Correspondence with illustrations documenting travel in Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee during the winter of 1873 1874. 21 pages, 121 pages, 10 manuscript poems (43 pp., illustrated), and 58 small watercolors, including 10 le tters and 5 poems (61 pp.) on Palatka, Jacksonville, and other parts of northeastern Florida. Illustrated correspondence of Abraham Paul Leech detailing his travel and residence through the South with his eldest son and namesake Abraham Duryea Leech. The letters are written to his wife and younger son John. Leech took his son to Florida for his health in an attempt to avoid the northern winter. Sadly his son died soon after their return North. The letters and watercolor illustrations were clearly mean t to keep up the spirits of his younger son and his wife while he was away. Leech and his son traveled to Palatka, Green Cove Springs, Mellonville, and Jacksonville in Florida, Savannah, Macon, and Atlanta, in Georgia, and then Knovillee, Tennessee before returning to Long Island. Although many of the letters are picturesque, often
30 accompanied by charming illustrations, the content and tone of several let ters reflects the racism of the times, as virulent among many northerner visitors as among southern whites. Some letters and il lustrations are not appropriate for young viewers or students (and are designated as such). Abraham P. Leech is remembered as an early friend and correspondent of Walt Whitman. Leech was a bookkeeper and member of the P resbyterian Church who lived in Jamaica, Long Island. He was, from a young age, an avid draught sman, and both he and his brother Benjamin wrote poetry, some of which was published locally. In the 1840s Leech prepared an am ateur newspaper called the Jamaica Journal & Reporter, which contained an assortment of notices and observations, including his poetry and humorous illustrations. Leech s style of drawing was nave and it remained so throughout his life. The best are visually striking. Text from Michael Brown R a re Books, List Number 117, 2012.
