Whig Party in Massachusetts:

MASSACHUSETTS DEFRAUDED IN RELATION TO THE PUBLIC LANDS.

1840 Boston, [1840]. 11, [1] pp, stitched, untrimmed. Caption title [as issued]. Last page an advertisement for Harrison-Whig documents published by Weeks, Jordan & Co. Scattered foxing, moderate wear. Rare, but Good only. A Whig presidential tract opposing the Van Buren-Democratic Party policy regarding disposition of the vast public lands owned by the United States. That policy would "give the whole of these lands to the States in which they are located. By such a measure the old States, which bore the burden of the revolution, which directly gave one portion of these lands, and contributed the greater part for the purchase of the residue, are to be robbed of what is justly their own...Freemen of Massachusetts, to you the appeal is made..." FIRST EDITION. AI 40-4528 [1-MH]. Sabin 103273.
