Lot 530: AQS on an off-white 4.5 x 3.5 sheet. Cooper pens a quote from chapter 16 of his work The Headsman, in full: "'Silenus rolled from his ass, to the great delight of a thousand shouting boys, and to the infinite scandal of the prisoners; the latter affirming to a man, that there was no acting in the case, but that the demi-god was shamefully under the influence of too many potations swallowed in his honor.'" Signed and inscribed at the bottom, "J. Fenimore Cooper for Miss Bea Grant, Paris, March 21st 1833." In fine condition, with a horizontal fold to lower portion and slight paper loss to reverse corners from removed mounting remnants.
