PHILLIPS, WENDELL. Autograph Letter Signed, "W Phillips," to "Dear Sir," explaining that he would have to charge $50 to lecture in Lewiston [ME] to compensate for having to come down from Bangor. 2 1/2 pages, 12mo, written on a single folded sheet; faint scattered offsetting, horizontal folds. Np, nd
". . . I have just returned from a Lecture tour. "I do not see that I could come to Lewiston this winter. As the week I come to Bangor has all its Evenings engaged. It would hardly be worth while to come down for a single Lecture as it would make my charge ($50) fifty dollars." Phillips (1811-1884) was a lawyer and reformer, whose radical Abolitionism drove him at one point to encourage the North's secession, and who later argued for the fair treatment of Native Americans.
