AN ORATION, DELIVERED AT NEW-HAVEN ON THE 7TH OF JULY, A. D. 1801, BEFORE THE SOCIETY OF THE CINCINNATI, FOR THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT, ASSEMBLED TO CELEBRATE THE ANNIVERSARY OF AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE.

Suffield [Conn.]: Edward Gray, 1801. 43pp, disbound, lightly foxed. Very Good.

The Jeffersonian party, giving itself "the title of Republican...in more correct, and definite phraseology, is called Jacobinical." The Federalists "prudently, and justly yielded" to the late presidential election, which marked their defeat. Despite the partisan rhetoric, Dwight provides a detailed perspective on the state of political parties and issues at the turn of the century.
