[Jackson, Andrew]:

PROCEEDINGS OF THE MANUFACTURERS, MECHANICS, MERCHANTS, TRADERS, AND OTHERS, OF THE CITY AND COUNTY OF PHILADELPHIA, SIGNERS OF THE MEMORIAL TO CONGRESS, ASKING FOR THE RETURN OF THE GOVERNMENT DEPOSITES TO THE BANK OF THE UNITED STATES. WITH A REPORT OF THE DELEGATES APPOINTED TO REPRESENT AT WASHINGTON THE VIEWS AND WISHES OF THE MEMORIALISTS, AND A STATEMENT OF THEIR INTERVIEW WITH ANDREW JACKSON, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

Philadelphia: 1834 15, [1 blank] pp. Stitched, untrimmed. Lightly foxed and worn [old horizontal folds], Good+. The "Great Meeting of the People" sought "relief from the present pecuniary distress" about a year into Jackson's second term. It blames the country's financial upheavals on his removal of the federal deposits and urges him to "return the Government Deposites to the Bank of the United States." Organizers of the Meeting record their recent interview with Jackson, who made clear that he would never restore the deposits to the "monstrous" Bank of the United States which, in his view, was an unconstitutional entity. The usual charges abound: once again Jackson is guilty of "usurpation." FIRST EDITION. AI 26226 [5]. OCLC 13098965 [2]. Not in Eberstadt or Decker.
