    Correspondence to Francis Ellingwood Abbot, radical theologian and editor of The Index. Francis Ellingwood Abbot (1836-1903) was a philosopher and theologian, best known as the founder of the Free Religious Association (1867), editor of the weekly publication The Index (1870-1880), and President of the National Liberal League (1876). After studying the works of Charles Darwin, Abbot dedicated his life to reconciling the perceived difference between scientific study and religious revelation. His Free Religious Association rejected all religious authority, and was considered extremely radical for the time.rnHis criticisms of Protestantism and Roman Catholicism made Abbot a figure of national prominence, especially through the weekly publication of The Index. Abbot»s radicalism made it difficult for him to find a steady career, although he did eventually find himself teaching at Harvard University--an appointment which was met with much backlash in the academic world.rnAbbot spent his entire adult life championing his unique theory of «Free Religion,» which attracted considerable attention and debate on both sides of the Atlantic. However, personal tragedy struck in 1892, when his wife Katie died suddenly. After spending the last decade of his life studying and writing, Abbot ended his own life at his wife»s grave site on October 23, 1903.rnrnAs evidenced by the covers contained in this lot, Abbot carried on correspondence with many of the most prominent scientists, philosophers, and writers of his day. These include:rnCharles Darwin (1809-1882), famed British scientist who helped to establish the modern understanding of evolution.rnCharles Voysey (1828-1912), British theist who was condemned by the Privy Council for heterodoxy.rnFrederick Maxse (1833-1900), British Royal Naval officer and radical political activist.rnGeorge Holyoake (1817-1906), British newspaper editor who coined the term «secularism» in 1851.rnAnnie Besant (1847-1933), British activist who was prominent in the National Secular Society.rnThomas Butler Gunn (1826-1904), British illustrator and newspaper correspondent during the Civil War.rnMax Müller (1823-1900), German philologist and one of the founders of comparative religion.rnAlan Greenwell (1824-1914), brother of British poet Dora Greenwell.rnrnEight of these covers are accompanied by photocopies of their original contents from the Harvard University Archives. The letters to Mr. Abbot, notably that from Charles Darwin (on his headed notepaper and revealing some of his own beliefs)) demonstrate the considerable attention he attracted from his contemporaries, and shed light on his radical religious beliefs. rnAll 10 covers are addressed to Abbot while he was editor of The Index; eight while the publication was based in Boston, and two to Toledo, Ohio. Based on the photocopied letters, the envelopes (including Darwin) appear to be addressed in the hand of the senders. A variety of frankings are represented, including adhesive stamps and postal stationery. Condition is generally F-VF; all 10 covers are pictured on the facing page.

    James Monroe (1785-1831; 5th President 1817-25) bold "James Monroe" free frank on folded cover addressed in his hand to Dr. James W. Wallace, Warrenton, Virginia, additional "Aldie, Va." manuscript and matching "Free", vert. file fold through "a" of "James", Very Fine.rnMonroe, one of the most versatile of the founding fathers, served in the Revolutionary War and was wounded at the Battle of Trenton. He served in the Continental Congress and one of Virginia's first Senators (1790-94). Washington appointed him Minister to France but was recalled for privately opposing Jay's Treaty with England. He was then Governor of Virginia (1799-1802) until Jefferson asked him to negotiate the Louisiana Purchase with France. He was then appointed by Jefferson as the Minister to Great Britain followed by a stint as Madison's Secretary of State and Secretary of War. Monroe was elected President in 1816 and re-elected unopposed in 1820, Monroe presided over the "Era of Good Feelings", bought Florida from Spain, and signed the Missouri Compromise but the highlight of his administration was the Monroe Doctrine, which warned Europe not to interfere in the Western Hemisphere, and is still invoked in the present day. rnThe addressee, Dr James Wallace, was born in 1769 and educated in Edinburgh, Scotland. He was a surgeon in the 2nd Virginia regiment and the private physician of Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe.

Newton Pittsfield, Mass., cover silked on interior, Extremely Fine.rnSon of 2nd President John Adams, he served as the Minister to the Netherlands, Prussia, Russia and Great Britain, negotiated the Treaty of Ghent which ended the War of 1812and served as Pres Monroe's Secretary of State during his entire term in office. Historians generally concur that he was one of the greatest diplomats and secretaries of state in American history. In 1824, he ran against Andrew Jackson and Henry Clay, and though Jackson received more votes, the election was thrown into the House of Representatives. There, House Speaker Clay swayed members to vote for Adams, who then appointed Clay Secretary of State. Following his defeat in 1828, he was elected to the House of Representatives from Massachusetts, where he served from 1831 until his death.rnThe addressee, Edward Newton, was a businessman born in Nova Scotia who worked in the Far East who, upon returning to Pittsfield, became active in the local religious scene. rn
