In the 16th century fore-edge painting was employed in order to identify a volume that was displayed with its fourth edge visible on the shelf. at this time the Italian artist Cesare Vecellio (cousin of Titian) used the fourth edge of books as his canvas. In the 17th century the technique was advanced to include painting the exposed edge of the pages when they were fanned. The edge was gilded so that the view was revealed only by fanning the page. SIZE: with outer case 7″ H 4 1/2” W CONDITION: The first very good with a minor chafe spot on edge of cover. The second with high spot and edge wear and chafing to cover. The third with minor high spot and edge wear and chafing to cover. 9-93857 (1,500-2,500) – Lot 2258

Lt Colonel JP Spoffard who is listed as a recruiting officer, had just joined the service a month before on August 5, 1861 and had a great career in the unit. He would be part of staff commanding the unit at battle of Antietam, a year after this meeting in September 1862 with this units heavy losses, over 100 men killed and wounded.

CIVIL WAR BROADSIDE “PROCLAMATION” TO THE CITIZENS OF NEW ORLEANS BY THE CAPTURER OF THE CITY GENERAL BENJAMIN “BEAST” BUTLER.

New Orleans: 1 May 1862. Broadside, printed on brown necessity paper. This is one of the broadsides posted in the city of New Orleans just after its capture earlier that week. Signed in print by Benjamin F. Butler. “Beast Butler’s” proclamation on the union occupation of New Orleans. The text of the broadside begins: “The City of New Orleans and its environs, with all its interior and exterior defenses, having been surrendered to the combined naval and land forces of the United States, who have come to restore order, maintain public tranquility, enforce peace and quiet under the Laws and Constitution of the United States, the Major-General commanding the forces of the United States in the Department of the Gulf, hereby makes known and proclaims the object and purposes of the Government of the United States in thus taking possession of the City of New Orleans and the State of Louisiana …” The broadside delineates specific rules for the military governance of the city under his command. These martial laws included the surrender of arms, a ban on flags other than that of the United States, the requirement of oaths of allegiance, the necessity of returns on public property, a suspension on the right to assemble, etc.” Issued on the day that General Butler took possession of New Orleans. He sent the proclamation to the True Delta newspaper office to be printed but the Confederate biased editor refused; the press was promptly seized and army printers recruited to set up the historic document” (Catalog of the American Library of Thomas W. Streeter). The provision concerning flags had an immediate result when William Mumford was executed for lowering the flag that Farragut had raised over the mint prior to Butler’s entering the city. This action, coupled with Butler’s infamous Order No. 28, which allowed New Orleans women who showed contempt for a Union officer to be treated as if a prostitute, resulted in Butler’s nickname as “The Beast.” The broadside is quite rare. We can only locate 7 or 8 institutional copies including Harvard University, Yale University, Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, Trinity College Library, Northwestern University and New York Historical Society Library. SIZE: 25-1/4″ x 8-3/4″. PROVENANCE: Norm Flayderman Estate Collection. CONDITION: Document was not taken from frame but paper appears yellowed and brittle and glue line along edges can be seen coming through paper where mounted on blue cardboard. Cracks at three horizontal folds with some chipping affecting several letters of text as can be seen in photos.

“RALLY FREEMEN!” CIVIL WAR RECRUITING POSTER 187TH PA INF.

This rare poster recruiting troops early in 1864 by Capt. Charles A. Thomas a veteran of several other PA regiments rising from the ranks of Private to Captain would lead his troops from Camp Curtin, Harrisburg, PA to join General Joshua Chamberlain commanding the first division of the 5th army corps. The newly formed 187th would “see the elephant” early and often as it joined the army June 6th in the front at Petersburg. On June 17th alone General Chamberlain would cite this unit for gallantry as Major George W. Merrick who lost his leg and the unit lost over 10% of their men killed or wounded on this single day of fighting. The unit would remain engaged in the trenches and on the fortifications at Petersburg until August 18th when unit moved down the Weldon Railroad and saw more heavy fighting at Six Mile House. The unit was ordered back north September 22nd for garrison and escort duty in Philadelphia as it had seen enough action in their first few months in the war. During the funeral obsequies of President Lincoln it led the procession from the railway station to Independence Hall and guarded the remains while they lay in state. Together with the 1st City Troop they were detailed to escort the remains back to the railroad. This is a wonderful poster typical of late war posters advertising large cash payments for new recruits who could receive a bounty often as large as a year or more wages for a common laborer. SIZE: 31″ x 24-1/4″. PROVENANCE: Norm Flayderman Estate Collection. CONDITION: Fair to good as laid and mounted on linen.

RARE RECRUITING BROADSIDE 14TH PENNSYLVANIA CAVALRY.

This wonderful broadside has a 9″ x 14″ vignette of a Union Cavalry charge against Confederate Infantry possibly this is a rendition of Colonel James Schoonmaker’s gallant attack at Cedar Mountain (Winchester) mentioned in this poster. Schoonmaker would go on to win the Medal of Honor leading his troops at the Battle of Winchester in 1864.

Regardless this is a wonderful poster in beautiful condition with the poetic phrasing “TO HORSE! TO HORSE!

CIVIL WAR RECRUITING POSTER FOR PENNSYLVANIA HEAVY ARTILLERY.

This beautiful poster has a large patriotic eagle vignette with ribbon in beak with patriotic mottoes “LIBERTY AND UNION, ONE & UNSEPARABLE” on either side of text are 21″ tall vignettes of a soldier and Lady Liberty with American flags. Colonel Charles Angeroth is appealing for troops in “…the only regiment of the kind called for, and the service is the most desirable of any in the army. This regiment will always be stationed in forts or temporary fortifications, and consequently avoid the exposure and hardships of the ordinary soldier.” Well, Colonel Angeroth was right, Heavy Artillery troops for first three years of war saw routine garrison work in the fortifications of Washington D.C. for the most part but early in 1864 General Grant decided he needed more men to be part of the charges to take Richmond as fast as possible with little regard for mass causalities and the 2nd PA Heavy Artillery now fought as the 112th PA Inf at the battles of Cold Harbor and the battles around Petersburg. This unit had limited casualties prior to 1864 but would have total losses of 616 men killed, mortally wounded and from disease. SIZE: 28″ x 24″. PROVENANCE: Norm Flayderman Estate Collection. CONDITION: Fair overall as laid down and mounted on linen.

ORIGINAL CONFEDERATE FIRST NATIONAL FLAG WITH MISSOURI HISTORY.

Civil War Confederate silk embroidered 7-star Confederate First National pattern flag made from silk ribbons, all hand stitched with hand embroidered stars and 1-1/2″ silk fringe on fly. This is a fine, well preserved example of a typical flag made by a mother or sweetheart of a soldier going off to war. Often called “bible flags” these small flags would easily fold and could be kept in a book. 7 stars were only used for a short period of time at the very beginning of the war in April of 1861. This flag has a small tag saved with it associating it to Confederate Captain John M. Weidemeyer of the 6th Missouri Inf. Apparently Mr. Flayderman at one time owned Weidemyers diary and letters and retained this wonderful little flag. There is a typed memoir of Mr. Weidermeyer housed at Pearce Civil War Collection, Navarro College, Corsicana, Texas. SIZE: 5-1/2″ t x 15″ l. PROVENANCE: Norm Flayderman Estate Collection.

Included in this lot is an “as found” model 1850 US foot officer’s sword. Sword is in overall fine condition with a bright, frosty etched blade with patriotic motifs. Accompanying orig scabbard is sound and solid with matching patina to mounts. Long 4-pg (quarto) letter was written from Camp Rice, Arlington Heights, VA August 6, 1861. Lt. Brown is writing to his wife and family telling of his travels to the Manassas Battle Field in detail for 5 days July 16 till the date of the battle he had encountered many rebels and he and his men had captured many chickens and pigs and had had quite a feast before 1 am July 21st, 1861 “…we started for the battle or Bulls Run. Bloody Run is the name of it now…the battle commenced at 8 am…I fell on my face…cannon shot and shell went right over my head, this falling on my face saved my head this time, one of the shells struck a few yards from me and bursted. If I had been standing up it would hurt me…as soon as this shell went off I got up and started but they gave me another shot before I could get to the woods but did not hurt me…I had to run back the same way and take our wounded man and leave as fast as we could towards the house where our wounded stay. The cavalry was close to us when I got to the house I was all gone and could not go quite so well and wanted to. So Rubin Huchings took me in charge he helped me down to the bridge and it was so crowded with people that we could not get across it and we forded the river, some got drowned and the most got through safe…”. There are many more interesting details to this letter that should be read by perspective bidders. You can read hundreds and hundreds of Civil War letters before you find such a detailed letter on this early event of the war. Transcription of the letter as follows: A sketch from Bull Run by our own artist, _____ Brown Camp Rice Arlington Heights August 6th, 1861 Dear wife and children, I suppose that you would like to have a sketch or a line of our or my travels from Falls Church. We left there July the 16, 1861 for Fairfax Court house. Did not see much on our rout untill we got to ____ depot. There the rebels had burnt all the ____. We stopped just the other side of the depot in a field with some 14,000 troops. Just as we had got laid down to sleep and some had gone to sleep one of the officers horses got frightened and ran over every one that he chose. He ran over a number of our Reg and hurt some quite badly but did not hurt any of our company. We arose early the next morning and eat our hard bread & beef.. and at 5am we left for Centerville or Fairfax Court house. Not much of anything transpired untill we got to the court house or in sight as we went up on the hill just above side of the town. Our artillery was behind and just as we got upon this hill. We fell out by the side of the road and let theirs park. One Batery ____ south. One fellow on the carriage was going fast or fell off on his butt but got up again and caught up with the Batery and got on. As this battery was firing at and into the town to see what was there out come the Rebels and retreated double quick. I could see them plain from the hill. As soon as this was noticed we advanced on them. We had 2 regiments out as ____ one on each side of the road. We had to march slowly so as to be sure not to get into any traps. We tried to catch them by going around through Germantown. But just before we got there our ____ found a hedge across the road where we were going. The rebels had fell all the trees that was any where nigh the road and on both sides of the road. So we had to wait untill ____ and some others chopped it away. As soon as we got through this we discovered a Batery this side of Germantown and we brought up our rifled canon and fired a few shots into the battery and the rebels left quick enough. The shot went through the Batery and through the top of a house in the town and a black man was very much frightened when the shot went through. The rebels left a lot of harm and other things. We marched over there Batery, the very place where our shot went through, stoped a few moments to get some watter in the town and put up the Stares & Stripes. Some of the boys wrung all of the chickens necks and killed all the pigs they had time to. We got a pig and roasted him that night when we stopped. He was very good indeed. We laid in an open field this night. Had an alarm about 2 in the morning got ready to fight but the rebels went back and we laid down but did not sleep much. Took cavelry all sub__ horses and all took up our line of march early in the morning found trees fell acrost the road but soon cut them away. We marched today and as guard for the teems in rear of all the rest. We marched into Centerville without fireing maney guns, stopped this side of the town 2 dayes to rest. Started July 21st 1861, 1, oclock in the morning we started for the Battle on Bull Run, Bloody run is the name of it now. We traveled on slowley and let the other regiments catch up with us. The battle commenced at 8am, we took some ____ in the morning got a bridge already to but across the river in place of one that the Rebels burnt when the ____ ordered our Reg to start for the Rebels we went double quick time about 9 miles with the sun beating down upon us very hot and there was not a breath of wind. We throwed away out blankets and haversacks and some throwed away there coats. The ground was showered with blankets etc. When we got into line of battle we were all beat out. We marched right on to a masked Batery, got within a few, rode and received the Rebel fire, the rest it is not best to write. The battle lasted 10 houres. We were ordered to retreat ____ before we did last on our side 1,000. On there 4,000 there forse was 9,000 and ours was but 10,000 that was in the battle. We marched that night all night, arrived in Alexanrdra the next day about 2 in the afternoon, got into ____ that was vacated and staid the until we got rested. Left Alexandra the 24 for the Heights And then took up out line of march for Arlington Heights arrived there about noon and found some of our Reg that had come through by the way of the Falls Church. Some of them we thought lost untill we got home and found them all safe. But did not find Charles Morris and some other that were taken prisoner. Tell Cate to be of good cheer. I think that she will see Charles again for he is not killed nor wounded as we know of. He is a noble fellow he ___ to favor me all he could when he was lugging that wounded man away. He was shot through the beley the ball went come out through him right by the side of his backbone, but he did not complain in the least. The Reg was all ahead of me when we was lugging E. Perkins off.. we carried him into a log house so as to run ahead and get a ambulance to carry him in but the Rebels opened a battery just then, some troopes that were resting come out into a open field that was between the house and the woods but the shot was flying faster than they wanted it to and there was not one that would go and I started as hard as I could run. The same time keeping my eye upon there battery. I had got about half way acrost the field when I see the smoke of there baterer then I fell on my face as quick as you please and the cannon shot and shell some 2 in number went right over my head. This falling on my face saved my head this time one of the shell struck a few yards from me and ____ if I had been standing up it would have hurt me. I want you to send and get Harpers Weekly or I will a paper that has the engravings of all the battles that is fought now. Harpers Weekly is as good as aney of them. As soon as this shell went off I got up and started but they gave me another shot before I could get to the woods but did not hurt me. I got over to where the teeme was said to be and they had all gone. Not one was to be got. Then I had to run back the same way and take our wounded man and leave as fast as we could towards the house where our wounded lay. The Calvary was close on to us. When I got to the house I was all gone and could not go quite so well as I wanted to so Ruben Huchings took me in charge. He helped me down to the bridge and it was so crowded with people that we could not get a crost on it and we forded the river. Some got drownded and the most got through safe. The watter was some 4 to 9 feet deep. Some fell down and the rest ran of over them , heavy wheeler they shoved of from the bridge he went down but come up all safe and got clear. There was a ball went through his leg just on the side. Did not lame him aney. When we were at this place the Rebels fired shot and shell in amongst us felled quite and wounded some. If I could have had my thoughts I could of picked up riffles of all kinds but some of the time those was 2 men helping me along. We stoped a short time at Centerville and then marched on to Alexandra and kept on until we got there the next day in the afternoon about 2 oclock. Well I think that this will do for one battle, when the company laged or fell back you could hear Leient ____ Browns voice over all the rest to forward for we were driving the scamps . The most of the time he was a head of the company and he would give the order to forward my brave boyes forward. The Rebels are running from us and they were. What saved me I do not know and perhaps I never will. Once as the Rebels fired as I dropped into a little ravine where the watter had had cut the dirt out. As I got up there was 8 or ten bullet holes right behind where I fell. So you see they intended to have me the first of it, the same bullet that wounded Jack Leewis killed Sewel Bonden. It went wright into his temple, he did not live but a short time and Bealing fell and did not hardley breathe before he expired. We were then ordered to retreat into the woods , this is when and where I found Perkins, he luged very heavy but I done the same by him as I would my own brother. I will now bring this weary letter to a close, please excuse all that is not wright written here if you please. Your affectionate Husband Leieut George I Brown from GA.

LUIS EMILIO CIVIL WAR LETTER, 54TH MASS.

7-pg letter from Capt. Luis Emilio to his sister September 7, 1863. This letter is written after the famous assault by the 54th Mass at Ft. Wagner. This particular letter came from same archive that this auction company sold in February of this year. This letter had been retained by consignor framed and forgotten. This is among the best letters for content from that archive. In this letter Emilio mentions receiving a picture of Colonel Shaw’s widow and helping the wife of one of his fellow captains shoot his sidearm. One passage reads “today has been a glorious one for us. Forts Maguire & Gregg were evacuated early this morning-everything was prepared to assault the works, but providence interposed against more Slaughter. Our regiment was in the front but held in reserve had the assault been made. I will not attempt to describe the horrors of war around these works. You can imagine what they were-remembering that the most terrific cannonade had been kept up by our batteries for 48 hours. Now the whole of Morris Island is Uncle Sam’s it was a joyous time when the word was circulated that the works were ours…” Transcription of the letter as follows: Morris Is. S.C. Sept. 7th/63 Dear Ira? Your nice-long-interesting letter was warmly welcomed and you truly say the contents not the paper in which they are written is looked to by me. I am so glad you en-joyed your visit to Rockport you must in your next letter give me some ideal of the place, and it’s surroundings. Thanks for the picture of Miss Shaw you so generously took from your own album before it was replaced by another. Today has been a glorious one for us. Fort Maguire & Gregg were evacuated early this morning-everything was performed to assault the works, but Providence inter…against more slaughter – Our Regt. Was in the front but held in reserve had the assault been made – I will not attempt to dis-cribe the honors of war, around these works-you can imagine what they were-remembering that the most terrific _____had been kept up by our Batteries for 48 hours. Now the whole of Morris is Uncle Sam’s. It was a joyous time when word was circulated that the books were ours-reminded me of Newburg & Roanoke. We made nearly 70 prisoners. This evening the iron-clads have gone into the Harbor and are engaging Fort Moultrie and other Batteries on Sullivans Is. The result we do not know yet – but we have every hope for success; one of the Monit??? Got aground, but her companions kept up a fierce fight all day until afternoon when the high tide floated the “Wechauken” off-thus as if in defiance she sailed up the harbor ___ assistance – delivering shots as she passed the different Batteries, then majestically vered about and slowly came out of the _ unharmed, and triumphantly. A few more such trials, with the iron clade, will be the infinite service to us. We can plainly seethe columns of smoke ascending from Moultronville – which is on Sullivans Is. And composed of Sumner Hill, _____ of the Charlestonaires; we can imagine the dismay and discomfort of some wealthy Southerners made rich by speculation from the proceeds of blockade _-at the explosure of a shell, near his property. It is sad truly to think of the turn? Of non-combatants – women and children with terror in every shape at their very doors, but the flying ball makes no distinction of person. Thanks for your inquiries in regard to the residence of Miss Parmey? Let me know when you find out. I wish that you would be so kind as to enclose one of my pictured in a letter stating that you send it agreeable to my desire – that say from me that I convey my regards to Capt. Shelton? And shall expect his lady will send you for me one of his pictures – he will know my choice of position. Address it to Mrs. J. W. M. Appleton Ecxchange Bank Boston with my regards to Mrs. A. when you obtain an answer please forward to me. Mrs. Appleton is one of the most engaging and beautiful little ladies I ever saw not particularly beautiful in face, but with so much expression-amicability in every feature – She is very patriotic and while we were in cape at Readville she would come every day from Boston shine, or rain to see her husband-bringing out little luxuries for all the officers-everywhere her face bore cheerfulness about, and was welcomed to pleasure – she was not afraid of anything – so much so that one day when I was Lieut of Guard and was superior tending the firing of pieces at a mark – after we got through she came out, and insisted on firing a shot or two I loaded a gune, and she fired three time without assistance-although each time the recoil nearly knocked the have little lady over-then she would laugh and clap her hands, and try again until she nearly hit the target. Frequently she fired her husband’s pistol. She took quite a fancy to me and made me promise to send her my picture, and I should have the Captains. I am thankful that you and the children are progressing so nicely, and to the satisfaction of our dear parents. Strive constantly to please them in every way-you do not appreciate their love, and constant care until away from them as I have been so long – none can replace them when they are called away from Earth. Never allow your temper – that hot temper which I so often displayed surging through my veins, and exiting me to rash, and undutiful actions – to master your will for surely as there is some in heaven- you will sometime regret the day – remember dead Isa, I do not chide you for I know you strive in every way to please them – we all learn the error of our way as we increase in years. Direct by your example, the little ones who so readily follow an example set them. The climate here is very healthy, much more so than was expected – now the weather is much more comfortable and I slept last night with a blan-kit thrown over me-Several Sulter(?) vessels are in the inlet and we can obtain now, little things which for a long time, we have been without – yesterday I had the luxury of some ice-water, a vessel of the Sanitary Commission brought some – together with vegetables for the wounded. I wrote to Uncle the other day – my best love to him, and the family. I must finish, as it is nearly Dress Parade time (S.30V.No) by sending love to Mother, Father and the children and to your dead sister. Expecting soon to hear again from you.

LARGE ARCHIVE OF LETTERS, PHOTOGRAPHS AND EPHEMERA ASSOCIATED WITH CHESTER W. BURTON (UPSTATE, NY) AND OTHER FAMILY MEMBERS.

Chester Burton, son of Hiram Burton (War of 1812 Veteran) was born March 9, 1831 and died October 1, 1916. He retained a large archive of letters and documents dating from the early 19th century to the early 20th century. His friends wrote him from all over the country. A quick search finds about 25 Civil War era letters of which five are written by James Ogden of Company D 9th New York Cavalry, four of which are on patriotic stationary. There are also letters from several other soldiers. Another interesting letter written by an early homesteader from Grizzly Gulch, Montana Territory to Chester W. Burton on February 27, 1867 “…the greatest blessing in a cabin is strychnine (made from a local weed)…the mice were about to carry us off, cutting up our blankets and all sorts of…but the unkindest cut of all was to eat it cut up in our flour sack…wouldn’t…bring a Canada Scotchman and never having been fed by Uncle Sam where every other kernel of rice represents a mouse…” Letter from Hiram Burton stating he was a soldier in the War of 1812, enlisted in Captain Foresythe’s company 1st Company US Rifleman and several letters requesting disability from his wounds received in the War of 1812. Another interesting letter in this group is Chester W. Burton’s draft notice dated August 18, 1863 stating he will be deemed a deserter if he does not report for service at the rendezvous at Dunkirk, NY. The envelope this document is contained states that Chester is exempt by reason of a substitute. A letter from Chester’s brother is written from Denver City, CO in 1861 speaking of troops in area guarding the town. Another letter from his brother states he is in Platte River 10 miles east of Ft. Kerney on his way to Denver in 1865. Several other war time and post war letters from his brother in the west are found. There are over 500 letters in this archive, mostly from the 1850s through the 1880s, mostly 1850s-1870s of various content that need to be viewed by perspective bidders. Also included are typical financial documents concerning deeds and money transactions, numerous pamphlets, numerous family photographs circa 1860-1900 mostly taken by upstate New York photographers, about 25 postcards; American and European all postally sent to Chester Burton on family, legal documents and about 20 land indentures from upstate New York mostly from the 1840s, numerous other ephemera pieces including 5 bound account books and diaries circa 1890s, various receipts and broadside verse, 30 or 40 canceled checks some with tax stamps attached others with decorative vignettes, membership certificates, newspaper clippings, many small advertising pieces and magic lantern slides.

1926 FRANKLIN SERIES 11A 5 PASSENGER SPORT RUNABOUT “BOAT TAIL” WITH RUMBLE SEAT.

In the spring of 1925 Jose Motors, a dealership in Augusta Maine, had W.T. “Hum” Reynolds bring a new 1926 Series 11A Sport Runabout from the Franklin Factory in Syracuse, NY to their dealership in Maine. During its’ early life the Franklin had several Maine owners including members of the Reynolds family (dealership owner). It was purchased in 1951 by Robert Reynolds until 1990 when he sold it to David Michener of Pennsylvania who was a relative of John Cichocki and stored the car in Norridgewock, ME where it has been until we picked the car up from inside their barn. With the passing of John, the ownership has transferred to his wife Betty. John Cichocki painted the body white with black fenders and re-upholstered the interior and rumble seat. The car is virtually original with the engine, transmission and rear end having matching numbers. The top bows and top are missing and at some point in its life the windshield was slightly lowered. Odometer reading 59,532 and for most of its 88 years the Franklin has remained in two families and this is a phenomenal opportunity to own this rare “barn find.” Features include air-cooled 199 cubic inch straight 6 cylinder engine with 3 speed manual transmission, frame is made of 3-ply laminated seasoned ash which is covered with steel and aluminum. Front end tubular axle with full elliptical leaf springs. Rear semi-floating axles with full elliptical leaf springs cruising speed of 40-45 MPH. Body #471, Serial # 164434-2, engine #E112657. A re-printed operation manual, past registrations and other informative material accompanies the car. NOTE: H.H. Franklin and John Wilkinson founded the Franklin Automobile Co. in 1901 and remained in operation until 1934 when it fell victim to The Great Depression. The company, maker of luxury automobiles, is credited to have been “ahead of it’s time” in its development of the first 4 cylinder engine, an air-cooled 6 cylinder engine, and the use of aluminum for lighter weight vehicles. French auto designer, J.F. deCausse, joined the company in the early 1920’s and was responsible for Franklin’s new, radical, “boat tail” body style of the series II in 1925-26. SIZE: 61″ h x 69″ d x 178″ l. PROVENANCE: The estate of John Cichocki, a professional upholsterer of Norridgewock, ME. CONDITION: Very good as noted above.

COLLECTION OF WHITE HOUSE BRICKS.

1792-1817 Washington D.C. This collection removed from the White House during the near total renovation under president Harry Truman started in 1949 and completed in 1952. The public was afforded a brief opportunity to purchase various souvenir kits upon direct visitation to Pennsylvania Avenue. In consulting with an author who wrote a few chapters on the matter, 15 or so different kits were offered ranging from a single nail, to a piece of wood, to a chunk of limestone, single brick etc. There were a very select group of people who opted to purchase the most extravagant kit available, “enough bricks to build a fireplace.” This particular purchaser had no intention of purchasing such an expensive and frankly excessive lot, he accidentally checked the wrong box and a few months later a freight truck showed up at his doorstep with 800 pounds of brick and he paid for them and the transit costs via the Pennsylvania RR. The group is comprised of 16 complete bricks, some cracked, 7 mostly complete examples approx 75% whole, approximately 29 fragments 25%-35% whole, and an assortment of fragments of varying size. The collection is accompanied by 1 plaque of authenticity attached to a brick, and a second, unattached plaque, supplied to the original purchaser by the Commission on Renovation of the Executive Mansion. Also accompanying the collection is a newspaper clipping with a story with photo of the original purchaser, a photo of Roy Wise showing one of his bricks, and two letters on White House stationary written by and for Major General Glen E. Edgerton, the Executive Director of the renovation project. Both are addressed to Roy L. Wise. SIZE: Size of full brick- 8-3/4″ X 4-1/4″ X 2-3/8″. PROVENANCE: Sold to the present owner by the family of the original purchaser and accompanied by documentation & authentication plaque.

In this image, the girl in a semi-reclining pose with a beautiful straw bonnet filled with flowers, sits in her white dress and her dog lies at her feet.
