Portsmouth, N.H. . 27pp, with the half title. Untrimmed, disbound, scattered foxing and an ink numeral, Good+.
A fine speech blending the celebration of July 4 with recollections of Washington's achievements. "Our national anniversary, and the fame of WASHINGTON are mutual guarantees for each other, that neither shall be forgotten."
On the establishment of the Constitution Webster says, "It was their commercial embarrassment and distresses, which first convinced the States of the indispensable necessity of a new General Government." Washington's counsel of neutrality in European conflicts ought to be heeded today. Warning Federalists who oppose the ongoing War of 1812 Webster says, "Resistance and Insurrection form no parts of our creed. The disciples of Washington are neither tyrants in power, nor rebels out."
