Neal, John:

APPEAL FROM THE AMERICAN PRESS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. IN BEHALF OF JOHN BRATISH ELIOVICH, LATE A MAJOR GENERAL IN THE SERVICE OF HER MOST CATHOLIC MAJESTY, THE QUEEN OF SPAIN: K.C.C. K.L.H. &C. AND NOW AN AMERICAN CITIZEN.

Printed at the Argus Office., Portland, Maine: 1840 48pp, disbound. Last leaf with a small hole in blank margin, and small 'withdrawn' rubberstamp in lower margin. Good+. The writer-- a poet, editor, and literary critic-- denounces the "atrocious calumnies of the American Press (instigated by Henry McIlvaine and John Stille, Jr., Attornies at Law of the Philadelphia Bar)" for its vicious treatment of Eliovich. McIlvaine and Stille pursued him vindictively for payment of small debts, with "shamefully and wilfully false accusations," abusing legal processes and causing his arrest on bogus charges. Neal defends him in this rare and unusually detailed report. FIRST EDITION. AI 40-4845 [4]. BAL 14892.
