Newark, N.J. Stephen Holbrook, Printer, 1860. 24pp. Later plain blue wrappers [some discoloration, ink notation on front wrap]. Light fox and wear, Good+.
An attempt by owners of the Burlington and Middlesex Railroad to break the legislatively-created monopoly enjoyed by the Camden and Amboy Railroad. The Burlington is a "purely country road, so much needed by many populous localities," especially farmers desiring to send "to different markets the large amount of agricultural productions grown on our fertile and well-cultivated farms."
The Camden and Amboy's objection, that it would interfere "with the contract of the State, securing to them an exclusive through road," is groundless, as demonstrated by the opinions of counsel included in this pamphlet. The pamphlet was also printed in 44 pages with this title. OCLC records them both. Sabin records only the 44-page edition.
