George Walton, 1781, $30. Button Gwinnett has been called the "Man of. Mystery." It seems to fit He shot up Into prominence like a meteor and fell like one. And outside of those two years of prominence little is known of him. He was an Englishman and was born about 1732, possibly at Bristol. As to circumstance of birth, family, schooling and business nothing definite is known. Was his'1 christian name "Button" or was Button a corruption of Burton or Bouton. The name of Gwinnett Is rare in England today. Ho is believed to have been married, but no one knows when or whom he married. "We know of none among the living In this state," writes a Georgia historian, "in whose veins courses a drop of blood Inherited from or kindred with that of Button Gwinnett" He arrived about 1802 at Charlestown, S. C. What he did there is not known. About 17C5 he engaged In general trading at Savannah, Ga. About 1770 he bought the Island of St. Catherine from Rev. Thomas Bosdmworth nnd his Indian wife. The price is said to have been 5,250 English pounds. Thereupon he took up the life of a planter. Is there an authentic portrait of Gwinnett in existence? Only one seems tohave any sort of claim to being genuine. This fs or was in the possession of Hampton L. 'Carson of Philadelphia. It has this merit: It shows a face which corresponds fairly well with Gwinnett's known characteristics. Where lies the body of Gwinnett? This seems an open question. His burial may have taken place in the old Colonial cemetery nt Savannah. Or his remains may He on the Island of St Catherine. Gwinnett's name Is on the monument erected in Augusta In 18SC with those of Lyman Hall and George Walton.

St Andrew's Parish was full of Mclntoshes, who had come over from Scotland In one of Oglethorpe's companies. Lachlan Mcintosh and Gwinnett were wont to clash in the Council of Safety. Gwinnett's election a President of the Council gave him opportunity to and Commander-m-Chle- f get after the Mclntoshes.

Gwinnett seut an expedition against East Florida and gave the command to a subordinate of Mcintosh. Tl'.e expedition was a rank failure. Gwinnett's defeat for the governorship followed. And the Clan Mcintosh went about chortling with "I know how agonizing they arc. For years I was a chronic satisfaction.

Well, you need not feel lonesome. Who was he? Well, he was one of the three delegates from the Colony of Georgia to the Second Continental Congress In Philadelphia In 1770 and as such delegate affixed his signature to the Declaration of Independence. There Is nothing sentimental about this g price. It is strictly in accord with the universal law of supply and demand which obtains in autographs Just as it does in pork or potatoes. There are" only twenty-od- d known signatures of Gwinnett in existence. There are probably ten times that number of rich men in the country who want his signature. This demand comes especially from men who are ambitious to own a complete set of the signatures of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence. A census made last year by Charles F. Jenkins of Philadelphia showed twenty-seve- n of these complete sets, seventeen of which are permanently in public institutions and ten id private hands. Most of the Gwinnett autographs In these sets are either documents signed, or cut signatures. The J. Pierpont Morgan collection No. 14, has the draft of a will In Gwinnett's handwriting. The Henry E. Huntington set No. 1G has a letter signed, dated March 21, 1777, less, than two months before his tragic death. The Louis Bamberger set No. 24 has a note written by Gwinnett in the third person, beginning as follows: "Mrs. Gwinnett's compliments to Mr. and Mrs. Sheftel, hopes Mrs. Sheftel is recovered," and so on. Mr. Jenkins, owner of set No. 20, paid $14,000 in 1924 for Gwinnett's signature on an Indenture of a mortgage on St Catherine's Island, Ga., April 25, 1770. g This autograph Is Button Gwinnett's signature as witness on the original will of Joseph Stanley of Savannah, Ga., May 29, 1770, as seen by the reproduction. Mr. Manning paid' 4,000 for this document at the Danforth sale in Philadelphia In J912. How Inexorably the law of supply and demand obtains in autographs is shown by the following list of the prices brought at the Manning sale for the other signatures of the set Doubtless It will also elicit expressions of surprise from students of American history.
