[Cooper, Thomas?]:

TO ANY MEMBER OF CONGRESS.

Day & Evans, Printers, Chatham Square, corner of Mott street, [New York: 1831] 8pp, caption title [as issued], lightly worn. Good+. American Imprints attributes authorship to Cooper, and records publications from South Carolina only. Cooper denounces Congress's ban on Sunday mail deliveries as an illegitimate attempt by the clergy to dominate the Nation's political decisions. "The clergy are a class of men, who, in direct contradiction to their master Christ, ordain the observance of forbidden practices, that they may live in ease and luxury by this gross and manifest imposition. Sunday is their day of labor; of earning money; but they forbid any one else to do so." 126 NUC 0680451 [1]. Sabin 95890. II Turnbull 230 and AI 6695, 11997 [ref.]. Not in Eberstadt, Decker, BEAL.
