Description:

The Manuscript Division was one of several "departments" established in 1897 when the Library of Congress moved from the United States Capitol to a separate building nearby. Its staff of four assumed custody of a collection of twenty-five thousand manuscripts which had accumulated throughout the nineteenth century, chiefly through the purchase in 1867 of Peter Force's collection of Americana, the gift in 1882 of Joseph M. Toner's collection relating to George Washington and American medical history, and several small transfers from the Smithsonian Institution. In 1903, by an act of Congress and an executive order, the State Department began transferring historical papers, including several presidential collections, which had been acquired by the federal government.

 

Foremost among the division's holdings are the twenty-three groups of presidential papers, ranging in time from George Washington to Calvin Coolidge. In 1958 the division began a program to arrange, index, and microfilm all presidential papers in its custody. The program, completed in 1976, made available approximately two million manuscripts on some three thousand reels of microfilm. Accompanying item indexes were published for each collection.

The political dancing Jack: a holiday fift for sucking Whigs!! [graphic]

Title appears as it is written on the item.
Weitenkampf, p. 68.
A rare anti-Whig satire, giving a cynical view of the party's image-building and manipulation of candidate William Henry Harrison. Two influential Whigs, Senator Henry Clay (left) and Congressman Henry A. Wise, operate the strings of a "dancing-jack" toy figure of Harrison in military uniform. This and "The People's Line" (no. 1840-28) were issued anonymously. Their imprint gives two addresses used by publishers Huestis & Co. and Robert Elton during the 1840 campaign. Huestis and Elton issued two similar prints, "A Hard Road to Hoe" and "Uncle Sam's Pet Pups" (nos. 1840-26 and -29), probably designed by the same artist.

Uncle Sam’s pet pups! Or, Mother Bank’s last refuge [graphic].


Publication information: 1840.
1 print : woodcut and letterpress with watercolor, on wove paper ; 23.3 x 30.1 cm. (image)
Sold at Elton's, 18 Division-Street, New-York.

Weitenkampf, p. 68.
A crude woodcut satire showing Harrison luring "Mother Bank," Jackson, and Van Buren into a barrel of "Hard Cider." Jack Downing chases Jackson and Van Buren toward the barrel as Mother Bank crawls into it. While Jackson and Van Buren sought to destroy the Bank of the United States, one of Harrison's election campaign promises was to reestablish it, hence his providing "Mother Bank" a refuge in this scene.

“Buck” taking the “pot” [graphic].

Publication information: 1856.
1 print : lithograph on wove paper ; 25.7 x 40.8 cm. (image)
For sale by Nathaniel Currier at No. 2 Spruce St. N.Y.
Title appears as it is written on the item.
Gale, no. 803.
Weitenkampf, p. 118.
A pro-Buchanan satire, critical of the divisive or sectionalist appeal of the other two presidential contenders in the 1856 race. "Buck" or Buchanan (left) has evidently won a card game over Fremont (fallen at right) and Millard Fillmore (at right, blindfolded). Holding four aces and a large cauldron of "Union Soup" Buchanan vows, "I have fairly beaten them at their own game, and now that I have became possessed of this great "Reservoir" I will see that each and Every State of this great and glorious Union receives its proper Share of this sacred food." Fremont has tripped over a "Rock of Disunion" and fallen to the ground, still holding his large spoon "Abolition." He laments, "Oh, that I had been born a dog!--This is too much for mortal man to bear. Had I not stumbled over that "Blasted" rock I might have reached the fount of my ambition and with this good ladle 'Deal' to the North, and leave the South to 'Shuffle & Cut' off their mortal coil, by starvation, I shall have to 'Pass'!" Behind Fremont, Fillmore wanders blindfolded, holding a Know Nothing lantern (reflecting his party's nativist affiliation) and a spoon. He despairs, "I regret to say that 'Going It Blind' is a loosing Game, I did hope that I would be able to dip my spoon in the Pot without much difficulty.--My Hand is played out--'Buck' wins, and I am satisfied--Four aces can't be beat! and Buck holds them.".

A hard road to hoe! Or, the White House Turnpike, macadamized by the north benders [graphic]

Publication information: 1840.

Sold by Huestis & Co. 104 Nassau-St, N.Y.

Weitenkampf, p. 68.
A crude satire on the obstacles facing Van Buren's reelection effort in 1840. Weighed down by a large bundle labeled "Sub Treasury," Van Buren follows the lead of Andrew Jackson toward the White House. His way is blocked by barrels of "Hard Cider" and log cabins, symbolizing the popular appeal of Harrison's candidacy. In the right distance the Capitol is visible, and in the left distance Van Buren's home at Kinderhook. A mischievous youth stands behind Van Buren thumbing his nose.
No known restrictions on publication.

The telegraphic candidates [graphic]

Publication information: 1848.
1 print : lithograph on wove paper ; 31.1. x 44.5 cm. (image)
Signed in reverse: E.F.D. (E.F. Durang).
Sold by Turner & Fisher, N.Y. & Philada.
Title appears as it is written on the item.
Weitenkampf, p. 93.
In a race between the railroad and the telegraph the "telegraphic candidates," Lewis Cass and William O. Butler, are first to the White House. The artist ridicules Zachary Taylor for his hazy stance on major campaign issues and manages a jibe at the "dead letter" affair as well. (See "The Candidate of Many Parties," no. 1848-24.) Other presidential candidates Henry Clay, Martin Van Buren, and a third (possibly John P. Hale) are also in the race, traveling in a small boat, on a horse, and in a wheelbarrow respectively. Taylor and his running mate Millard Fillmore ride a locomotive "Non-Comittal. No Principles." along a track toward the White House (left). Taylor (seated on the engine): "Why Fill, my boy, we must be on the wrong track!" Fillmore (in the cab): "Yes, but if you hadn't dealt so much in the Mail line, it would have been all right!" The "Mail line" is a reference to the dead letter affair. Above them, Cass and Butler walk across telegraphic wires to enter a window of the White House. Cass, holding a sword (a memento of his 1812 military service), declares "I seek the people's eternal happiness!" Butler, holding onto Cass's coattail and thumbing his nose, yells back to Taylor "Zack, for old acquaintance sake I should like you to have been on the right side." Butler, like Taylor, served as a general in the Mexican War. Butler also taunts Van Buren, who ambles along on a scrawny horse at the far right, "O, Marty how are greens?" Van Buren (in a mock-Dutchman's accent): "O, mine got! Shonny! we pe a great deal mush pehind our time!" To the right of the train is a wheelbarrow from which protrude the legs and arms of another contestant, probably Liberty party candidate John P. Hale. A black man, representing abolitionism, lies on the ground beside the cart. Hale: "You d--d lazy niger get up and push along or we shall never get there!" Abolition: "De lor bless us all, me satisfy I go sleepey!" Henry Clay, in a sinking boat on the left, laments, "A pretty pass affairs have come to!" Samuel F. B. Morse had installed the first telegraphic line, linking Baltimore and Washington, in 1844. While still a novelty in 1848, the line may have a metaphorical significance in "The Telegraphic Candidates--&1as the symbolic path between Baltimore, where Cass and Butler were nominated, and Washington. The print must have appeared in the summer of 1848, between the May convention, which nominated Cass and Butler, and Hale's withdrawal from the race in August. Weitenkampf cites a version of the print in the New York Historical Society with the title "Popular Conveyances, or Telegraphic Dispatches for the White House.".

Sold for want of use [graphic]

Publication information: 1844.
1 print : lithograph on wove paper ; 30.1 x 43 cm (image)
Entered ... 1844 by James Baillie.
Lithography and print coloring on reasonable terms by James Baillie No. 33 Spruce Street New York.
Printed in the lower margin, and probably facetious, is: "Price 1 Shilling." The Library's impression was deposited for copyright on August 7, 1844.
Signed: H. Bucholzer.
Title appears as it is written on the item.
Weitenkampf, p. 81.
Bucholzer again uses animal characterizations to poke fun at the respective faults of prominent Democrats in the 1844 presidential race. In an interior, Whig nominee Henry Clay conducts a livestock auction, offering (left to right) an ass with the head of incumbent John Tyler, a goose with James K. Polk's head, and fox Martin Van Buren. The animals are guarded by Clay running-mate Theodore Frelinghuysen, who is armed with a whip. At left is a gallery of spectators. Clay stands at a podium raising a gavel in his right hand, saying: "Going--How much gentlemen for these animals? So much for the Lot--A fine fox, can play a variety of tricks--An animal of the goose species that never was heard of before--and a Texian Ass celebrated for the length of his ears. Stir them up Theodore, and let the gentlemen see. Going! Going!! Going!!!" In characterizing Polk an obscure species Clay alludes to the latter's emergence as (to use another animal metaphor) a dark horse nominee. Van Buren: "Might makes right." Polk: "Oh! goosey, goosey gander, where shall I wander?" Tyler: "Veto! Veto!! Veto!!!" (a reference to his repeated vetoes of Whig-sponsored bills to create a national bank). Frelinghuysen: "Stop your noise and stand still, or I'll give you a little more of this Tariff!" The Whig platform included support for a protectionist tariff, very popular in the northern states. A spectator, pointing at Tyler: "I dont like that Ass, he kicks." The idea of an ass kicking its master is probably a figurative reference to Tyler's betrayal of Whig interests during his administration.

An august convention [graphic]

Publication information: 1866.
1 print : lithograph on wove paper ; 25.3 x 41 cm. (image)
Title appears as it is written on the item.
Weitenkampf, p. 154.
The National Union Convention met in Philadelphia in August 1866 to create a political party that would back President Andrew Johnson's Reconstruction program and to elect a new Congress. Here, the convention is portrayed as a gathering of muzzled dogs, their collars inscribed with state names, who file toward a large doghouse, the "Wigwam." Except for the unwelcome arrival of Copperheads or Peace Democrats Fernando Wood and C. L. Vallandigham, the meeting was surprisingly harmonious even with the participation of representatives from both North and South. Here two dogs, "Massachusetts" and "South Carolina," side by side, lead the pack toward the Wigwam. Wood and Vallandigham are portrayed as cats, each held by the scruff of its neck by guard dogs Edgar Cowan and J. R. Doolittle. At bottom left stands a dog with a brush and a pail marked "N.Y. Times" tied to its tail. In the background "The Dead Dog of The White House," incumbent Andrew Johnson, lies in the road in front of the presidential mansion, which flies from its roof an American flag labeled "My Policy." "My Policy" was Johnson's campaign catchword. The Philadelphia movement ultimately failed, and anti-Johnson Republicans achieved more than a two-thirds majority in both houses of Congress.

Polk & Co. Going up Salt River [graphic].

http://loc.gov/pictures/resource/cph.3a12798/
Publication information: 1844.
1 print : lithograph with watercolor, on wove paper ; 31.9 x 44.3 cm (image)
Drawn by H. Bucholzer.
Entered ... 1844 by James Baillie.
Lithography & print coloring on reasonable terms by James Baillie No. 33 Spruce St. New York.

The Library's impression was deposited for copyright on July 10, 1844.
Weitenkampf, p. 80.
The artist foresees a Democratic defeat in the 1844 presidential election. Party figures Martin Van Buren, Thomas Hart Benton, vice-presidential candidate George M. Dallas, Andrew Jackson, and presidential nominee James K. Polk are in a dinghy towed by the "Steamer Ballot Box" up Salt River toward political defeat. The bow of the dinghy is adorned with the head of presidential incumbent John Tyler. On a staff on the steamer's stern is mounted a large cabbage, a symbol which during the 1840 election campaign represented Whig hopes of retiring Van Buren to his home at Kinderhook "to raise cabbages." Here Van Buren has the body of a fox and Polk that of a long-necked bird, perhaps a goose or a crane. Van Buren: "I never sailed so far up this river before. We must be near the head of navigation." Polk, standing on the stern of the boat: "We've got up so far that the water grows shallow. I think I could get out & wade now." Jackson exclaims: "By the eternal! Polk don't give up the "ship."".

James Fowler Simmons papers, 1771-1939

The papers of James Fowler Simmons (1795-1864) span the years 1771-1939 and consist primarily of correspondence and business papers, supplemented by legal papers, notes, drafts of reports, speeches, and printed matter. The collection is organized in Family Correspondence, General Correspondence, Financial Papers, Miscellany, and Printed Matter series.

 

The bulk of the material falls between the years 1840 and 1862 when Simmons’s political career reached the national level. His cotton manufacturing business in Rhode Island was still of major concern to him although it was managed by his eldest son, Walter C. Simmons, when the senator was in Washington. The correspondence and papers concerning both his public and business affairs during this period, together with some pertinent family letters, reflect the major aspects of his career. Specifically, they depict Simmons’s activities as a Whig in state and national politics, significant political and economic issues of the time, and the operations of a typical business concern in the mid-nineteenth century.

 

James Fowler Simmons’s time was much in demand. In pursuing two major careers he did not allow himself the luxury of extensive correspondence. One exception to this is a group of about 250 “husband-wife” letters which were removed from the collection by the donor and never returned. Another exception is Simmons’s letters to his son Walter Cook. These letters, usually brief, constitute the largest number of letters in this collection written by James Fowler Simmons to any one person. They span the years 1838-1861 and primarily concern business matters, although from time to time political events in Washington are discussed. The papers also contain the letters of Walter C. Simmons to his father. They include family and political subjects, especially political affairs in Rhode Island, as well as detailed accounts of the family business.

 

The bulk of the General Correspondence relates to political matters, state and national, and appears to be the most significant group of papers in the collection. When Simmons was a member of the Rhode Island General Assembly, 1828-1841, he received many letters from his constituents concerning contemporary political and economic issues, especially on the state and local level. Other significant correspondence of the late 1820s and 1830s are the letters of Nehemiah Rice Knight to Simmons. Knight was in the United States Senate from 1821 to 1841 and wrote regularly to Simmons about the political situation on the national front. His letters discuss such topics as the nomination of William Henry Harrison to the presidency, tariff matters, Texas annexation, James K. Polk, the Bank of the United States, slavery, and bounty laws.

The great American steeple chase for 1844 [graphic]

Weitenkampf, p. 72.
An imaginative and elaborate parody on the upcoming 1844 presidential campaign. The artist favors Whig nominee-apparent Henry Clay and is highly critical of incumbent John Tyler. The "chase" for the presidency leads to the White House (upper left) where Robert Tyler arouses his sleeping father saying, "Come wake up old Sampson, the Philistines are upon you!" President Tyler replies with a yawn: "Why Bobby my Pippin! I do believe I've been asleep! no matter I'm the People's favorite and belong to no Party. They will reelect me! If they don't I'll veto the whole concern d--n me!" His statement and the presence of a "Veto" paper on his desk allude to his liberal use of the presidential refusal to stymie Whig congressional efforts to establish a National Bank. In Robert Tyler's pocket is a scroll "Irish Repeal," referring to his support of that international movement. Approaching the steps of the White House, riding a beast which is half-horse and half-alligator (a mythical animal associated in popular lore with Clay's Kentucky), is Henry Clay. He exclaims triumphantly, "Hurrah! Old Kentuck will distance them all yet, and then the views of the lamented Harrisson will be carried out in full, and treachery will meet its reward." The sun rises behind him and an eagle with a streamer reading "E pluribus unum" flies ahead. Clay is followed by South Carolina Democrat John Calhoun, who remarks, "My old nullification Coota Turtle is rather a slow Coach! I am afraid he won't get out of this Clay Bank!" Taking the lower road (in keeping with his reputation for intrigue) is Martin Van Buren, riding a fox and exclaiming, "Confound Calhoun! He is right in my way! I'll take a short cut and though the path is crooked and rather dirty, I don't care so that I get in." Van Buren was derisively nicknamed "the Kinderhook fox." On the same path are two more presidential aspirants, James K. Polk and Richard M. Johnson. The first, sitting on a donkey and waving a club, yells, "I'am an Old Soldier, but I shall never get in unless I can turn this Donkeys head the right way." Johnson, who has fallen off his horse, exclaims, "My old amalgamation Nag has got the blind staggers! and I can stump it no longer!" "Amalgamation" was common parlance for the melding of races, more specifically referring here to Johnson's common-law marriage and offspring with a mulatto woman, Julia Chinn. Off to the right, Massachusetts senator Daniel Webster sits by an open fire, cooking a cauldron of "Chowder" (a staple of his native New England), vowing, "I shant leave my Chowder! unless my country calls me." Behind him on horseback is Gen. Winfield Scott who calls over to War of 1812 Commodore Charles Stewart, seated in a boat on a lake, "Odds bullets and bayonets! I don't care about being President but if my friends insist upon it I'll serve! I say Commodore, cant you or I get in by a Coup-de-main!" Stewart replies, "I think not General! so I'll haul my wind! I am better fitted to govern the helm of old Ironsides than the helm of State." In the lower right corner, a man (possibly Supreme Court Justice John McLean) falls head first down an incline, saying, "If I thought I had a drop of Democratic blood in my veins I would let it out.".

Terrible rout & total destruction of the Whig Party. In Salt River [graphic]


Publication information: 1852.
1 print : lithograph on wove paper ; 30.6 x 43.5 cm. (image)
Drawn by John L. Magee.
For sale at 124 Nassau St., New York.
Title appears as it is written on the item.
Weitenkampf, p. 109-110.
The 1852 Democratic victory under the standard of Franklin Pierce is foreseen as a debacle for the Whig party, led by Winfield Scott. Pierce (center) sits on his horse, holding aloft a banner bearing his and running mate William R. King's names. His troops rally around him--the party rank and file. Scott's forces are in chaos, routed into Salt River, the figurative stream of political disaster. Holding aloft a shredded banner, Scott (center) rides into the water with supporter William Seward holding tight to his horse's neck. Scott says, "Just as I expected, we relied too much on fuss and smoke, and have lost the battle, yet bravely hand in hand together, Seaward (Seward) we go, my Friend, my Brother." To the left, a uniformed man, either William R. King or Illinois Democrat Stephen A. Douglas, boots Whig incumbent president Millard Fillmore into the river, saying, "I like consistency & have ever been in favor of the improvement of Rivers and Harbours. Slide in!" Fillmore laments, "I dont know why they kick me. I'm sure I'm nobody!" In the lower left corner, the feet of abolitionist editor Horace Greeley protrude from the water. In the center, Lewis Cass fires a pistol at Daniel Webster, whose rump, labeled "Chowder" for his New England background, is just disappearing into the water. "Ah what glorious sport," cries Cass, taunting Webster about his diplomatic record, "how now Webster! backing down on guano. fishing for Cod! eh! feel dry! take mine warm. want any powder, give you some ball!" A man to the right of Cass prods at a floating body with a bayonet. Another man, further right, has just forced an unidentified Whig into the water, saying, "There's nothing like water to wash out Stains!" The comic characterizations and style of draftsmanship are unquestionably John L. Magee's, comparing closely with signed works such as "The Game Cock and the Goose" and "A Magnificent Offer to a Magnificent Officer" (nos. 1852-18 and 1852-27).

Weitenkampf, p. 126.
An optimistic Unionist boast, issued early in Lincoln's presidency, predicting the summary defeat of the Confederacy. Abraham Lincoln (at left) stands over the shield of the United States and a bald eagle, and fends off the sword of a bewhiskered secessionist. To the far left Lincoln's predecessor James Buchanan flees, saying, "I am glad I am out of the scrape!" He wears horns and has the words "Something rotten in Denmark" written on his clothing. Lincoln declares, "Just in time!" The secessionist wears a large-brimmed planter's hat, and has a pistol in his belt. He says, "Now or never" as his troops retreat into the background. Behind him federal troops under Union commander Winfield Scott approach. Scott says, "This is the way we serve all Traitors!" His lead soldier, holding up a noose, responds, "I am ready!" Behind are more Union troops, and a gallows. A domed building, possibly the Capitol at Washington, appears in the distance at left.

The people’s line—Take care of the locomotive [graphic]


Publication information: 1840.
1 print : woodcut and letterpress with watercolor, on wove paper ; 23.9 x 29.8 cm. (image)
Sold by Huestis & Co. and Robert Elton? at 104 Nassau, and 18 Division Streets, New-York.
Title appears as it is written on the item.
Weitenkampf, p. 68.
Incumbent President Martin Van Buren drives "Uncle Sam's Cab," a carriage pulled by a blindered horse, which wrecks on a pile of "Clay." The carriage founders in the path of a locomotive, really an assemblage of a "Hard Cider" barrel, a log cabin, and the head of Whig presidential candidate William Henry Harrison on wheels. Like "The Political Dancing Jack" (no. 1840-27), another crude but boldly designed woodcut, "The People's Line" was probably published by Huestis and Company and Robert Elton. Its imprint lists the two addresses used by these publishers on other prints during the 1840 campaign.

The telegraphic candidates [graphic].

Publication information: 1848.
1 print : lithograph on wove paper ; 31.1. x 44.5 cm. (image)
Signed in reverse: E.F.D. (E.F. Durang).
Sold by Turner & Fisher, N.Y. & Philada.
Title appears as it is written on the item.
Weitenkampf, p. 93.

 

In a race between the railroad and the telegraph the "telegraphic candidates," Lewis Cass and William O. Butler, are first to the White House. The artist ridicules Zachary Taylor for his hazy stance on major campaign issues and manages a jibe at the "dead letter" affair as well. (See "The Candidate of Many Parties," no. 1848-24.) Other presidential candidates Henry Clay, Martin Van Buren, and a third (possibly John P. Hale) are also in the race, traveling in a small boat, on a horse, and in a wheelbarrow respectively. Taylor and his running mate Millard Fillmore ride a locomotive "Non-Comittal. No Principles." along a track toward the White House (left). Taylor (seated on the engine): "Why Fill, my boy, we must be on the wrong track!" Fillmore (in the cab): "Yes, but if you hadn't dealt so much in the Mail line, it would have been all right!" The "Mail line" is a reference to the dead letter affair. Above them, Cass and Butler walk across telegraphic wires to enter a window of the White House. Cass, holding a sword (a memento of his 1812 military service), declares "I seek the people's eternal happiness!" Butler, holding onto Cass's coattail and thumbing his nose, yells back to Taylor "Zack, for old acquaintance sake I should like you to have been on the right side." Butler, like Taylor, served as a general in the Mexican War. Butler also taunts Van Buren, who ambles along on a scrawny horse at the far right, "O, Marty how are greens?" Van Buren (in a mock-Dutchman's accent): "O, mine got! Shonny! we pe a great deal mush pehind our time!" To the right of the train is a wheelbarrow from which protrude the legs and arms of another contestant, probably Liberty party candidate John P. Hale. A black man, representing abolitionism, lies on the ground beside the cart. Hale: "You d--d lazy niger get up and push along or we shall never get there!" Abolition: "De lor bless us all, me satisfy I go sleepey!" Henry Clay, in a sinking boat on the left, laments, "A pretty pass affairs have come to!" Samuel F. B. Morse had installed the first telegraphic line, linking Baltimore and Washington, in 1844. While still a novelty in 1848, the line may have a metaphorical significance in "The Telegraphic Candidates--&1as the symbolic path between Baltimore, where Cass and Butler were nominated, and Washington. The print must have appeared in the summer of 1848, between the May convention, which nominated Cass and Butler, and Hale's withdrawal from the race in August. Weitenkampf cites a version of the print in the New York Historical Society with the title "Popular Conveyances, or Telegraphic Dispatches for the White House.".

“As yet, I have found no difficulty in standing upon my own platform” [graphic].

Publication information: 1866.
1 print : lithograph on wove paper ; 15.7 x 21.1 cm. (image)
Entered according to Act of Congress June 8th 1866.
Title appears as it is written on the item.
Weitenkampf, p. 153.
A puzzling caricature, probably dealing with Reconstruction under Andrew Johnson's administration. The work is quite crudely drawn. An acrobat, with mustache and sideburns and wearing a jester's cap, holds in each hand a mask, one grinning and one frowning. His legs stretch from the head of Pennsylvania congressman Thaddeus Stevens, who holds a paper labeled "Committee of 15" and is seated on a black man, who crawls on all fours, to the head of an unidentified man (probably Johnson) who holds the U.S. Constitution. The latter's back is turned to the viewer and several geese, some alive and some dead, appear at his feet. Stevens, an abolitionist, was one of the most prominent members of the Joint Committee on Reconstruction, composed of fifteen members of Congress. The fool remarks, "As yet, I have found no difficulty in standing upon my own platform.".
