Boston: Wells and Lilly, 1821. 28pp, stitched. Blank edges of several leaves slightly chipped, some dustsoil. Good+.
Adams was Secretary of State, then a stepping-stone to the Presidency, during the entire two terms of the Monroe Administration. His July 4, 1821 oration attacking England angered the Federalist remnant in New England, and was ammunition for those seeking to diminish his chances for the Presidency. The author climbs on the bandwagon and dumps on Adams, not only for the substance of his speech, but for the style as well.
