Letter Archive, Asst. Surgeon James Rogers, H.M.S. Revenge Included are 5 19th century surgical instruments; 2 by M. Wocher, 3 by Luer, entire view

Description: Very interesting letter grouping of Asst Surgeon James Rogers, H.M.S.
Revenge, along with MSS formulas for various cures mostly in Latin, a poem "The Tear"
written by Dr. Rogers aboard the Revenge in 1838, and 5 small surgical tools belonging
to Dr. Rogers. This is most interesting archive demanding further research.

Five letters to Dr. James Rogers to/from John Rogers, his father. All have stampless
envelopes with interesting postmarks including to Rogers aboard H.M.S Revenge, Cape
of Good Hope or Elsewhere. Another to Rogers on the Revenge in Portsmouth, another
to Rogers aboard the H.M.S. Isis. John Rogers spares no words in detailing the family
happenings throughout the period of 1837 to 1847, the date of the last letter. Two letters
are addressed to Dr. James Rogers, Oakland County, State of Michigan Letters are all
readable, although one is tearing at all seams and another has cross-writing on the
entire surface. (twice the content, but harder to read).

In 1976, a letter was written to the Minister of Defense, London, England to enquire
about Asst Surgeon James Rogers service in the British Navy. The reply is included in
the archive stating that James Rogers did indeed serve as Asst. Surgeon on the H.M.S
Revenge in 1831, and additionally detailed the service history of the H.M.S Revenge
from 1805 to 1849. Further info on the H.M.S. Revenge can be found
at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Revenge_(1805)

Condition: All items are readable with legible handwriting. Most have some minor
condition issues not affecting the content. One letter has severe seam separation but
remains legible. Surgical tools are intact. Overall, well-worn but of acceptable condition
for the researcher, collector, or family archivist.

Patent or Salesman’s Cased Model,
Sled with Brake & Documents
Date/Period: 1870s - SOLD


Patent or Salesman’s Cased Model, Sled with Brake & Documents, entire view

Measurement: Case: 17.75 x 7.5 x 9.5", sled: 17” x 7.75 x 6 3/8”

Material: Oak, walnut, steel, and small rubber drums, braking mechanism may not
be complete, please call David to discuss.

Condition: Very good

Additional Information: An expertly constructed snow sled of mortise and tenon
joinery. The sled is contained within a dovetail joined lidded box made of poplar.
Within the case are a letter written on Carr, Crawley & Devlin, a partnership formed in
1871 and directed by Thomas Devlin a manufacturer and, capitalist.
The company was in the hardware trade and other businesses. The brief document
speaks to castings, lead time and credit. Perhaps when the sled or braking system was
manufactured, if it went into production, the maker contracted with Carr, Crawley &
Devlin to cast parts for braking system.

A memorandum dated 1878 from Towner, Landstreet & Co. having a footer for
“Goodyear’s Rubber House” discusses an order…the sled brake system utilizes two
small rubber pieces. Of course, this is solely conjecture. Also included are a postcard
and envelope.

(Three hollow-cut profiles are stamped KING; William King; two by anonymous hand)
Nearly all material relates to Justice Abiel Haywood of Concord, Massachusetts
Haywood Archive: Oversized shoe box of documents, legal papers, related letters, and miscellaneous ephemera, mostly dating from the very late 18th C. to the 3rd Qtr. of the 19th C., with the vast bulk being early 1800's. Most, or all, of the contents seems to be associated with Justice Haywood; he presided over all kinds of legal disputes. A quick survey of the contents seems to be heavy on the financial disputes, wills, and land agreements, with outliers to include an 1828 blank voting tally sheet for choosing Representatives to the House, A complaint for forced intimacy, congressional record extract, etc. Lots of interesting items, appears to be 200+ (we didn't count them), interesting names, content, an interesting variety of old paper. Some of the towns (from memory only) Concord, Boston, Bridgewater, Chelmsford, Acton, etc...and many, many 1800's New England names to research! Some of these items seem quite worthy of framing, and worthy of further study!
