Stewart, Andrew:

THE NATIONAL UNION UPHELD AND PRESERVED BY A NATIONAL SYSTEM OF EDUCATION. THE ANNUAL ADDRESS TO THE FRANKLIN AND PHILO LITERARY SOCIETIES OF JEFFERSON COLLEGE, CANONSBURG, PA. DELIVERED ON THE DAY OF THE ANNUAL COMMENCEMENT, SEPTEMBER 24, 1835.

Printed by Matthew Maclean, Pittsburgh: 1835 15pp, dbd. Tanned and foxed, about Good+. Speaking a couple of years after the Nullification Crisis had shaken the Nation, Stewart says, "Let this truth be forever before you, that if a single link be broken in the chain of our Union, our liberties are gone forever. Inculcate, then, a constant veneration for the Union of the States." He urges education as a cure for the "premonitory symptoms of anarchy," and for assuring "that great and essential element in every republican government, equality among the people." FIRST EDITION. Sabin 91636. AI 34382 [5].
