[Phillips, Willard]:

AN APPEAL TO THE GOOD SENSE OF THE DEMOCRATS AND THE PUBLIC SPIRIT OF THE FEDERALISTS. BY A CITIZEN OF MASSACHUSETTS.

John Eliot, Boston: 1814 23pp, dbd, wide margins, untrimmed. Uniformly tanned with scattered foxing, Good+ or so. Sabin attributes authorship to Phillips, a Massachusetts lawyer and Federalist whose life is sketched in DAB. Here he bitterly indicts the nation's leaders-- the "architects of national ruin"-- whose "wild and wayward dereliction" has "humoured the phrenzy" of the people and led us into war. Nevertheless, he urges Massachusetts to do its duty and condemns New England secessionists or those who prefer surrender to the good fight. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 62529. AI 30697 [4]. Not in Eberstadt, Decker.
