    Rutherford B. Hayes: Dual-Portrait Tin & Paper Parade Lantern. Possibly unique 10" lantern of tapering form. It consists of a coated stock "insert" around the entire circumference of the piece. It has die-cut openings for stars and a die-cut opening to display the portrait of the candidate. One side shows "Hayes." and the other "Wheeler." A lid at the top opens to gain access to the candle holder. A wire bracket or bale-handle is meant for insertion in a wooden pole. Some discoloration or "bleeding" with some tears, repaired in the interior with linen tape. Good condition overall and somewhat of a miracle it has survived at all. Pictured on page 341 of Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.'s Running for President: The Candidates and Their Images 1789-1896, volume 2.

    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.
