Fletcher, John:

AMERICAN PATRIOTISM FARTHER CONFRONTED WITH REASON, SCRIPTURE, AND THE CONSTITUTION: BEING OBSERVATIONS ON THE DANGEROUS POLITICKS TAUGHT BY THE REV. MR. EVANS, M.A. AND THE REV. DR. PRICE. WITH A SCRIPTURAL PLEA FOR THE REVOLTED COLONIES. BY...VICAR OF MADELEY, SALOP.

Shrewsbury: 1776 viii, 130pp. Disbound, Very Good. "This first edition is very rare" [Stevens]. A second issued from London a year later. "A reply to Caleb Evans's Letter to the Rev. Mr. John Wesley and Richard Price's Observations. A third edition appeared in 1791" [Adams]. Sabin cites only this edition, calling it a defense of "the right of Great Britain to tax the colonies." Indeed, Fletcher considers such taxation to be divinely ordained. "The duty of paying taxes to the protective power, is so strongly connected with christianity, that the Colonists must practically give up the scriptures, or submit to the reasonable demands of the British legislature." FIRST EDITION. Howes F191. Stevens Rare Americana 89. Adams Controversy 76-47a. Sabin 24724. Not in Church, Eberstadt, Larned.
