[Lacock, Abner]:

A NARRATIVE OF FACTS RELATIVE TO THE CONDUCT OF SOME OF THE MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATURE OF PENNSYLVANIA, PROFESSING TO BE DEMOCRATS, AT THE ELECTION OF A SENATOR TO REPRESENT THIS STATE IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES, ON THE 13TH OF JANUARY, 1807.

Philadelphia: May, 1807 16pp, dbd. Scattered foxing and light to moderate wear. Institutional and release rubberstamps. Good or so. This is the first of two printings, the second having occurred in June, It condemns the "political treachery of Dr. Lieb, [who] has denounced and proscribed as Quids and apostates, some of the most respectable Democrats in the City and County of Philadelphia- merely because they had expressed their disapprobation of his conduct at the senatorial election." The reference is to Michael Lieb, "a stanch, albeit violent Jeffersonian." DAB. Pennsylvania's Democrats, riven by faction, would continue their dispute into the next year, when anger at Virginia's domination would cause some of them to support George Clinton over James Madison for the presidency. FIRST EDITION. Gaines 07-17. AI 13168 [5]. Sabin 60268.
