No Binding. Very Good. octavo, 3 pages, on school stationery, with original mailing envelope, very good, clean and legible condition. Case, a Phillips Academy student, lets loose some racist and classist remarks to his father: ". Yesterday Abbott in my class took Brown another senior in my class and myself over to Lowell . a very busy and also beautiful city. About six o'clock the factories closed and then the streets were filled with the operatives. As a general thing they are a poor miserable looking set, worthy of all the pity and attention the New Englander have so zealously bestowed on the far more comfortable niggers . Our lessons are very easy this term and none of the boys study very hard ." After graduating that year from Andover, Albertson Case went on to Yale, Harvard and Columbia Law School, eventually practicing law in the town where his father had long been an attorney for the wealthy and a prominent Democratic politician. Both father and son held many state, county and local offices - despite accusations that the father had supported Southern secession. Neither father nor son served in the Union Army during the war. The young Case's racist remarks in which he asserted that New Englanders were favoring Blacks over poor whites was typical of the prejudice of New York Democrats. This was ironic because Phillips Andover had been an antebellum hotbed of anti-slavery abolitionists and even a "station" for fugitive slaves on the Underground Railroad. (Inventory #: 030041)
