New York: T. and J. Swords, 1826. 44pp, disbound. Light scattered foxing, outer edge of final leaf lightly chipped. Good+ to Very Good. The Episcopal Bishop of New York gives an insightful address on the unique qualities of American life. America's hills and plains "are studded with the substantial and neat and commodious dwellings of freemen-- independent freemen, owners of the soil-- men who can proudly walk over their land and exultingly say- It is mine; I hold it tributary to no one." There are no "degraded vassals" here, overshadowed by "the castle which towers in grandeur." AI 24873 [many]. Item #23836
