1 HARRIET BEECHER STOWE 1860 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT EXCERPT - "SORROW IS GODLIKE - SORROW IS WISE..." A PROFOUND, UNIQUE AND SCARCE RELIC OF THE CIVIL WAR ERA, THE ABOLITION MOVEMENT AND THE DEMISE OF SLAVERY IN AMERICA
London England 1860 Very Good+ English 
On offer is an original autograph manuscript quote, written, signed and dated London, 16 June 1860 by Harriet Elizabeth Beecher Stowe a mere year before the onset of the American Civil War. Beecher Stowe is revered as the author of 'Uncle Tom's Cabin or Life Among the Lowly' and by doing so created the final wave that swept slavery from America. A woman whom Abraham Lincoln was quoted as saying "so you were the little woman that started this great war." This is a unique 50 word excerpt, a gem of a quote full of true insight and wisdom, penned on one of her trips, in this case to London, to rally support for the North and inasmuch she almost single handedly turned Britain away from supporting the South by pointing out the fact that Britain had already become anti-slavery. In part: 'Sorrow is Godlike! - sorrow is wise and far seeing....' This is a remarkable relic of the Civil War era, the abolition movement, an important author and historical figure and hero in the fight for justice. VG+.
