April 14th is the 140th anniversary of Lincoln's assassination. R&R is pleased to announce the auction of an important Lincoln signed note, written just nine days before his death...

War dated ALS as president, signed “A. Lincoln,” one page, 5 x 6.75, January 6, 1862. President Lincoln writes to his Secretary of State, calling a cabinet meeting, already known to Secretary of War Simon Cameron. In full, “Please notify the members of the Cabinet (except Sec. of War, who already knows it) to meet a Committee here at half past 7 this evening.” In fine condition, with mild overall toning, several folds and a couple trivial spots. In 1860, Simon Cameron had substantial support at the Republican national convention as a candidate for both the presidency and the vice presidency. But he saw that he did not have the whole-hearted support he needed to win, so he threw his own support to Abraham Lincoln. As President, Lincoln rewarded Cameron by appointing him his Secretary of War, a crucial position as the nation became embroiled in its Civil War. Cameron's strong views on aggressive war measures, which included his desire to arm fugitive slaves, drew heated opposition from other Cabinet members, and was questioned by Lincoln himself. In January 1862, Edwin M. Stanton, Cameron’s legal adviser, helped him write his yearly report; in it, Stanton ghost-wrote for Cameron a proposition that slaves freed by Union troops be immediately emancipated and used in the war effort, either as laborers or as armed troops: “It shall be found that the men who have been held by the rebels as slaves are capable of bearing arms and performing efficient military service, it is the right, and may become the duty, of this Government to arm and equip them, and employ their services against the rebels, under proper military regulations, discipline and command. But in whatever manner they may be used by the Government, it is plain that, once liberated by the rebellious act of their masters, they should never again be restored to bondage.” Unfortunately, Lincoln felt that the nation was not ready for emancipation and for arming Blacks as soldiers, and censored Cameron's report, demanding the removal of the portions referring to emancipation and arming former slaves.  Cameron complied, but sent uncensored copies of the report to the newspapers, infuriating those members of the administration who opposed hard-line dealings with the southern states. The resulting furor was one of several reasons that Lincoln ironically replaced Cameron with Edwin Stanton, and it would be another year before Lincoln would produce his historic Emancipation Proclamation.

Chilling foreshadowing: John Wilkes Booth signs a book entitled Rifles and Rifle Practice, less than three weeks after his own brush with death at the hands of his leading lady and less than four years before he would assassinate Abraham Lincoln

Signed book: Rifles And Rifle Practice. NY: D. Van Nostrand, 1859. Hardcover, 5 x 7.75, 276 pages. Signed in fountain pen on the inside front cover, “John Wilkes Booth, May 10, 1861”. On April 26th, 1861, exactly four years before his death, Wilkes completed a performance at the Green Street Gayety Theatre in Albany, New York and returned to his hotel room with his leading lady, Henrietta Irving. After the two began drinking heavily, Irving accused Booth of having won her affections falsely. In a fit of jealous rage, real or imagined, she brandished a knife and lunged at his chest. Wilkes threw up his arm and the blade grazed his head. Apparently believing that she had killed Booth, she rushed back to her own room and stabbed herself, though not seriously. It was undoubtedly events like this which led to wild speculation at theater parties everywhere in the North during the war. In fine condition, with some light wrinkling to right edge of signed cover, not affecting signature, some light wear and spotting to covers, mild toning and foxing to some of the text pages and some wear and tear to pull-out illustrations. COA John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and R&R COA.
