FOURTH ANNUAL REPORT OF THE AMERICAN PROTESTANT SOCIETY, PRESENTED AT THEIR ANNIVERSARY, HELD ON THURSDAY, MAY 13, 1847, IN THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH, CORNER OF GRAND AND CROSBY-STREETS, N.Y.

New-York: Published at the Depository of the Society, 1847. 39, [1] pp. Stitched. Scattered foxing. Good+.

The Society was devoted to attacking Roman Catholicism, or, as called here, "Popery," and "Romanism." It was founded as the power of the Know-Nothing Movement was growing exponentially, especially in eastern cities to which Irish immigrants had flocked. A particular focus is the Mission to Irish and Portuguese immigrants. This pamphlet includes the Society's' Constitution, list of officers and members, and the treasurer's report.
The Society warns, "Our own country especially now engages the attention and fires the ambition of the hierarchy of Rome." Its first report was issued in 1845.
