Portland [ME]: Printed at the Argus Office, by Thomas Todd, 1829. v, , 8-40pp, untrimmed, stitched. Light scattered foxing, Very Good.
A criticism of the Treaty settling the Northeast Boundary dispute. The author was Ashur Ware, editor of the Eastern Argus. Cohen notes that Ware was Maine's Secretary of State, and became a judge of the U.S. District Court for Maine. Sulpicius's letters were first published in the Eastern Argus, and are now "republished in a form more convenient for reference and preservation... An additional value is given to this republication by a variety of Notes, which have been subjoined to the text, and by an Appendix of interesting Official Documents, relating to our eastern boundary, which have never before been made public." The author is especially critical of the work of John Holmes, one of the commissioners designated to treat with England on the boundary's location.
Ware's articles are printed here. Three are not captioned. The others are captioned, "Decision under the fourth Article of the Treaty of Ghent. The Right to Exchange Territory"; "Boundaries of Nova Scotia"; "Mr. Holmes's Defence." These are followed by "Letters of Justus" with Errors Corrected, and Appendix containing "Letters of Mr. Holmes" and "Commissions, Nova Scotia".
