[Washington: Buell & Blanchard, 1852]. 8pp, caption title (as issued). Disbound with light to moderate foxing. Good+.
All the copies that Miles examined were, like this copy, disbound. The pamphlet's purpose is to demonstrate Pierce's consistent alliance, during his entire political career, with the pro-slavery South. Pierce supported the infamous Gag Rule, prohibiting discussion in Congress of anti-slavery petitions, and has always opposed efforts to restrict slavery.
