Item Description: Published By Croswell & Frary, Albany NY, 1808. Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good with no dust jacket. First Edition. 80 pages; First Edition Antique New York History Law True Crime. Elisha Jenkins was an American politician who served as New York Secretary of State and Mayor of Albany. He was born to a Providence, Rhode Island, Quaker family, who in 1784 came to settle at Hudson, New York. He later lived in Albany, New York, and was one of the first prominent Quakers there. Throughout his adult life, he was a dry goods merchant in the partnerships of Wendell & Jenkins and Thomas Jenkins & Sons. In 1792, he married Catherine Green (ca. 1771-1835) , of Providence, R. I. After her death he married his second wife, Hannah. He was a Federalist member of the New York State Assembly from Columbia County in 1795 and 1798, but changed sides in 1798 when his close political friend Ambrose Spencer joined the Democratic-Republicans. Jenkins was Columbia County Treasurer from 1798 to 1802, and New York State Comptroller from 1801 to 1806. He was New York Secretary of State from 1806 to 1807, from 1808 to 1810, and from 1811 to 1813. In April 1807, after his first term as Secretary of State, Jenkins was attacked in the street in Albany by Solomon Van Rensselaer, a Federalist of whom Jenkins was a fierce critic. Jenkins sued for damages, and was awarded $2,500. He served as Quartermaster General of the Northern Department during the War of 1812, Mayor of Albany from 1816 to 1819, and presidential elector in 1840.

The four men whose cases are represented in this publication were among the "who's-who" of early New York state politicians. In 1807, Solomon Van Rensselaer, (the a rising federalist, later a U. S. Congressman) became incensed by a resolution questioning his honesty put forward by Elisha Jenkins (then Secretary of New York State). According to witnesses, Van Rensselaer stalked Jenkins through the streets of Albany and, catching up with him, severely beat him with his cane. In retaliation, John Tayler (the New York State senator, later Lieutenant (and acting) Governor of New Yor) , Charles D. Cooper (First Judge of Albay and Tayler's son-in-law) , and Francis Bloodgood (Jenkins' newphew and, later, Mayor of Albany) attacked Van Rensselaer, wounding him badly enough that he was not expected to live. Jenkins eventually sued Van Rensselaer for damages. Van Rensselaer simultaneously sued Tayler, Cooper and Bloodgood. Offered here are reports on the testimonies and court proceedings surrounding these arbitrations. This antique string-bound is in its printed wrappers. Th. Bookseller Inventory # 36075
