‎Anti Slavery. The Massachusetts State Texas Committee Conducted By. Adams Charles F.; Bowditch Henry I.‎

‎The FREE STATE RALLY And TEXAS CHAIN BREAKER. Vol. 1. No. 1. Saturday November 15 1845‎

‎Boston:: Jordan & Wiley. 1845. Folio. 14" x 10-1/4". 1st edition Dumond p. 54. 4 pp 1 printed sheet folded. Self-wrappers. Evenly staggered binding 'punch' holes to fold side of paper. Minor. extremity wear. Faint vertical & horizontal fold lines. Withal a. VG copy of this scarce abolitionist newspaper. This newspaper attempted to rally support against the pro-Slavery forces which envisioned Texas if granted statehood as one in their camp. "That question . whether they the inhabitants of Texas are to consist of slaves and slaveholders. whether slavery is to be nursed and protected in that vast territory." The rear page has printed 'cut-out post- cards' addressed to the Senate & the House protesting the annexation of Texas "for various reasons but especially" if slavery is allowed. This the first of an eventual 6 issues ceasing publication with the January 12 1846 issue after 'the Texas Question' had been answered. Texas had been admitted as a state of the Union December 29 1845. Scarce. While not unknown in an institutional environment copies of this Abolitionist serial are infrequently encountered today on the commercial market- no copies at auction these last 30 years.

‎(SLAVERY -- LEDGER BOOK). CONNELL, JAMES M. (?-?).‎

‎Autograph Document Signed.‎

‎Guardian and manager of the estate of a young man (presumably) named WILLIAM NEAL, the extend of whose holdings and business dealings suggest a Southern plantation origin. ADS, 2pp (single leaf, both sides), 22" X 17", n.p. 27 August 1829 through 1 August 1831. Very good. Bit of minor age toning, with modest separations along one fold -- overall quite bold and extremely attractive, accomplished on a high-quality heavy stock. Across both pages, in a huge and neat cursive, is written "Dr. Estate of William Neal in account with James M. Connell Guardian of William Neal." Fascinating summation from this young gentleman's account book, with each page divided into columns. Each page is divided in half, with each half containing a slim column at left for the date, a large center column for the description of the payment or sale, and a slim column at right for the amount. A delightful range of transactions, both monies taken in and paid out, are recorded. Top of first column notes: "I have had valued to me.. on the 9th June 1830 three negroes to wit one Girl Biddy valued at three hundred Dollars one Girl Delia valued at Two hundred and seventy five Dollars and one Boy Peter Branch valued at Two hundred and sixty two Dollars and fifty cents.." Further down on same column, an intriguing line item records a payment "To BM Burch time lost by negro." Next column over begins with a "Memorandum of Property received by me and receipted to BM Patteson for 1829": "Seven negro men viz. Jacob, Ned, Peter, Phillip, Thomas, Randal, and Harman, Ten negro Boys viz. Paschal, Peter Branch, Burwell, Renard, George, David, Hercules, Charles, Joseph, and James, Eight negro Woman viz. Anna, Miller, Hannah, Dolly, Sally, Grace, Am'ny, and Louisa, six Young Woman.. Eight Young Girls.." -- a sizeable number of slaves (39) suitable to a plantation -- followed by "Eleven Head of Horses Seventy five head of Sheep Small Stock of Hoggs.." Further down the same column is recorded the January 23, 1830 "Sale of negro Girl Beck sold under an execution" for $335 and a line-by-line listing for what appears to be the "hire" (renting) of ten male and female slaves for amounts ranging from $32 to $75. Neal must have been a young man, for amounts paid to "Tuition" are recorded. Signed boldly by Connell at the conclusion, together with his title, "Guardian of William Neal." An insightful look into the financial affairs of a young man of means in the antebellum period. Quite displayable and quite uncommon. .‎

‎(SLAVERY -- WRIT OF REPLEVIN -- ST. CHARLES, MISSOURI). TUTER, REUBEN (?-?).‎

‎Document Signed.‎

‎Confidant of Missouri pioneer Jonathan Bryan (1759-1846) of the noted St. Charles family whose relatives included their neighbor Daniel Boone. DS, 1p, 7½" X 12", St. Charles County, MO, 1847 February 2. Near fine. Acknowledgment that Tuter, who signs himself as "Administrator of the Estate of Johnathan Bryan," has had a writ of replevin made out and issued to the St. Charles sheriff, Edward C. Cunningham (1809-65), for delivery to an unnamed offender. The writ seeks to recover the following property apparently wrongfully taken from Jonathan Bryan's estate: "one negro man a Slave named Heney one Two horse waggon and one pair of Briches Two Black horses one Lorrel horse with bold face one walnut Cupboard one clock one Bureau one bedstead and bedding one walnut Table one Trunk one Bible.." In other words, everything but the kitchen sink. Signed at the conclusion by Tater (in his definitely untutored hand). Tales of slaves are found in the Bryan family lore, such as: "Mrs. Jonathan Bryan, a kinswoman of Daniel Boone, was working in her yard with a slave woman when a boy slave screamed. She saw an Indian warrior heading for them with a tomahawk in one hand, and a gun in the other. The women ran for the house. Just as they were slamming the door, they caught the warrior's head and right arm between the door and facing. The slave woman grabbed the hatchet from his hand and killed him with a sharp blow. The women had barely recovered from their fright when the boy shouted again.." Could the slave boy in this old family legend by none less than the "Slave named Heney" whose return is demanded in this replevin suit? Quite unusual slavery item with an intriguing history. .‎
