Nott, Benjamin:

A REMEDY FOR THE "IRREPRESSIBLE CONFLICT;" OR CONSTITUTIONAL ETHICS. PART I. [-PART II.].

Albany, N.Y.: 1860 12mo, disbound, 96pp. Trimmed closely but without affecting text, else Very Good. Part II begins at page [49]; Part III is promised, but NUC surmises that the promise was not kept. Nott argues that the Union under the Constitution is "sacredly obligatory." Denouncing abolitionist calls for disunion as "folly," he asserts, "Are not these very differences the cause of the inception of this union? Is not the continuation of these differences the cause and the reason of the continuance of this union? This, just this, and all of this, is the union. There is no other...He who predicates the stability of this union on moral uniformity, nay, who does not predicate it on the permission of moral differences as inviolate political rights, has but illustrated his ignorance..." FIRST EDITION. Not in Sabin, LCP, Bartlett. 423 NUC 0338435 [7].
