Tribute of the Chamber of Commerce of the state of New-York to the memory of Anson Burlingame, late ambassador from China, March 3d, 1870. Eulogy

By Cowdin, Elliot C.

New York: John W. Amerman, Printer, 1870. 11p., slender hardcover, gilt title on front board; sun-fading along spine and part of front cover, interior very good. Gilt textblock edges. Commemorates the Harvard Law School graduate, abolitionist, and Massachusetts politician who had been appointed by Lincoln as minister to the Qing Empire. During his tenure Burlingame opposed imperialism and its designs on China, which so impressed the Qing court that when his tenure had expired, the Chinese government hired him to serve as its "envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary" to head a Chinese diplomatic mission to the US and Europe. As this tribute by Cowdin states, "It is one of the highest proofs of the keen sagacity and capacious heart of our friend, that he was able to understand and willing to appreciate both the people and the government of China, thus doing for them and for the world what no other foreigner had ever succeeded in accomplishing; and he early resolved that in due time he would make the true character of this ancient Empire known to the nations of the west." The city of Burlingame, California is named after him.

To the honourable Thomas White, Minister of the Interior [petition of dissatisfied Temperance Colonization Society scripholders]

Toronto, 1886. Two-page printed petition on a single folded sheet; 8.25x13.25 inches, horizontally fold-creased, with some splitting at the ends of the folds. Not found in OCLC as of February 2019. The Temperance Colonization Society, established in 1881, sought to establish an alcohol-free community on the prairie. The TCS obtained a large swath of land in Saskatchewan from the Canadian government, and sold scrip to prospective settlers who planned to farm it. The scrip could then be used to claim land in the settlement. Colonization was not as smooth as had been promised, however, and during this period the flow of settlers slowed to a trickle. The present document, a formal complaint by scripholders of the TCS, states that the original prospectuses and advertisements had been glowing, but "...a large number of the Scripholders of the said Temperance Colonization Society have become convinced that there has been gross mismanagement and irregularity in conducting the business of the said Society whereby great loss and injury have inured to the holders of the Society's scrip." The settlers had learned that the Society had no real legal authority to prevent the sale of liquor throughout the territory, that the Society was riven by lawsuits, and that the scrip they had purchased for reserving land could not be used as promised. The petition ends with three possible solutions to the crisis, including the possible closure of the Society. The TCS did finally dissolve in 1891, a year after the first railroad reached Saskatoon. The original settlement is known today as Nutana.
