Hallett, Benjamin Franklin:

[MR. HALLETT'S REPLY TO MR. WILSON'S "PERSONAL EXPLANATION."] "THE QUESTION OF VERACITY" EVADED BY SENATOR WILSON AND AGAIN SETTLED AGAINST HIM.

[np: 1856] 8pp, stitched, light wear and folds. Caption title [as issued]. Very Good. Inscribed in ink on title page, 'With respects of B.F. Hallett.' During the 1850s Hallett-- in his early years a Jacksonian reformer and advocate of Indian rights-- was "a 'Doughface' steering by Southern charts." DAB. This scarce pamphlet arraigns Senator Henry Wilson of Massachusetts and the Republican-Northern Whig position that Congress should prohibit slavery in the Kansas Territory. Although Hallett agrees Congress has constitutional power to enact such a ban, he advocates Popular Sovereignty and denounces the "Free-Soil falsehood." FIRST EDITION. Not in Sabin, Decker, LCP, or Eberstadt. OCLC 24818415 [4].
