Rev. J.W.C. Pennington letter - purchase of a slave...
Item # 696770
June 02, 1854
NEW YORK DAILY TIMES, June 2, 1854 Page 3 provides an exchange of letters between Rev. Dr. J. W. C. Pennington, Jacob Grove, and Stephen Pennington. The content relates to the purchase of a slave and is quite interesting.
Other reports include: "Southern Views on Foreign Emigration", "Alexander Hamilton on the Powers of the Government", "Arrival of the Asia", and more.
Complete in eight pages, even toning, slightly rough left spine, but overall nice.
Note: The Rev. Pennington, himself a former slave, was a highly respected pastor who presided over the marriage of Frederick Douglass and Anna Muray in 1838.
