    [Civil War] The Daily Delta Newspaper. Vol. 17, No. 127, two pages, 17" x 22.5", New Orleans. April 30, 1862. Printed after the fall of New Orleans. The main article, which occupies three-quarters of the front page and headed "Fallen But Not Disgraced," begins: "Let us not be humiliated. New Orleans has borne herself in this great struggle as became the renown of her people. She has fought, singly and alone, with her own resources, and those of a small State...the naval and military power of a great nation of twenty millions of people...She has kept that hostile nation at bay for more than twelve months." Following the article is a letter by Confederate General Mansfield Lovell, who was posted to New Orleans shortly after the war began and was criticized throughout the South over the loss of the city, addressed to "Judge Walker" and dated April 29, 1862 which "presents a clear and satisfactory vindication of his course in the defense of this city." The back page is comprised mostly of advertisements. The document is heavily toned and the edges are worn and torn in places, especially the bottom left corner, but the text is still bold and legible. Vertical and horizontal creases are evident. Very good.

    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.
