    [Texas Rangers]. Robert Hall Albumen Card Photograph Signed, circa 1880. 6.75" x 9.75". This studio photograph features Texas Ranger Robert Hall (who has placed his signature on the verso) posing with his prized animal skins while holding a rifle and wearing buckskins. He is joined in the photograph by a sitting man who is identified in the title appearing at bottom. Hall served as a Texas Ranger under Hays in the 1840s. Title in the negative reads: "S.B. Witchell and his guide / San Antonio Texas." Backstamped by photographer D. P. Barr of San Antonio, with a period identification on verso at top right. Age toning and evidence of dampstaining on verso. Small tear to albumen along left margin. An unpublished image late in life, clearly taken for the benefit of the Witchell; it has only recently surfaced.

    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.
