Anne Grant ALS

Anne Grant (1755 – 1838). Scottish poet. ALS. 1 ½ pages with integral address leaf. To a friend, Grant writes a lengthy letter;

21st January 1832

My Dear Sir Why should I not say my dear friend when I feel myself have an interior claim upon you to that effect before I proceed further I must in justice say that I have no where met with warmer gratitude and attachment than from the few Americans to who I show civilities Services were quite out of my power But whatever I did came from the Heart & was so understood this serves to cover an answer to a letter full of affection and gratitude from Mr. Andrew Bigelowe who it appears had written twice some time ago no doubt in the same stile without receiving any answer, I think I could scarce be such a Savage as to neglect so much kindness. One of his or mine must have been lost This letter was brought by a very pleasing relation of his Stevens by name Who is now in Manchester & wishd my answer to be sent to him to forwarded, but I think it more direct to be sent thro your good offices by the packet for I am impatient to let the good Soul know that age has not with me extinguished all human feeling Bye the bye, I received with this letter a tour to Sicily & Malta of his writing of respectable size & equally respectable contents, indicating much f his natural gentleness and good feeling. Excepting indeed on one subject which carries him uprite of his native element, & it make him appear like a Pigeon in a passion to poor John Bull he is on all occasions unmerciful Now I really think Jonathan Calf ought to respect himself in his progenitor from whom he derives such a rich inheritance of good blood, good language good laws & above all to use his own phrase good Nations. It is ungracious to trumple on the poor old Gentlemen in the day of his on the poor old Gentleman in the day of his adversity, but one shall not begin a subject which has no end but rather speak of Dear Mrs. Booth & her pretty Chickens, As Macduff says. I have a kind of partial interest about the youngest which I should not indulge knowing how little these Blossoms are to be with & in such a case I should be sorrier than I ought to be. We are all quiet & grave here few parties none gay no wonder. Standing as we do on an Isthmus between Revolution & cholera, & without very kindly feelings to each other where Politics differ while matters are come to a crisis which makes a Neutrality impossible. The inclosed will be sent of course to the Packets. I shall be inconsolable if it does not arrive. I love all your children the “Like Jacob lendest of the youngest born”. Mrs. Booth knows that I love her & suspects me of loving you.

A denial would be unworthy of Anne Grant

Automotive Pioneer John Willys Writes on Willys Overland Company Letterhead

John N. Willys (1873 - 1935). American automotive pioneer. He got his start selling cars at his dealership in Indiana. The company sold the Overland brand, and when the Overland Company ran into production problems Willys acquired the company. Despite being rather new to the business, Willys proved to be an excellent operator. He changed the name of the company to the Willys-Overland Motor Company in 1912 and later acquired Edwards Motor Co of New York. When Willys acquired the Edwards Motors Co, it came with a license to manufacture the patented Knight “sleeve valve” engine. This engine design helped the company become the United States’ second leading car manufacturer. Willys is well known for his move to hire General Motors vice-president Walter Chrysler for, at the time, an astonishing salary of $1 million per year. Chrysler attempted to place a bid to takeover the company, but the move was rejected by stockholders. Due to this, Chrysler was forced to enter business by himself in 1921, and this gave birth to the Chrysler Corporation that still produces cars today. TLS. 1 Ppge. 7 1/4" x 10 1/2". January 27, 1926. A congratulatory letter sent to an employee for winning a sales derby. Willys talks of the employees leadership and discusses his intention to send him a “21-jewel” gold watch in addition to the prizes he won for the derby. Accompanied by another corporate letter notifying the recepient of his being awarded the prize. Excellent.
