    Harriet Beecher Stowe Autograph Letter Signed "H B Stowe". One page, 5" x 8", November 3, 1884, n.p., to an unnamed recipient, containing Stowe's emphasized presidential choice for the 1884 election written on the day before the election. In part: "I find it in my drawer this morning & tho it be late in the day, I say I am and ever have been avowedly, strongly enthusiastically for Blaine & that I abhor as a mother should, the vile example set by Grover Cleveland." Stowe, abolitionist and author of Uncle Tom's Cabin, was certainly disappointed with the election outcome. With small tape discoloration below the signature, else fine. Included is a 5" x 7" engraving of Stowe.

    You reach a customer base that is in many ways completely unknown to the major auction houses, and your marketing to this base is as professional as one could hope for. As I continue to wind down my holdings.
