    COURANT-OFFICE, HARTFORD, APRIL 1, 1817. THE LAST RESOURCE OF DEMOCRACY. FROM THE AMERICAN MERCURY OF APRIL 1, 1817. "A MAMMOTH TAX!" by [Connecticut]

    Hartford: Courant, 1817. Broadside, oblong 10" x 8-1/2". Light uniform toning, old folds. Irregular edges. Good+. A rare survival of Connecticut's intense, early 19th century political conflicts. The 'American Mercury', a Hartford Democratic periodical during 1784-1833, reported "that it will be necessary, this spring to lay a State tax of ten cents on the dollar, to clear the State from debt. Whether the platform folks really have it in contemplation to lay this enormous tax at once, or by piece-meal, we cannot say..." Andrew Kingsbury, Connecticut's Treasurer since 1794, refutes the dastardly claim: "There are ample funds in the Treasury to meet any outstanding claims against the State." The broadside closes, "After so complete a refutation of the statement in the Mercury, it is hoped that no further cautions will be necessary against giving credit to Democratic Electioneering Statements."

    8" x 9.75", unlined sheet folded to 4.8" x 8". [4] pp. Completely in ink manuscript. Neat old folds. Page [4] is an illustration, neatly hand-drawn, of Yale's proposed door and lock mechanism with notations concerning materials, thickness, and design. Near Fine. The Letter reads: "DEAR SIR - SINCE I WAS IN YOUR BANK THE OTHER DAY I HAVE THOUGHT OF YOUR OLD FASHIONED VAULT ARRANGEMENTS & FASTENINGS AND I WANT TO SAY TO YOU THAT I THINK I CAN MAKE IT PLAIN TO YOU THAT YOU OUGHT TO HAVE SOMETHING BETTER. I DON'T WANT YOU TO ATTRIBUTE IT TO DISINTERESTED NOTIONS ENTIRELY - IT IS MY BUSINESS TO FIND WHERE I CAN BE OF USE AND MAKE A LITTLE PROFIT MYSELF, AND I MUST SAY YOU ARE A GOOD SUBJECT. "I AM PUTTING SAFES AND DOORS INTO MANY COUNTRY BANKS WHEN THEIR FASTENINGS ARE ALREADY MUCH SUPERIOR TO YOURS - YOURS ARE VERY MUCH BEHIND THE AGE: WHICH MEANS MORE THAN SAYING YOUR COAT IS OUT OF FASHION [underlined in original]. I EXPLAINED ONE WEAKNESS TO YOU WHICH I DO NOT WISH YOU TO MAKE USE OF EXCEPT IN GUARDING YOURSELF AGAINST AS IT IS SOMETHING ENTIRELY OVERLOOKED BY MY COMPETITORS AND IT IS MY [I HOPE PARDONABLE] INTENTION TO LET THEM REMAIN IN IGNORANCE - AS I LOOK AT IT YOU WANT A SET OF DOORS TO YOUR VAULT WITH A MODERN LOCK AND A SMALL BURGLAR PROOF CHEST INSIDE YOUR PRESENT SAFE LARGE ENOUGH ONLY TO HOLD YOUR 'CONVERTIBLES' - "THE NEW DOORS AND LOCK TO THE VAULT WOULD HAVE A GOOD MORAL EFFECT WHICH I NEED NOT ENLARGE UPON THE IMPORTANCE OF TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WHO LIVE IN THE SAME BUILDING - YOU HAVE UNDOUBTEDLY CONSIDERED HOW EXPOSED YOU ARE BY HAVING SUCH AN EASILY DEMOLISHED STRUCTURE TEMPTING THE PROWLING FRATERNITY WHO ALWAYS SEE EXACTLY WHAT THEY HAVE GOT TO DO TO GET AT THE MONEY. "I WILL DELIVER ON THE CARS IN NEW YORK A SET OF DOORS CONSTRUCTED IN THE MANNER INDICATED IN THE ACCOMPANYING SKETCH WITH A DOUBLE DIAL LOCK/ BRONZE/ FOR $675.00 AND SUPERINTEND PUTTING THIS UP. "I WILL MAKE YOU A FRANKLINITE CHEST UNDER MY THREE PATENTS SAY 24 IN HIGH 18 IN WIDE AND 16 IN DEEP 2 IN THICK WITH A DOUBLE DIAL LOCK ON FOR $687.00 OR BOTH FOR SAY $1350. I CAN HONESTLY SAY MY WORK HAS ALL THE GOOD POINTS FOUND IN THE BEST MAKERS AND SEVERAL THAT ARE ENTIRELY NEW TO THE WORLD AND AS YET UNAPPRECIATED BY MY COMPETITORS. I HAVE SPENT SIXTEEN YEARS IN THIS LINE AND LED THE WAY IN ALL THE IMPORTANT IMPROVEMENTS IN THAT TIME. I 'BLOW MY OWN HORN' KNOWING HOW MUCH STRAIN IT WILL BEAR WITHOUT INJURY ALTHOUGH IT MAY NOT BE VERY MUSICAL. "HOPING TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON ON THIS SUBJECT I AM VERY RESPECTFULLY YOURS, LINUS YALE, JR." Linus Yale, Jr. [1821-1868] invented the famous Yale Cylinder Lock, based on ancient Egyptian mechanisms and perfected by Yale, a distant relative of Elihu Yale, the founder of Yale University. The Yale lock, "the world's favorite lock," is touted on the Yale Lock website as "one of the oldest international brands in the world and probably the best-known name in the locking industry." Yale joined his father's business, the Yale Lock Shop in Newport, New York, in 1850. He perfected and patented his father's pin tumbler cylinder lock in 1861. By 1862 he introduced the Monitor Bank Lock, which transformed banks from key locks to dial or combination locks. He fine-tuned the cylinder lock with a second patent in 1865. He and Henry Robinson Towne formed the Yale Lock Manufacturing Company in Stamford, Connecticut. Materials and manufacturing practices have changed over the years, but the principle of Yale's design is mostly unchanged ["Our beginning - the history of Yale," accessed at the web site of Yale Lock]. Jerome Wells [1813-1880 ] was the first president of the Chicopee Savings Bank, organized in 1854, and served as such until 1874. [Everts: HISTORY OF THE CONNECTICUT VALLEY IN MASSACHUSETTS... VOL. II. Philadelphia: 1879. Pages 965, 976-980.].

    COBBETT'S PAPER AGAINST GOLD: CONTAINING THE HISTORY AND MYSTERY OF THE BANK OF ENGLAND, THE FUNDS, THE DEBT, THE SINKING FUND, THE BANK STOPPAGE, THE LOWERING AND THE RAISING OF THE VALUE OF PAPER-MONEY; AND SHEWING, THAT TAXATION, PAUPERISM, POVERTY, MISERY AND CRIMES HAVE ALL INCREASED, AND EVER MUST INCREASE, WITH A FUNDING SYSTEM by Cobbett, William

    [London: Printed by W. Molineux, Published by W. Cobbett, 1817. viii, [2]-470, [1 blank] pp. Printed in two columns per page, with each column counted as a page [as issued]. Bound in original paper-covered boards. Rather crudely rebacked with waste paper, else Very Good with light foxing. Cobbett's thesis is that "The Paper-Money System has mainly contributed towards our present miseries...In all countries, where a Paper-Money, that is to say, a paper which could not, at any moment, be converted into Gold and Silver, the consequence, first or last, always been great and general misery." To prove his point, Cobbett inquires "into the origin of money, how it acts upon the affairs of men, how prices depend upon its quantity, and how money itself is changed in its quantity and value." He then discusses the origin of the Bank and its Paper, "from their fatal birth." Much the same argument raged in the United States between Hamiltonians, who wished to expand credit extensions, and Jeffersonians, who were deeply suspicious of paper currency. This book comprises 32 letters originally written between 1810 and 1815, and originally published in Cobbett's Political Register. This is their first collection and separate publication.

    FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MONEY VS. BANK CURRENCY. LETTER FROM GEN. WM. BRINDLE, OF MUNCY, PA. TO THE HON. WM. H. WITTE by Brindle, William

    Philadelphia: Published by Samuel P. Town, 1874. Original printed wrappers with wrapper title, as issued. 8pp. Stitched. Light wear, Very Good. Brindle was a Democrat who had served with Franklin Pierce in the Mexican War. President Pierce appointed him Indian Land Agent in the Kansas Territory, at Lecompton. He resigned when Abraham Lincoln was elected President. A critic of Lincoln's war policies, Brindle was arrested at Lecompton in July 1862 and briefly detained. After his release, he returned home to Muncy, from which several years later he penned this critique of Witte's monetary proposals. Witte had been a Pennsylvania Congressman. Brindle supports placing U.S. Treasury Notes on a par with specie payments, and denies that payment of bondholders with such notes would constitute a repudiation of the federal debt. He emphasizes, in opposition to Witte, "JEFFERSON, MADISON AND CALHOUN IN FAVOR OF UNITED STATES TREASURY NOTES AND IN OPPOSITION TO BANKS OF ISSUE." This position of the Democratic Party, opposing a "Monied Tyranny" of Banks, has been Democratic dogma since its inception. OCLC 191278885 [1- AAS] as of November 2017.

    An Appeal to the Public on the Conduct of the Banks in the City of New-York.; [Since the Suspension of Specie Payments] by A CITIZEN OF NEW-YORK [BRONSON, Isaac]

    New York: New-York Courier, 1815. First. pamphlet. 21 pages, printed with text in double columns. Original pamphlet, sewn (dampstain at upper corner, and rough at edges but well inside the ample margins; some pages still un-opened). New York: At the Office of the New-York Courier, 1815. First edition. A very good copy of this exceedingly scarce pamphlet. OCLC lists only 13 copies, including those at Columbia, Cornell, Yale, Harvard, and the New York Historical Society. Attributed to Isaac Bronson by F. Redlich in "The Molding of American Banking," 1868, volume 1, page 308. "Isaac Bronson was a highly successful financier of the Jacksonian era who was also one of the period's most original and influential banking theorists. Bronson accumulated his very considerable fortune in New York primarily by judicious personal money-lending operations on long-term bonds and mortgages at a cautious 7 per cent annual return, supplemented by successful ventures in land speculation. In addition to wealth, he had by the 1830's acquired a weighty reputation for sober financial conservatism and was regarded as an authoritative exponent of sound banking principles. Prominent in the financial community, he had long thrown his weight as a sound banking theorist against the "wild-cat" practices of the then rampant state banks." --Venit, A. (1945).

    New York: Anson D.F. Randolph, 1862. Original printed wrappers, stitched. 53, [1 blank] pp. Very Good.

But he lost everything during the Panic of 1857. During the Civil War years, when he wrote this pamphlet, he was forced to depend on the kindness of relatives for his support. DAB's sketch of Lord's life notes that this pamphlet attracted the attention of the Lincoln Administration; William Seward consulted with him on national fiscal policy. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 42024.

This Party sought to unite farmers and other advocates of cheap money with the industrial laboring class, in opposition to the "national bank monopoly," "railroad monopolies," "telegraph monopolies," "land monopolies," and "the concentration of vast fortunes in the hands of a few men, who now exercise dangerous influence over our free institutions and threaten the liberties of the people." Seeking to unite blacks and whites on the basis of their similar economic condition, the Party blamed Republicans and Democrats for deliberately stoking the fires of racial hatred by "appeals to sectional and race prejudice, which should not be tolerated any longer among our people."
