"Concerns the Pennsylvania Canal" [Rink]. Lacock responds to the "malice" of Stevenson's attempt "to traduce, discredit, and criminate" him for his service as a Canal Commissioner. His defense produces much information on the development of the Pennsylvania Canal, one of the most significant projects in Pennsylvania's "canal-building orgy" of the 1820's and 1830's. See, Taylor, The Transportation Revolution 43. A rare pamphlet, the usual sources locating only three copies.
