Massachusetts:

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF MASSACHUSETTS, ON THE SUBJECT OF IMPRESSED SEAMEN: WITH THE EVIDENCE AND DOCUMENTS ACCOMPANYING IT. PUBLISHED BY ORDER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.

Boston: 1813 84pp, stitched as issued, untrimmed, light scattered soil. Very Good. An anti-War Report demonstrating that, "in a vast number of cases" allegedly impressed American seamen were in fact "Englishmen, Irishmen, or other subjects of Great Britain." Others supposedly impressed had "voluntarily entered into the British service and received bounty and pay." Accompanied by depositions of witnesses, the Report argues that America's casus belli is bogus. This issue, as Cohen notes in BEAL, has the erratum at the base of page 84. FIRST EDITION. AI 29094. BEAL 7494. Not in Eberstadt, Decker.
