About this Item

American philanthropist, pacifist, reformer and social activist whose early training as a black smith combined with an uncanny ability to learn languages earned him the moniker "The Learned Blacksmith"; in 1846 he formed the League of Universal Brotherhood, organizing world peace congresses and traveling and writing tirelessly for the cause. ALS, 1p, 5" X 8", New Britain, CT, 1873 May 21. Addressed to Mrs. Ogden. Very good. Paper clip rust stain at center of left edge. Cordial note to a lady acquaintance: "I remember with great pleasure meeting you at the Lake House, Lake George, last summer. I hope you and your sister and all near & dear to you are quite well, -- that you all weathered the long cold winter & spring comfortably. I want to send you one of my little books as a souvenir of my acquaintance with you." A charming example. Bookseller Inventory # 27162
