The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments,
New York, American Bible Society, 1845.
This Bible is in good condition, everything complete and
firmly intact. There is a good amount of foxing.
There is some ephemera, including a photograph of Wm.
Crosby, apparently a former Governor of Maine. It is
unclear here how he and his wife, whose obituary is
included, are related to this family.

DEATH OF AUGUSTUS H. ROBINSON, OF YELLOW FEVER
The relatives of Augustus H. Robinson of this city received a letter
Tuesday informing them that he died of yellow fever on the 9th of
last August at the Port of Babia or St. Salvador, Brazil. Mr. Robinson
was only 24 and a half years of age but he had worked his way up
in his vocation until he had become the first mate of a large ship, the
Little Willie owned by a German in Callao, Peru, but flying the Costa
Rica flag. The ship, guano loaded, while on a passage from Callao
to Hamburg, lost her rudder and sprung a leak in a hurricane; she
went into the Port of Bahia for repairs in the latter part of June, and
remained there two months. It was very sickly in that port at the time.
Mr. Robinson was a young man of remarkable energy, and of
unimpeachable integrity. His untimely death is a sad blow to his
relatives here, and is deeply deplored by a wide circle of friends who
knew him well and who esteemed him highly. 1878 [date handwritten]
