5 Waterston, R.C. Robert Cassie. Autograph Letter, Signed.

Dated Boston, 71 Chester Square, Jany 31, 1885. To Mr. (Samuel Austin) Allibone. Waterston had sent Allibone a copy of his "Memoir of George Barrell Emerson (1884), which Allibone had acknowledged and praised. Waterston here writes more about Emerson's virtues. He brings up the death of Allibone's sister, Susan, and praises her. He writes about the recent tragic death of Mary Apthorp Quincy Gould, daughter of the former president of Harvard, Josiah Quincy, grand-daughter of the former president of the United States, John Quincy Adams, and wife of the Harvard trained astronomer, Benjamin Apthorp Gould. He sends (not present here) a separate printing of the dedication from Gould's recent book, "Cordoba Zone Catalogue", honoring the deceased Mrs. Gould. From the letter: "For thirteen years she was with her husband in South America -- sharing all the studies and labors -- connected with that great book -- searching the southern heavens & recording all the stars in the infinite heavens." Gould had published "eight elaborate volumes....the value of which perhaps none but the men of science can fully comprehend. The work has been immense." Waterston had been responsible for printing the dedication separately so that Mrs. Gould's many friends could see it, they being unlikely to look into "....these rare and expensive volumes." Gould had founded the Cordoba Observatory in Argentia. It still operates under the auspices of the University of Cordoba. Allibone was an editor and bibliographer. He may have been in a position to place a notice of the reprinted dedication in a periodical with a large circulation. His "Dictionary of English Literature and British and American Authors, with more than 46,000 author entries, was first published in 1858. It is still cited today, and was reprinted as lately as 1965.
