Henry Ward Beecher clergyman, abolitionist, temperance leader, brother of Harriet Beecher Stowe. An interesting 4 pages ALS to Rev. Raymond Hoyt Seeley, October 14, 1870. Foreshadowing todays internet scams, Beecher explains a letter from some unidentified man to Seeley conveying a purported conversation or letter from Beecher reporting some dispute with Seeley. It is unclear what the fraud was seeking from Seeley but this wasnt Beechers first run in with the scam. You need not be much chagrinned at being his dupe. We have all served in that capacity. It is perhaps true misery loves company. The letter on all four sides of a folded bifolium page is written in strong dark writing and make for an attractive example with some humorous peak into the problems that followed notoriety in the 19.
