CHARLESTON SOUTH CAROLINA 1800S COVER AND LETTER- RELIGIOUS CONTENT- TWO 1-CT BANKNOTES FANCY CANCEL

Cover roughly opened. However, nice pair of Franklin banknotes with fancy target postmarks are undamaged. Although letter is postmarked Charleston, it was written in Savannah. Letter is from Anna Young to Mrs. Guardeau thanking her for presiding in her place at a prayer meeting. "...you are so competent in the business line and still more in prayer for GOD's presence with us and blessings upon us. My absence from the board is a trial, but it is also a Providence and I cling to the holy Cowper's definition of this word which has been a special help to me.." "Providence is but the name of an effect whose case is "GOD". Interesting reading.

CAMBRIDGE MASSACHUSETTS TO CANANDAIGUA NEW YORK EARLY COVER. SCOTT#26 STAMP CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH. REV. DAGGETT

Clean stamp and cover. Nice item. No content. Addressed to Rev. O. E. Dagget for Mrs. Dagget.

The December number of the " National Preacher," contains a Sermon, entitled, "The time of the End uncertain," by Rev. O. E. Daggett, pastor of the South Congregational church, Hartford, Ct. The object of this discourse appears to be, to prove that we can never know with any certainty, the time of the Second Advent; and therefore, that no confidence can be placed in any of the evidence upon which the near approach of that event is predicated. It is singular that while a century ago, the whole Protestant church were endeavoring to acquire all the light possible upon the prophecies of Daniel and John, yet, now, the same church is equally anxious to throw darkness upon those prophecies.

EXTRACT FROM A LETTER Of Rev. O. E. DAGGETT, D.D

Canandaigua, N. Y., Jan. 3, 1863.

Mt Dear Sir :—That so young a State as Iowa has a Historical Society is noticeable, but the sooner such operations are begun, the better. I was much pleased with that of Wisconsin, where I was, at Madison, in May, 1862. Though only eight years old, it had already done, what could not so well be done later, for the State, besides having some things of interest in all similar collections.

I enclose you two specimens from my Colonial and Continental money, for your Historical Society. See the motto of the latter. Yours, sincerely, O. E. DAGGETT.
