    Description

    Set of Maps (6), 1838-1840, of the Sabine River:
    Andrew B. Gray. Map of the River Sabine from Logan's Ferry to 32nd. Degree of North Latitude. Printed in Washington in 1842. This is one of six maps issued in Senate Document number 199, a report on the boundary survey between the Republic of Texas and the United States. Drawn by A.B. Gray, engraved by W.J. Stone and signed by J.H. Overton, U.S. Commissioner. The act passed making Louisiana a state in 1812 contained a clause defining its boundaries. When Texas became a Republic, these borders came into question.

Eng." and were authenticated by James Kearney, Lt. Col.

    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.
