Pennsylvania:

LETTER TO THE REPUBLICAN MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATURE OF PENNSYLVANIA, ON THE PRINCIPLES OF LEGISLATION AND EXECUTIVE CONDUCT BEST CALCULATED TO INSURE THE GOOD AND TRANQUILLITY OF THE STATE, AND THE PRESENT REPUBLICAN ASCENDENCY.

[Philadelphia?: 1810] 38pp, attractively bound in modern blue wrappers, foxed. Old ink numeral stamp on blank portion of title page. Good to Good+. Ever-vigilant against Federalist incursions, particularly worrisome because elements of the Jeffersonians have allied with that much-loathed Party, the author warns that Federalists "have never ceased to follow up their systematic plans of annoyance" to take control of State government. Singled out for especial scorn is William Duane, editor of the Aurora, denounced for "his ill-gotten influence, and abused press to the destruction, if it were possible, of republicanism itself." He imparts the "personal knowledge I have of secret, but dangerous combinations forming to obstruct, embarrass, and bring into popular disgrace the present administration of state government." The author canvasses trade, banking, agricultural, and other issues engaging the attention of the rival political parties. FIRST EDITION. AI 20553 [1]. Sabin 60209. Not in Gaines, Eberstadt, Decker.
