    Greeley & Brown: Accordion-Style Paper Campaign Lantern. Greeley display pieces are few and far between. This paper lantern falls into that category and should appeal to fans of the Sage of Chappaqua and torchlight parades. It is printed in blue and purple. The central roundel has clasped hands and the words "Greeley and Brown" encircled by stars. The same design appears on both sides. The clasped hands were symbolic of reconciliation between North and South. Greeley was ridiculed for remarks made in a speech: "Let us clasp hands over the bloody chasm." The condition is outstanding, as the item apparently did not see use. The wire bail handle and candle holder are still in place, suspended in time. When extended, it is approximately 12" tall.

    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.
