Hoar (1816-1895), from Concord, Mass., he was a State Senator, Justice of the Massachusetts Supreme Court, a founder of the Free Soil Party in Massachusetts, and Attorney General under U.S. Grant. His brother George was a United States Senator; his sister Elizabeth was engaged to Emerson’s brother Charles, but he died of consumption before the marriage; his brother Edward was with Thoreau when they accidentally set a fire that burned more than 300 acres of woods outside Concord. He was at Henry’s bedside with a bouquet of hyacinths two hours before he died (Harding, 1965, p.466). Removed from an album, leaving paper adhesions that obscure the imprint, but a revenue stamp dated 1864 remains. A Fine carte.
