1 LYDIA W. CULLEN, REVERENDS RAMSEY, DEWITT et al 1836 ORIGINAL HANDWRITTEN AUTOGRAPH ALBUM INCLUDING MANY NOTED DELAWARE RELIGIOUS AND POLITICAL FIGURES
GEORGETOWN DELAWARE DE 1836 Good English 
On offer is a super, 1836 handwritten autograph album of Lydia W. Cullen, daughter of Elisha Dickerson Cullen a noted American lawyer and politician from Georgetown Delaware. Elisha, the father, was born in 1799. Educated at Princeton College and admitted to the bar in 1821. Elected to congress in 1854 and died in Georgetown in 1862. His sons, Lydia's brothers, were also prominent politicians and lawyers. The album includes 27 handwritten pages, some blanks and a number of engravings and one page of beautiful work original art and flourishing. One section in mid-eastern style script transcribed in English for Lydia whose author signs it, "William Ramsey" who appears to be the Reverend William Ramsey who published a book the same year this journal was written called, "Journal of a missionary tour in India" about women in India and how they are treated. Included is a message from Reverend Abraham DeWitt from Lewes Delaware. Mr. DeWitt was one of the oldest Presbyterian ministers of the county as well as one of the oldest citizens of Cecil County. He was born in 1798, also attended Princeton (Theological Seminary) and was licensed to preach in 1831. On November 14, 1834 he became the pastor of Lewes, Cool Springs and Indian River churches in Delaware. An Anna DeWitt also signed the album. Research suggests Lydia died in "early womanhood" and the 1850 Delaware census shows her still living, being 25 years of age. She must have died shortly after the census was taken. The album measures about 6 ½" x 8 ½" and is worn and in fair condition. There is a good deal of foxing on the pages and a few of the pages in the beginning suffered water damage mildly at one time. Overall F+.
