From Staff Reports Jefferson's land deal brings $772,500 - . . • . \J ' '."' Louisiana Purchase paper was a steal for two manuscript dealers By RICHARD PYLE Tlie Associated Press The Associated Press Ned Downing (foreground), Boston, and Udo Hielscher, Germany, look at the original presidential proclamation of the Louisiana Purchase on display for the auction Friday. V PAGEANT SCANDAL NEW YORK — A copy of Thomas Paine's "Common Sense" sold for $123,500 and an account of the Lewis and Clark expedition went for $28,750 —'more than 11 times the cost of the trip itself. But the original proclamation of Thomas Jefferson's Louisiana Purchase sold for far less than the document's estimated $1 million to $1.5 million value. Hours after it failed to sell at an auction at Christie's, two dealers stepped in and snapped up the historic 1803 proclamation, signed by then-President Jefferson and his secretary of state, James Madison, at a bargain price of $772,500. The pair suggested their transaction with Christie's was almost as much of a steal as Jefferson's deal with Napoleon Bonaparte. "They blew it, and I think we got away with a fantastic deal," exulted W. Graham Arader III, a Manhattan manuscripts dealer. "It's an unbelievable buy," added his partner, William Reese, of New Haven, Conn. Christie's auction house officials were not in the office Friday evening to respond to buyers' comments. The beribboned, 18-page document, bearing the Great Seal of the United States, was the top prize in the collection offered for sale by Jane Engelhard, widow of Charles Engelhard, who dealt iri • precious metals and other com;.." modities. >X Jefferson's deal — a million; square miles of French-claimed••; land at 4 cents an acre — more than doubled the size of the fledg; ling United States and has been; called history's greatest real es. • tate bargain. ^-: Spain, facing colonial troubles;; had secretly ceded the vast region to France, whose renewed ambl- '. tions in North America so worried; Jefferson that he jumped at ; Napoleon Bonaparte's willingness ; to sell it for $15 million. "The Louisiana Purchase was probably the most significant : achievement of Jefferson as president," said Chris Coover,; Christie's top manuscript expert, after the bidding failed. Arader and Reese, in a joint telephone interview, said they waited until the bidding was suspended, by Christie's auctioneer Stephen ' Massey at $750,000, then negotiated the deal on their own. The pair said Christie's had set a secret minimum price of $900,000 on the manuscript, but in;, the end settled for less. •'.'.•' Coover said Christie's had unsuccessfully tried to enlist institutions or private buyers willing to. donate or lend the proclamation to . the National Archives, which owns the Declaration of Independence, the original U.S. Constitution and other major historical documents. Arader and Reese said they too would try to find a public-spirited' buyer. Miss New York fights for crown, honor She took a job and was called the 'other woman' in a divorce lawsuit By JUDIE GLAVE The Associated Press Friend sues Fergie for $142,500 By The Associated Press LONDON — Just when the Duchess of York was making some progress on her financial problems, she's been sued by a friend for repayment of a $150,000 loan. It's believed to be the first time a member of the royal family faced court action for collection of a debt.

The suit asked for the remaining $142,500 plus interest and legal costs.' The Sun, the tabloid newspaper which broke the story, said the loan paid for a six-week French holiday in August 1994 for the duchess and her daughters, Princess Beatrice, 7, and Princess Eugenie, 5. Last week, British newspapers were reporting that the free-spending Sarah Ferguson owed $1.5 million or her bank. Buckingham Palace made it known that Queen Elizabeth II, her mother-in- law, would not settle the debt this time as she has in the past. Within days, the estranged wife of Prince Andrew announced she had struck a deal with a U.S. producer of children's TV that would allow her to satisfy the bank. NEW YORK — Miss New York State Helen Goldsby began the week defending her crown and ended it defending her virtue. Pageant officials recently moved to dethrone the Juilliard-trained opera singer because she will be too busy working as a Broadway understudy. GOLDSBY Now she has been named as the homewrecking "other woman" in a divorce case, giving the pageant people further grounds to remove her. "Her contract stipulates that she will not commit any acts of moral turpitude ... and that she be a role model for younger people," state pageant spokeswoman Joan Jones said. "How do you think- it affects it?" Think two words: Vanessa Williams. The real-life operatic plot began when state pageant officials stripped Goldsby of her crown after she took a job as an understudy in the Broadway play "Master Class" and could not make public appearances. The tall, 25-year-old beauty refused to go quietly. The crown is still hers, she insisted at a news conference Tuesday where her lawyer, Dominic Barbara, said he would file a $2 million breach-of-contract lawsuit. As of Friday, he had not. Goldsby said she didn't perform her duties as Miss New York because "there are no duties." She said she took the understudy role because she had no money and couldn't pay her rent. Nonsense, said pageant officials, who have already arranged to crown runner-up Sunita Paramsothy in a special ceremony next month. There were no appearances be, cause Goldsby "was unavailable to go, refused to go,, or could not be found," said Leonard Horn, chief executive of the Miss America Pageant, the umbrella group for state pageants. Goldsby's monetary woes may interest Audrey Adams-Maillian, who claimed in divorce papers that her husband, Wall Street financier W. Brian Maillian, has been having an affair with, and supporting, Goldsby for months. Adams-Maillian said her husband — the 46-year-old head of an investment banking firm — spent their 14th wedding anniversary with Goldsby at a hotel in Los Angeles and rang in the new year with her in Jamaica. Adams-Maillian also said she tracked them to hotels in New York, Washington and Florida, and to Goldsby's apartment in Brooklyn. Ira Garr, Adams-Maillian's lawyer, said the affair began in Ju- We Service All Makes of Sewing Machines and Vacuums Midwest Sewing & Vacuum 340 S. Broadway 825-0451 \y, two months before Goldsby sang a, Puccini aria at the Miss- America Pageant as a pageant fi-". nalist and one of the winners of the talent competition. Adams-Maillian is asking for a 1 divorce on grounds of adultery" and cruelty, and wants custody: of the couple's 10-year-old- daughter. ; Maillian had no comment. ; Goldsby's lawyer said Friday he; had not seen the divorce petition^ but insisted it would have no ..e££ feet on Goldsby's breach-of-con-; tract suit. "There is no doubt ,my client has both an innocent mind and cent soul," Barbara said.
