A rare collection of American Civil War period letters written by American business magnate J.K. Smythe about trade between Europe and America during the early years of the war. Quarto bound in two volumes in half cloth over pebbled boards by Auguste Bellance of Paris, with marbled endpapers and a paper title-plate with Smythe’s signature affixed to the front panel of the first volume. Written by Smythe in Paris between 1858 and 1863, the collection contains several early letters relating to the sale and purchase of land in New York, including proposals by Smythe to sell his land in Harlem bordering Central Park and to purchase properties on Broadway and in Manheim in addendum to letter regarding house being built for Smythe in New York by architect Calvert Vaux, who had just designed Central Park with Frederick Law Olmsted. Beginning in 1861, the letters contain several comments regarding the excitement in the State of the Union at the outbreak of the American Civil War, including a May 1961 letter that reads in part: “Of course you are receiving reports of intense excitement in all the northern states regarding the war they are inaugurating to quell rebellion – The people who arrived on the last steamer say that the excitement and patriotism of the people can hardly be described. The Americans are also very enthusiastic here.” In very good condition. A fascinating collection.

On The Altar Of Freedom: A Black Soldier’s Civil War Letters From The
The suspension of mail service to the south caused considerable hardship to many families, divided by the partition of the country. Although the purpose of stopping mail service to the South was to isolate and bypass the Confederate states, some mail still managed to cross the border on what were known as “flag of truce” ships. When the Union began blockading southern ports, letters were often carried across the border by blockaders or routed through foreign ports. While these methods meant letters often took a long time to reach their intended recipient on the other side of the border, they still allowed friends and families to stay connected as a divided country raged around them.
Soldiers in the Civil War also had trouble sending and receiving mail from their loved ones at home. While it was relatively easy for an army post to find soldiers after they had been in camp for several weeks, during periods of intense action both armies were in constant motion. This constant shifting of location made mail delivery a very real challenge. But families and friends continued to write because the letters they exchanged were their only connection with their men at the front, and soldiers who longed for any reminder of home clamored for more mail. Newton Scott, a soldier in the Iowa Volunteers, epitomized the soldier’s need to hear from family and friends in a letter to his childhood companion Hannah Cone: “Miss Han, I will tell you that me and Will have written about a dozen letters. since we left home and have only received two or three letters. This is the second I’ve written to you and I’ve had no reply.” Time passed slowly between battles for the soldiers who needed the occasional message from home to know they weren’t forgotten.
Scott and Hannah Cone exchanged letters during Scott’s four years of fighting in Arkansas, he providing her with first-hand accounts of the war and she providing him with the most important images of home. Their correspondence, filled half with somber war stories and half with fond memories and news from home, illustrates the peculiar state of Americans during the Civil War. In one letter dated January 19, 1864, Scott described the hanging of a rebel spy in one paragraph and moved on to reminiscing about the Christmas season in the next. After commenting on Hannah’s merry vacation, he said of the boys at camp that “there is no roast turkey for dinner and no visitors to see us, but we stay in our camps thinking of home and
