    In 1836 William Wharton, Stephen F. Austin, and Branch T. Archer addressed the public in various meeting halls in attempts to secure aid to the Texans in their time of need. Wharton's address was enthusiastically received by a sympathetic audience who had read of the fall of the Alamo and the Massacre at Goliad. Austin's address had been previously printed in Lexington earlier in the year. Streeter writes: "Among 'Other Documents' is a reprinting of the Declaration of Independence. This is probably its first printing in pamphlet form as its printing in Washington, D.C. late in May, 1836 was almost certainly later."

    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.
