1 Emerson, Ralph Waldo et al. Letter to President Martin Van Buren on the Cherokee Indians, published in the Mechanic and Farmer. Thursday May 24, 1838
Bangor, ME Mechanic and Farmer, Publisher 1838 no Disbound Fair 
Large format newspaper, 4 pages. 21 by 15 inches wide. A single issue of this newspaper, featuring a letter from Ralph Waldo Emerson to President Martin Van Buren regarding the Cherokee Indians. Emerson argued against the removal of the Cherokee Indians from their land, citing moral reasons as well as calling the 1835 treaty which was used to remove the Cherokees, a 'sham treaty.' As well as citing popular protests against the removal, Emerson makes an effort to portray the Cherokees as a civilization worthy of respect, countering the then popular notion of Native Americans as inferior. This newspaper cites the letter having been previously published in an issue of the Yeoman's Gazette, with the letter first written on April 23rd of that year. FAIR condition. Newspaper folded in quarters, with heavy fold creases present. Currently mis-folded, with the Emerson essay on the exterior and the front page on the inside. Newspaper torn almost the entire length of the left margin/folding edge, still holding on with about 4 inches at the bottom. General moderate to heavy uneven browning, with Minor foxing and a few small tears. Left edge a bit rough along the torn portion.
