Smith, Henry:

THE EXTERNAL CONDITIONS OF THE PROSPERITY OF OUR COLLEGES. AN INAUGURAL ADDRESS, DELIVERED JULY 30, 1846. BY...PRESIDENT OF MARIETTA COLLEGE. PUBLISHED BY THE TRUSTEES.

Printed at the Intelligencer Office, [Marietta, OH: 1847 26pp. Original printed wrappers, stitched. Light dust and wear. Very Good. Smith gives a hard-hitting defense of the American character and American democratic institutions. He rebuts the "slanders" of "our ill-wishers beyond the seas": American civilization is moving forward, both in "the production and equitable distribution of the means of life," and "the progress of individual man; the development of his faculties as an intellectual, emotive, immortal being." Despite predictions of Church Establishmentarians, American religion, which is based upon "the voluntary support of their flocks," flourishes. Our institutions "spring from the people. They belong to the people." Morgan records five institutional locations plus himself, all in Ohio except for the American Antiquarian Society. FIRST EDITION. Morgan Library 4845 [6]. Not in Sabin, Thomson, Eberstadt, Decker.
