GOVERNMENT- THE INDIANA CONNECTION - CRAZY CRATE JP 1-38 BOOK 16:  GOVERNORS MESSAGES AND LETTERS.  VOLUME  III:  MESSAGES AND PAPERS OF JONATHAN JENNINGS, RATLIFF BOON, AND WILLIAM HENDRICKS.  1816 - 1825.    Edited by Logan Esaray.  Indianapolis:  Indiana Historical Commission.  1924.   544 pages.  Hardcover.  Note: ex-library copy. Binding is still tight, but the front hinge is beginning to crack.  The photograph of Jonathan Jennings (between pages 26 and 27 is present but nearly torn in half.  This book is the third in a series of volumes which reprinted the messages and papers of Indiana's early governors.  Although Indiana had been a territory since the creation of the Northwest Ordnance, Indiana entered the union in 1816 as a state. These papers represent the earliest attempts of the Hoosier government to function as a state.  Jonathan Jennings was elected as the first governor.  He resigned in 1822 to take his place as a state representative in Washington, D. C.  The Lieutenant Governor, Ratcliff Boon, filled out the un-expired term of three months, while waiting for the newly elected governor, William Hendricks, to take office.   In 1825 Hendricks resigned to take a seat as a state representative in Washington.  Indiana, like other young western states, had many intimate and important relations with the federal government.  The citizens owed the federal government several million dollars for land.  The land offices were the most important business centers in the state.  A large part of the state was occupied by Indians over whom the General Assembly had no control and necessarily had to look to the federal government for relief.  By compact the federal government had agreed, on consideration of the state foregoing certain rights of taxation, to help the state build roads.  The state had no sufficient circulating medium and consequently had to look to the federal government for assistance.  One of the most persistent difficulties of the young state was that of fugitives from justice or slavery crossing the Ohio River and this was controlled by the federal government.   Letters and messages include correspondence with the Kentucky governor concerning Kentucky's lack of returning fugitives who had stolen free Negroes and taken them into slavery in Kentucky; correspondence between Jennings, Lieutenant Governor Christopher Harrison, the Indiana Senate and House of Representatives over Jennings role in the treaty of St. Mary's with the Wea Indians, several messages concerning Kentucky Kidnappers of Indiana Negroes;  Jennings proclamation (in 1822) that the second Friday of December "be observed as a day of Publick supplication and prayer to Almighty God, that he may avert the just judgments impending upon our land, and that in his manifold mercies our country may be blessed with fruitful seasons and our citizens with health and peace." Correspondence for Hendricks includes messages on sales of public lands, the Black Hawk War, the Ohio-Michigan boundary dispute, internal improvements, and more.  The 13-page index contains nearly 1,300 names.  PRICE WAS  $30. NOW ON SALE - 10% OFF AT $27

Edited by Dorothy Riker and Gayle Thornbrough.   Indiana Historical Bureau.  1954.  726 pages.  Hardcover.   Ray was elected to the sixteen-member State Senate in 1821 and was elected president pro tem of the Senate, after Ratcliff Boon resigned his lieutenant governorship to go to Congress in 1824.  Ray then became acting governor after the resignation of William Hendricks, who had been elected to the United States Senate.  He was just thirty years old.  He was elected to the governorship in 1825 and 1828 but after his term of office was over, he was unable to win another elective office.  In state and local matters the legislation sought by Ray and considered by the General Assembly concerned internal improvements, revision of the penal code, education, care of the poor and handicapped, militia, county and township government, the judiciary, matters concerning Indians, etc.  No significant body of legislation was passed during his administration.   His correspondence indicates a generous, sympathetic attitude toward the writers who requested favors or information and a sense of the responsibility of his trust as a public officer.   PRICE WAS  $17.50 - NOW ON SALE - 10% OFF AT $15.75

During his administration, the Indians ceded their lands, plus the Wabash and Erie Canal and the Michigan Road were built.  He served in various committees after his term of office expired.   PRICE WAS  $15.00 NOW ON SALE - 10% OFF AT $13.50

Civil War General Lew Wallace was the son of David Wallace. In his youth, David Wallace moved to Indiana, studied law, and became a competent lawyer.  In 1828 he was chosen to the lower house of the General Assembly.  He was Noah Noble's Lieutenant Governor.  Wallace's administration was involved with continuing to obtain land grants to extend the Wabash and Erie Canal to Terre Haute, the construction of macadamized roads instead of railroads between Jeffersonville and Crawfordsville and between Indianapolis and Lafayette, and continued removal of the Indians.  Following his term in office, he returned to private law practice.  PRICE WAS  $15.00 NOW ON SALE - 10% OFF AT $13.50

Bigger was born in Warren County, Ohio, in 1802 and in 1829 moved to Indiana.  In 1833 and 1834 he was elected to the General Assembly.  In 1836 the Assembly elected him as presiding judge of the Sixth Judicial Circuit.  He resigned after being elected governor in 1840. He was Indiana's last Whig governor.  The internal improvements advocated by previous governors Noah Noble and David Wallace had brought Indiana into a desperate financial situation  Bigger supported continuation of internal improvements, but said that they should be prioritized, or classified into levels of importance.  Public debt was a major concern of his administration and the General Assembly created many committees to investigate previous expenditures for internal improvements.  Investigations were also made into the State Bank.  Other reports covered the care of the insane, education and the state prison.  He was not re-elected, and he moved to Ft. Wayne, Indiana, where he practiced private law and died in 1846.  PRICE WAS  $15.00 NOW ON SALE - 10% OFF AT $13.50


I simply can not wait any longer to introduce you to some of the new books that I bought at the big book sale John Palmer and I attended at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.  It was held in the Agriculture Building.  We arrived early and waited in the car instead of in the rain.  Wise choice!  A crowd of over 200 was waiting in line when the doors opened precisely at 9:00.  I was lucky enough to grab one of the big orange grocery carts which were available, and I used the "kiddy seat" to hold my purse.  If I had had to carry that purse, we would have been home much earlier!  No matter what my purse has in it, it weighs a ton, and I took care to bury it with books right off the bat!  Not a problem!  There were more books there than you could look at in a 9 to 5 day!  Some were on the tables, some were piled in boxes or on the floor.  There were CDs, VHS tapes, DVDs, records, stationery supplies, and BOOKS - One box, about three feet long, I counted, had 42 books in it.  There were 16 boxes in a row facing south and 16 boxes in a row facing north.  Spaces between the book boxes held more books.  Keeping the boxes full would have helped protect the books from sliding every which way, but the meager staff assigned to that job were not nearly equal to the task presented by the tables.  My estimate is probably way off, but I am sure there were more than one hundred tables in that building.  There was ample room for moving around and to scan the books, you just got in line and walked one way up one set of tables and then back the other side looking at hundreds of books.  Naturally, it was impossible to look at all of them, but John and I really tried.  I was looking for some "easy reading" books for a change of pace in a few crates this summer.  Here is a sampling of what I bought!

When Indianapolis entered the ABA in 1967, the name Pacers was chosen for its dual meaning-a nod to Indiana's historical ties to harness racing pacers as well as a reference to the pace car for the city's most famous sporting event, the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race.   

My Favorite4 Quote from this book is from Muhammad Ali.  He said, "Hating people because of their color is wrong.  And it doesn't matter which color is doing the hating.  It's just plain wrong."  Price was $16.95, SALE Price $8.


Hope you enjoyed sharing The Indiana Connection books with my book sale finds.  There will be more along shortly.  A little bit of each for awhile.  It is summer, lighten up, read more, play more, emjoy more.  Pat from YOGS.
