1 JOHN M. OXTON 1854 HANDWRITTEN LETTER BY A STAUNCH ANTI-CATHOLIC CALLING FOR THE TAR AND FEATHERING OF JESUIT PRIESTS AND COMPLAINING ABOUT NEW YORK POLITICS AND LAWYERS AS "A MISERABLE SET OF PIMPS AND TOMBS LAWYERS..."
Boston Massachusetts MA 1854 Fine Autograph
On offer is a superb ALS by JOHN M. OXTON dated Boston, 1854, 3pp, 4to. Excellent Maine and Vermont political content and much Anti-Catholic content: "...Burlington [Vermont]...is the grand centre of Romanism in Vermont. The Jesuits have a great influence there from Montreal..." Complains about NY politics & lawyers: "Miserable set of pimps and tombs lawyers. All they care about is to fill their pockets with money enough to well down a tub full of larger beer or a mug of rum. There is no more American feeling in these rightfully named Know Nothings of New York, than there is in the Pope of Rome... There has been a great of excitement east lately in relation to the tarring & feathering of a Catholic Jesuit Priest ... at Ellsworth ME ... He had interfered with their schools, their churches and their private business and the only way they clean him up was to apply the tar & feathers to the tricky Jesuits. This is the way they do things Down East..." Postmarked cover doesn't appear to have ever had a stamp. 
Price: 855.99 USD
