[Cheever, George]:

THE REPUBLIC OR THE OLIGARCHY? WHICH? AN APPEAL AGAINST THE PROPOSED TRANSFER OF THE RIGHT TO VOTE FROM THE PEOPLE TO THE STATE. BY ONE OF THE PEOPLE.

American News Company, New York: 1866 36pp, stitched. Last blank loose, lightly foxed. Good+. Cheever attacks the Republican Congress for failing, in the proposed Fourteenth Amendment, to guarantee to freedmen the right to vote. "The right to vote belongs to the people, and can neither be withheld nor bestowed by the government; otherwise the people are slaves. The essence of an oligarchy is the exclusion of particular classes from the vote." Congress's refusal is a lingering badge of slavery. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 70009. Not in Work, Blockson, Bartlett.
