[Maryland]:

ADDRESS OF THE UNION STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE, OF MARYLAND.

John W. Woods, [Baltimore: (1861)] 8pp, disbound. Caption title [as issued]. Contemporary plain wrappers. Uncut. Good+, with light wear. "Our situation in the geographical center of the country, holding the District of Columbia and the capital within our boundary, gives us an important power and a dangerous position." Politically, geographically, economically, Maryland's interests lie with the Union. Moreover, there is no moral justification for secession. "Was there ever an executive of so great a nation, so completely under the watch and ward of eager sentinels of the Constitution?" Members of the Committee-- with Brantz Mayer, George Merryman, S.S. Maffitt, Robt. Goldsborough, and others participating-- included representatives from each Maryland County. Bartlett says Mayer wrote it. FIRST EDITION. LCP 6469. Bartlett 3011.
