About this Item

Printed wraps. Pamphlet. 22 pp. Two letters written to Francis O.J. Smith refuting Smith's claims that Greene is a 'scoundrel and coward,' as well as a 'liar.' Greene then calls into question the character of Smith, as well as his political career, while at the same time correcting misinformation about his (Greene's) own life. This exchange appears to be the result of financial problems of H.W. Greene and his time as editor of the Eastern Argus, involving loans or potential loans from Smith to Greene. Greene alleges Smith did not like Greene due to his refusal of publishing a puff piece on Smith. With many asides casting aspersions on the financial and political career of Smith. Francis Ormond Jonathan Smith was a New Hampshire born Maine politician and lawyer, perhaps best known for his role in assisting Samuel B. Morse in developing and introducing the electric telegraph. Smith provided financial backing, as well as counsel to Morse, and financed the establishment of several early telegraph lines, although financial disputes with Morse and other financial problems led to Smith's failure in those endeavors (Wikipedia). GOOD condition. Several signatures in ink and pencil to the front cover. Heavy chipping, creasing, tearing and folding over along the extremities. Minor soiling. A few small stains present. Mostly minor general foxing and toning to the paper. Sabin 28603. Bookseller Inventory # 007347
