PROPOSED NATIONAL SYSTEM OF CHEAP FREIGHT RAILWAYS. FREIGHT CAPACITY TEN-FOLD OVER THE PRESENT DOUBLE-TRACK. COST OF TRANSPORTATION TO BE REDUCED TO ONE-THIRD OF PRESENT CHARGES. LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE NATIONAL CHEAP FREIGHT RAILWAY LEAGUE, AND OTHERS TO CITIZENS OF TEXAS.

[Washington?: 1867] 8pp, folded folio leaf. Untrimmed, lightly worn. Caption title, Good+ to Very Good. Sherwood and his National Cheap Freight Railway League seek "to lessen the cost of transportation" by breaking up "the monopoly system" and pattern of "exclusive privilege" that have oppressed small business and farmers, and by opening the railway network "to free competition in transportation." They also support government subsidies for "a railroad to unite the Gulf of Mexico, at Mobile and Pensacola, with the lakes at Cleveland and Chicago." The League's membership roster, which includes many members of Congress, is printed. The pamphlet includes a Letter from the League to the organizers of a mass meeting of the 'Cheap-Freight Railway League' in Houston, and prints various endorsements of the League's goals.
