VERY RARE HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT ARCHIVE OF SEVEN (7) FRAGMENTS FROM THE HAND OF LEVI BARTLETT, SON OF JOSIAH BARTLETT, SIGNER OF THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE0JT157
This is a small archive of original handwritten fragments from the pen of Levi Bartlett. Late 1700, early 1800 - 7 pieces of paper in Levi Bartlett (1763-1828) handwriting. Levi was the son of Josiah Bartlett, best known as a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Not easy to read but still legible, here are some excerpts: "Ord. 3. Performance of Your Duties...our duties arise from our relations 1. to the Diety, 2. Ourselves..." "Vertigo by too much nerves, Dimness of Sight want of nerve, Double Vision too much nerve, ..." "a. Our duties are 1. to assist the purposes of the Diety in evolving our and others mental powers.." Very interesting and certainly worthy of further research. Includes an historical narrative and short biography of Levi Bartlett, as well as photocopies of various letters or decrees in Levi’s hand. Though unsigned it is evident from the addtional photocopied material this is indeed from Levi. Fragile, but still very presentable. Very rare.
