TO MY CONSTITUENTS.

[Washington: 1841]. 12pp. Caption title [as issued], folded folio sheet, uncut, untrimmed. Signed in type at end, "C. Cushing, Washington, 27th September, 1841." Light wear, Very Good.

Cushing, a Massachusetts Whig, advocates a national bank, a pet project of the Whigs ever since Andrew Jackson dismantled it. He warns of an unchecked Party Caucus in Congress, with power "absolute, for all liberty exists by means of checks on despotism,-- abandon to it not only the law-making power, but the appointing power and the money power-- and where stand the Liberties of the People of the United States?- Nominally in the hands of Congress, really in those of an unchecked and untempered party majority of Congress."
