Lovely archive from the noted American women's rights advocate including: (1) an autograph letter, two pages, 5" x 8", Chicago, July 12, 1869, to James Redpath, American journalist and anti-slavery advocate, saying she will be very glad to have add her name to his list of lecturers, in part: "...Does that prevent my making engagements directly with parties who write me?...I shall be happy to lecture in that course for 'the people proper - 'the working classes'...". With some mounting remnants on the verso, else fine. (2) an undated autograph manuscript being the last page of an article about a scholarly undertaking, one page, 5" x 6.75", slightly toned with some minor foxing, else near fine.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
