McPHERSON-40913-1.jpg LETTER FROM THE DIRECTOR OF THE GETTYSBURG BATTLEFIELD MEMORIAL ASSOCIATION
McPHERSON (Edward, 1830-1895, American Newspaper Editor and Congressman)

Autograph Letter Signed to J. Wallace, in Harrisburg, saying that he has "commenced this note well. I dated it Harrisburg, so accustomed have I become to writing from that point. A little time and scribbling a few notes will make me as familiar as ever with the name I should first have written, I received the other day my watch seal from Philad@. It has the coat of arms engraved upon it and in the most beautiful manner. The seal itself is of cornelian, and is of a conical-triangular shape, and is so so massive and showy and beautiful that I am half ashamed to wear it. I will stamp this letter with the seal. The impression sent with it in wax is almost perfect. It is such a one as you have of yours. I have not got off to Hagerstown yet and begin to think that mother will not go. Before my return her desire to pay Kate a visit arose mainly in my opinion from her discontent and unhappiness at the time and as she is becoming better reconciled she feels less the desire for change. Do not expect her to take the trip at present. I may possibly pay them a flying visit in a couple of weeks, but am not particularly anxious as to the time. We have not heard any further tidings from Phila. The last were favourable - they consisted of a conversation of one of our citizens with Dr Kirkbride, in which he expressed his opinion that the symptoms were favourable. Dr Gilbert told me he would write today or tomorrow & we may therefore expect a reply in the course of a week. Since my return I have thought of various matters connected with his sickness and it struck me to ask you whether any measures had been taken to secure him the benefits of the Sons of Temperance or the other similar institutions in Harrisburg, of which he is a member. It appears to me that I had a conversation on the subject with you but I have forgotten the tenor of it. The amount he would justly receive would be of use to his family under the circumstances ...", 2 sides 4to., with original autograph envelope postmarked Gettysburg with the seal that he refers to in the letter, 29th May

RAY-40901-1.jpg LETTER FROM THE KILLER OF MARTIN LUTHER KING
RAY (James Earl, 1928-1998, American Felon convicted of killing Martin Luther King in 1968)

Fine Typed Letter Signed from Prison to Nick Bougas thanking him for his suggestions and saying that "The publisher just had 1000 copies run off in the 1st edition, and we are now in the process of printing a revised edition. I may have mentioned it earlier but the guy who edited the book left the country apparently to avoid a misdemeanor tax conviction -- he is connected to an organisation that lobbies against the fed. tax laws. Anyway he had most of the book material in a computer which the others in the office don't have access to. So the next edition will take a little more work than usual. In addition we are adding some updated material in the 2nd & toning down certain passages ... When the 2nd edition is printed I will let you know about sending 12 or whatever copies ... The picture is enclosed. The sketch looks ok. Anna is an artist. She used to be a courtroom artist. I'll send you the labels or a book plate when I hear about the next edition. I doubt if I could actually sign ...", 1 side 4to., with original envelope stamped "The writer of this letter is a resident of a penal Institution", Petros, TN 37845, 3rd June
