    Saddle Bags Used by a Tennessee Doctor For His Medical Equipment, Circa 1870-1875. A pair of small brown-leather saddle bags, each pouch measuring approximately 8" x 6", and each stamped on the front flap "ELLIOTT'S PATENT / GRANTED JAN 1870 / ST. LOUIS, MO. / SOLE PROPRIETOR". Each small bag has two metal-lined trays, the bottom tray hinged to allow it to swing slightly forward to facilitate access. The flaps are secured via small key-hole hasps.

The leather is well worn with much crazing and scuffing, with some cracks and abrasions on the back of each.

    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.
