Description  

New Jersey abolitionist (1789–1839) who served as a leading critic of the Texas Revolution. LS, one page both sides, 7.75 x 4.5, November 5, 1836. Letter to an unidentified gentleman on behalf of the Anti-Slavery Office in Philadelphia. In part: “The friends of the Immediate Emancipation in Pennsylvania, have taken measures to hold a Convention, with the view of organizing a State Anti Slavery Society…We the undersigned…have been instructed to correspond with prominent individuals residing in other states, who are friendly to our cause, and to request their attendance.” Signed at the conclusion by Lundy and two other committee members. A notation at the conclusion by Lewis C. Gunn reads, “I sent this because it bears the signature of Benjamin Lundy—the indefatigable philanthropist who did more than any other man to prevent the annexation of Texas to these United States.” In fine condition, with two vertical folds, one through first letter of signature. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
