[Clark, Peter]:

A LETTER TO THE HONORABLE JAMES CLARK, ON THE USE OF RAIL ROADS.

[Nashua, NH?: 1842?] 16pp, stitched, Near Fine. The subject of the Letter was the proposed extension of a railroad from Concord to the Connecticut River. Peter Clark, upon invitation from James Clark, opines on the compensation that the Boston and Lowell Railroad, and the Concord Nashua and Lowell Railroad, ought to receive for increased traffic over their roads between Boston and Concord, resulting from the contemplated extension. Peter performs appropriate economic and legal analyses, predicting that arrangements "will eventually work out the quickest and cheapest conveyance to the great business emporium of New-England," and will prove "the utility of railroads in removing obstacles so fatal to successful industry, as are ever found in expensive transportation." FIRST EDITION. Sabin 13351. 111 NUC 0456909 [1]. OCLC 13623653 [5]. Not in AI, Eberstadt, Decker.
