[Taggart, Samuel]:

AN ADDRESS, TO THE INDEPENDENT ELECTORS OF THE HAMPSHIRE NORTH DISTRICT.

Printed by J. Denio, [Greenfield (MA): (1811)] 31pp, caption title [as issued], loosened, lightly tanned. Good+. The Federalist Congressman explains his positions on the great questions of the Congressional session: the American occupation of West Florida [opposed], the dissolution of the Bank of the United States [opposed], the law passed "for the erection of the territory of Orleans into an independent state" [opposed], and the non-importation act [opposed]. As to West Florida, he says the title of the U.S. is "problematical at best," explaining the complexity of the issue of ownership. On Louisiana, he takes the standard Federalist position: its population consists primarily of French, Negroes, and others unsuited to the American way of self-government; the Constitution never was meant to permit admission of States "not within the original territory" of the United States. FIRST EDITION. AI 24010 [7]. Sabin 94203. Not in Eberstadt, Decker.
