Manuscript--A Clever roman à clé in the Style of the O.T. re a Church in Philadelphia, circa 1810 [Methodist? Episcopal?] 1810 Paper covered boards Good Manuscript book 16.8 x 19.9cm. Philadelphia, Pa. 
ANONYMOUS. The Book of the Times or a History of the War. Understandest thou what thou readest? Philip. How can I except some men should guide me? Eunuch. A e i o u l m n r. Manuscript, one volume, 44 pages [Philadelphia area, circa 1810?] 16.8 x 19.9cm. $400.00 This is an exceedingly clever roman à clé done in the style of the Old Testament scripture. Divided into three "books" of multiple chapters, it documents the turbulent differences within a religious community, apparently in Philadelphia or the area. The volume contains first names only. When person of the same name are mentioned, the anonymous author might write "William surnamed P," "William surnamed N," and "Henry F." on occasion. The text commences with the difficulties of Henry, an elder who opposed the church leadership's plans to renovate their sanctuary and in the process sell commercial space on the cellar floors. Led by Samuel, the meeting clerk (or "Scribe" as the writer has it, Henry was forced out after being accused of adultery. To prove the accusation of his critics "bort forth an Harlot, who testified that Henry was the Father of one of her two Children." This escalates rather than calms the situation. Further disputes arise, power struggles flare, personalities clash, and a minute-book with key document is mysteriously mutilated. All seems to culminate in arguments over control of the church's "Chartered Fund," that is to say its endowment. There are references to ministering to prisoners and Africans and also to "a new sect who call themselves The Society of Hospitality." A delightful and cleverly-done manuscript. The manuscript is bound thick card cover with Pennsylvania-Dutch style tulip decorated paper on the outside. Written over the decorated paper on the back cover & upside down is "Philadelphia Pennsylvania William Book." The spine is covered with a blue piece of printed paper that reads "Controller's Copy Book. No. 3. Published by J.B. Smith & Co., Booksellers and Stationers, No. 207 Market St., above 5th, Phila." Blue paper chipped and split along lower half of spine, tulip paper rubbed through the decoration in places, contents with moderate to heavy foxing--a dark stain in top inside of most pages, several pages loose or almost loose but not lacking any pages. Written in a very legible longhand. 12cm tear in last leaf but no loss of text.

14 Cecil A love letter with plans for property and marriage and a trip to Ohio
1916 Manuscript letter 
Manuscript love letter re plans for property in Ohio & marriage, WV[?] Feb 8, 1916

A love letter with plans for property and marriage and a trip to Ohio. Three sheets of linen style paper 16.3 x 26.2cm folded 2 ways. In gray neat hand. Some light foxing. Dated Feb. 8, 1916. $45.00

The letter starts with "Hellow Monchere Feb. 8,-1916. My Dear Dear Lover:" It commences with a lengthy apology for not writing sooner then recounts a trip the author took to Ohio to visit friends to look and try to purchase a farm. "You know I have had a little trip out in Ohio of late and was among friends and in the level country for just a week.... Then E.E. and I left Ron. [Ronceverte?] on No. 5. And arrived at Rushylvania Ohio at 5 o'clock Fri. evening, went out to my Friends Mr. McCulloch's and spent the night. Then Sat. morning John McC., Earl and I went out to the farm there which joins to theirs, and took a good look over all of it, and the buildings as well, everything about the place looked very well and very well it had been cared for.... I started home Thursday morning and after having a good chance to look over a part of Columbus left there at 4-20 and arrived home next morning on No. 4. had quite a long wait in Huntington at night for 4, which was late... altho there wasn't a bit of snow there, when I left, but plenty here when I got home. Most every one out there that knew me wanted to know what time this spring I was going to get married and come there to live.... Now You are anxious to know of course if Earl and I made a deal. We have not closed it yet but I am almost shure we will because his is anxious to get out there providing the better half will get the same notion soon.... You know Honey I sometimes think I am missing the happiest part of this life by going on as I have and never having a home of my own with the one I love... And I will say just now that is one of the reasons why I considered a proposition of my brothers, And if we close this deal, which I expect we will soon, it will make a great deal of difference with me about the future, in regard to asking You to become my wife..." In the last paragraph he discusses visiting her again soon with her permission but "as the roads and traveling is now, it makes a trip that far quite a task, And I don't know how would be the easiest way of going. Any way I am coming to see You some time soon if You will permit me to do so. I will look for Your letter some time soon. And will close with all love and greetings to You My Dear. A sweet good by with love, Cecil."

FINLEY, GEORGE W. Manuscript Diary of George W. Finley, Romney, WV, covering years 1884-1885. 6 x 15.5cm.

George Williamson Finley (1838-1909) First Lieutenant, 56th Virginia Infantry, one of the few men who crossed the stone wall beside Gen Lewis Armistead at Gettysburg during Pickett's charge. Finley was beside Armistead as the general lost consciousness on the battlefield. He was taken prisoner, spending the next two years in Unions prisons including at Hilton Head were he became one of the Confederate "Immortal 600." Finley was born Dec. 1, 1838 in Yanceyville, NC. but was raised in Clarksville, VA. He entered Hampden-Sydney College but graduated from Washington College (now Washington & Lee) in 1856. Finley enrolled as a captain in the Confederate Army on May 12, 1861. While he was a prisoner, he decided to become a minister and entered Union Theological Seminary in 1866. He served as pastor in Romney, WV from 1870-1892; then was appointed evangelist for the Abingdon, Virginia Presbytery; and then pastor of the Tinkling Springs Presbyterian Church, Fishersville, VA 1903-1909.

The journal consists of lined pages with one page for every day of the year. Finley used the same journal for both 1884 and 1885. The same date as 1884 has the correct day of the week penned in along with "85" at the head of the entry. Pagination of the journal: (32) printed pages including color title & typical almanac material, (366) lined pages for each day, (3) lined memoranda pages, (39) ledger accounting pages. The contents are brief summary of what he did most days, from riding to a parishoner's house to baptize their infant or perform a marriage to "Bred our cow to Bob Fisher's ½ Jersey" or "went fishing quite successful," and "At home--in garden Planted potatoes." It references a revival/special meetings in his church in Jan/Feb. of 1884: "All agree that this meeting must go on prayer meeting to preaching. For several nights I have invited after preaching, all who desired God's blessing in themselves or others to come into the Lecture room. Almost the whole congregation comes--a Solemn Service." Feb. 3 "Closed meeting a very solemn service. Praise to God for His wonderful mercy--Oh to be more faithful. In one way or another about 30 persons express some interest in Salvation, 10 or 12 indulge hope. On May 4, 1884 he mentions his 25th wedding anniversary: "Cumberland, Md.... This is the 25th Anniversary of My Marriage. How great the Lord has been to spare my dear wife to me so long." He and his wife had 14 children of which 9 survived his death. He mentions them Sept 4, 1885 "John & Willie started to Mossy Creek, Jno. to teach & Willie to go to school. God bless the dear boys..." Ledger pages at the end are filled in with financial records for his church.

Entries also include references to his past in the Confederate army: May 29, 1885 "Moorefield before 3pm Address to Ladies Memorial Association to aid them in purchasing Headstone for the Confederate Dead buried in the Cemetery at M." or Aug. 13 1884 "Reunion of Ex. Confederates at Pancakes Sulpher Spring. Large attendance--pleasant day..." June 6, 1885 "Came home to attend the Exercises of Memorial Day. The largest crowd I ever saw in Romney... 12 or 1500 people..."

He traveled a good bit on the newly built railroads in his area: Aug. 20, 1884 "Started with Willie for Thomas on W.Va. Central & Pittsburgh R.R...." Aug. 22, 1884 "Walked with Willie over to the mouth of Beaver Creek on Blackwater--the proposed site of Davis the present terminus W.Va.C. & P. R.R. Boarded at Robt. Eastham's the only home except a few laborer's huts. Aug 24, 1884 "At Easthams to preach forbidden by the Dr. because my throat. How I long to quicken those RailRoad hands & preach to them. No Sabbath for these poor people in the wilderness." Then on Sept 1, 1884 "Cora, Jno. & Lul Eggleston left 1st train over So. Branch Railway..." On that date the South Branch Railroad Company complete its first section from its connection with the B&O RR at Green Spring, WV to Romney WV. Finley also made many trips to Richmond Va. where he was on the Board of Trustees of Hampden-Sidney College "H.S. College."

Sold with the journal: Finley's 1889 pass for travel on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, boldy signed by him on the verso, "Order for Clerical Ticket. This Order is good only when Officially Stamped for the purchase of tickets to and from Stations on Main Line and Branches East of the Ohio River." Good+ condition.

GLADSTONE, WILLIAM EWART. D.s. Signed document: "We the undersigned Bishops, Clergy, and Communicants, in communion with the Church of England, while we abstain from entering upon the high and holy doctrines upon which, by the providence of Almighty God, so happy an agreement was reached at the conference held at Bonn in August last, between members of the Old Catholic, the Orthodox Oriental, and the Anglican Churches, desire to express our profound gratitude... We desire finally to express our gratitude to those Members of the Old Catholic and the Orthodox Churches, who were under Divine Providence, the instruments of this important gathering, and especially to its originator and President, Dr. Von Dollinger." Below this are the signatures of: "W.E. Gladstone; Stephen S. Gladstone, R. of Hawarden St. Asaph; Albert V. Lyttelton C. do.; Charles Gamler C. do.; John Lightfoot L[?] helper Hawarden; Joseph Baines Curate of St. John's Hawarden; W.H. Gladstone, M.P."

1 sheet paper, printed both sides, 20.5 x 23.3cm. Printed statement on recto with 7 signatures below. Verso with printed address: "Secretary of Address, 55, Charing Cross, London, W.S." With fold lines, and tears starting at folds, two small corners torn off, another small piece torn at end of fold, small hole in upper left corner.

Hawarden: parish in N. Wales near Chester, England; site of Hawarden Castle, built 1752 near ruins of medieval castle and long the residence of Gladstone. The document relates to the Bonn Conferences held "in 1874 and 1875 under the presidency of John Dollinger. Their purpose was to foster reunion between the Churches which had retained the faith and order of historic Christianity. Their direction was in the hands of the newly formed branch of the Old Catholics, though Dollinger never formally joined them.

Two main interests occupied the conferences: to clarify the basic position of the Old Catholic Churches, and arrive at some agreement between the Old Catholics on the one hand and the Eastern Orthodox and Anglicans on the other. The fundamental statement of belief had to wait fifteen years, but the principles of reunion were broadly agreed upon in a series of declarations that have more than historic value because they paved the way for similar ventures in the ecumenical movement of the present century.
Outstanding among the fourteen articles of unanimous agreement with the Anglicans were the acceptance of the Protestant canon of the Old Testament, denial of real merit before God for good works performed, rejection of "works of supererogation" in the practice of the counsels, belief that five of the seven sacraments are the fruit of later theological speculation, acknowledgment of the unbroken apostolic succession in the English Church, denial of the Immaculate Conception and that the Eucharistic celebration is a "repetition or renewal" of the sacrifice of Calvary.

Concord with the Orthodox centered around the procession of the Holy Spirit in the Trinity, which included the admission the "Holy Spirit does not issue out of the Son, because in the Godhead there is only one beginning." The Anglicans did not universally accept this compromise with the Orthodox. Among others, Edward Pusey of Oxford Movement fame was quite intransigent in his opposition to any tampering with the Western tradition on the Filioque in the Nicene Creed."--Fr. John Hardon: Religions of the World, Part Two, Chapter 17, Old Catholic Churches, accessed at http://www.therealpresence.org/archives/Protestantism/Protestantism_036.htm 02/28/10.
