Description
 
A grouping of materials related to Whittier.  The first is a cabinet card with Whittier's signature at base.  The second is a 4 3/4" x 7 1/2" page from an autograph album with what seems to be an original verse penned and signed by John G. Whittier, Amesbury 1878.  The reverse has an drawing by Alice C. Boynton, Boston MA. The third is a 4" x 4 1/2" piece of shingle with a pen and ink somewhat naive drawing of "The Captain's Well".  It is captioned "And I knew in that vision beyong the sea, The very place where my well must be". Penned on the reverse "Picture of the 'Captian's Well' at Amesbury on a shingle from John G. Whittier's House in Amesbury". This is being sold only as an illustration, there has been no attempt to confirm that the wood shingle is from Whittier's home. The final item is a snippet from a letter penned by Whittier..
