Wright, John S.:

ILLINOIS TO MASSACHUSETTS, GREETING! CONFLICTING TEACHINGS OF SOUTH CAROLINA AND MASSACHUSETTS. A PLEA FROM THE YOUNG WEST, THE GIANT OFFSPRING OF UNION, FOR THAT UNION AND, FOR OUR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, AS INSTITUTED BY OUR HONORED FATHERS. "LET WELL ENOUGH ALONE."

Wright and Potter., Boston: 1866 22, [2] pp. Original printed self-wrappers. A bit of tanning and edge wear, else Very Good. Wright was an indefatigable Chicago editor, promoter, entrepreneur, and booster of that City and his State. He identifies himself here as a War Democrat. DAB, whose sketch of Wright's life is otherwise respectful, says the author's works published during this period "gave evidence of the weakening of his mind. His reason finally gave way, and he was committed to an asylum in Philadelphia." This pamphlet lends some support to DAB's diagnosis. Here he solves the "disputes between the schools of Massachusetts and South Carolina," which "have now kept us by the ears for nearly forty years, and as we shall see have rent the Union." Both State Sovereignty and National Union are approved; Wright touts his latest publications as well. FIRST EDITION. Not in Bartlett, Sabin, Eberstadt, Decker, LCP. 675 NUC 0468067 [7].
