Antique Masonic Manuscript/ Spanish American War Journal/military 1899 Captain For Sale
Estate find......Here we have a rare part of history. An unpublished manuscript and journal of Captain Henry Lang Jenkinson, Senior Captain of the 33rd Regiment and Commander of the 2nd Battalion of the Spanish American War 1898-1899, type written at Woodstock Ulster Co. New York....... I started to do a little research on this piece and here is what I came up with............. Henry Lang Jenkinson born 1868 attended Princeton from 1889 to 1890 as a "special student" but never graduated. He was the younger brother of a prominent businessman and philanthropist Richard Jenkinson. Henry and Richards father George, perhaps at some point in his career a ships doctor, had emigrated from Arklow, County Wicklow Ireland in the 1840's and got into the steamer trunk business with Thomas Peddie, a Newark industrialist. Henry had artistic inclinations which he repressed until middle age. Apparently he was intended to be the poet of the Jenkinson family, and had traveled on a "finishing" tour to Ireland, Scotland, and England. He married Mary Elizabeth Dey 1893. Mary Elizabeth born in Highstown, New Jersey was a descendent of John Dey a Captain in the Revolutionary War ( his ancestors Dirk Jansen Dey emigrated to America from Holland in 1641 ). Mary Elizabeth graduated from the Peddie Institute of Highstown 1885. She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. They had one daughter Elizabeth Dey Jenkinson. Henry, entering the army during the Spanish American War, was appointed Captain of a black regiment of the US Volunteer Infantry which he himself raised in 1899, he then served in the Philippines under Major ( later General ) Payton Conway March and captured the bodyguard of the rebel Aguinaldo. He was discharged in 1901....... and died in 1945 estranged from his family...... this I guess is the official "history" version of his life. It seems as though the manuscript ( edited by Henry ) might tell a slightly different tale......starting with a hand written document, a list of questions by a Doctor Mortimer Downer ( see pic.) (aaahhhh the look of INSANITY Lillith , the Doctor and grand kids at Woodstock early 1900's ) ( the pic. is for reference only and will not be included in this offering ). About 1912 Henry moved with his family to Woodstock, which was then becoming the important "Art Colony"............the untangling of the web of deceitful lies of the mind-controlled military, capitalism and racism,in my opinion run rampant between the pages of Captain Henry's documents......It also seems to have MANY masonic/satanic undertones......all the way down to his daughter, her husband, his family and Edmund Wilson a well known writer who his daughter had an adulterous affair........Included in this offering is approximately 200 pages type written, crudely bound and edited by "The Captain" (which still have an oh so faint scent of patchouly ) plus three research books: The Princess with the Golden Hair by Kristen Figgs & John Friedman, Simon Bolivar by Elizabeth Jenkinson Waugh and Hecate County by Edmund Wilson.......Any questions about this piece, I'll do my best to answer..........
