[Bloodgood, Abraham and Judah Hammond]:

A CIRCULAR LETTER, FROM THE GENERAL REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE, OF THE CITY AND COUNTY OF NEW YORK, TO THEIR REPUBLICAN FELLOW CITIZENS, THROUGHOUT THE STATE, IN VINDICATION OF THE MEASURES OF THE GENERAL GOVERNMENT, AND ON THE NECESSITY OF SUPPORTING THEM AGAINST FOREIGN INFLUENCE AND DOMESTIC FACTION.

Frank, White & Co., New York: 1809 Stitched, bound in modern plain wrappers. xxiii, 105pp. Untrimmed, generously margined, lightly worn. Old institutional rubberstamp on title page, signature in ink ['Hugh Gelston']. On rear free endpaper is inscribed in ink, 'for H. Gelston N.H. Sayre.' Good+ or so. Bloodgood and Hammond were Chairman and Secretary, respectively, of New York City's General Republican Committee. Other Committee members are listed by Ward. This is a detailed attack on Federalists and the New York City press, and a vindication of Jeffersonian-Madisonian domestic and foreign policies. Under their "unremitted course of integrity and patriotism...long continued abuses had been instantly remedied, arbitrary acts repealed and even the whole system of internal taxation entirely abolished." Nevertheless, "divisions were fomented," the government "vilified." Federalist opponents pursued a dishonorable and "injurious course" during the presidential election; they are responsible for creating the "factions" so deplored by the Founders. FIRST EDITION. AI 17376 [3]. Sabin 5982.
