About this Item

Low began his adult life in the family China trade business but went on to be mayor of Brooklyn, President of Columbia University, a diplomatic representative of the United States, and mayor of New York City. In that latter position he was a strong municipal reformer, introducing the civil service system and attempting to root out police corruption. Here he sends a thoughtfully reminiscent note of sympathy on the death of the Rev. Dr. Shields (Charles Woodruff Shields); his "Mrs. Stockton" was probably Charlotte, Mrs. Bayard Stockton, the deceased's daughter. Provenance: Ex?Allyn K. Ford Collection, Minnesota Historical Society, recently deaccessioned. 12mo (7" x 4.5"). 3 pp. Very good condition. Low's is not a very difficult hand, but someone has lightly, interlinearly pencilled in the words s/he found hard to decipher. Bookseller Inventory # 33395
