SPEECH OF MR. TRUMAN SMITH, OF CONN.

Folded, untrimmed, and uncut. Light fox and wear, Very Good. A rare printing of this Connecticut Whig's defense of President Zachary Taylor's Administration, "from the charges made against it of an abuse of the appointing power, and of Gen. Taylor from the charge of inconsistency and bad faith." The Preface denounces "those declamatory, defamatory and sophistical speeches, which so much abound, and which really corrupt, and deprave the public taste and morals, and stir up, and greatly aggravate personal, partisan, and sectional controversies." OCLC locates copies at AAS and the Ohio Historical Society, under two accession numbers [as of 1/12]. Morgan 5843 [2]. Not in Wise & Cronin [Taylor], Eberstadt, Decker. This printing not in Sabin.
