    Irish Patriot Daniel O'Connell Letter Signed L.S. "Daniel O'Connell", 2pp., 7.25" x 9", Darrymore Abbey, Cahirciveen, Oct. 11, 1846, marked "confidential" at top and addressed to Torrens McCullogh, Esq., regarding O'Connell's son-in-law. In part: "I wish you to make a note for me that the person for whom I applied to Lord Fortescue is my son-in-law Charles O'Connell, as I stated in my letter to the Lord Lieutenant. I want to take care that whatever is done there should be no mistake. My son-in-law is Charles O'Connell of Ballanablow, a restored Magistrate for the County of Kerry. I say this because there is another Charles O'Connell of the County of Clare for whom I am anxious - but, I am not so anxious for him as I am for my son-in-Law. All I want is, that you should prevent there being any mistake, whatever may be done." Light stain to integral sheet likely caused by original seal, usual folds, otherwise near fine condition.

    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.
