About this Item

Noted Presbyterian preacher and author affiliated with the Lafayette Avenue Church in Brooklyn, New York. ALS, 2pp (1st and 3rd leaves), 5" X 8", Brooklyn, NY, 1865 November 27. Addressed to George May Powell. Very good. Powell, a photographer, had sent Cuyler a print of a large photo montage he was marketing, "Being a group of Portraits of all those members of Congress who voted for the AMENDMENT of the CONSTITUTION PROHIBITING SLAVERY, with those of President LINCOLN and Vice-President HAMLIN added." Cuyler's response is the "blurb" Powell had requested for use in a leaflet he was preparing advertising this photograph: "The likenesses are excellent; the idea is happy -- and the engraving ought to be on every loyal citizens' wall. 'Honor to whom honor is due'. And on that roll, who deserve better from a grateful country than the Congress which put slavery into its charnel-house? [It] deserves a place beside my 'Emancipation Proclamation' of dear departed Lincoln." On the blank fourth leaf, Cuyler adds and initials a sentiment: "Our temperance cause brightens. Lay hold & help.". Bookseller Inventory # 22683
