Constitution, 1825 Manuscript, Title Page

Missing 13th Amendment, 1825 Manuscript

The special value of those who preserve and guard our invaluable heritage in our libraries is remarkably demonstrated here.

From the State of Maine

State of Maine Archivist, Jeffrey Brown, acted with scholarly sincerity in locating the requested, rare document and making copies. Mailed to me at a nominal cost were hard copy, certified as a copy of the original, plus jpeg scan copies for my computer. Those are the ones shown above, converted to gif.

Archivist Patty Lincoln was responsible for cataloging the document. Someone gave the book to the library, saying they had found it in their grandfather’s possessions. Patty had an authority determine the authenticity and value of the book, then placed it in a secure place. So, when Jeff asked about the book, Patty was familiar with it.
