A DISCOURSE, DELIVERED AT NEW-HAVEN, FEB. 22, 1800; ON THE CHARACTER OF GEORGE WASHINGTON, ESQ. AT THE REQUEST OF THE CITIZENS. BY...PRESIDENT OF YALE-COLLEGE.

New Haven: Thomas Green and Son, 1800. Disbound. 55, [1 blank] pp, as issued. Title leaf spotted and dusted, otherwise Good+ with some toning and foxing, in later red cloth binding.

Dwight's Discourse, a sketch of Washington's life and an assessment of his character and achievements, is followed by a printing of the Farewell Address at pages 40-55. "His moderation and self government were such that he was always in his own power, and never in the power of any other person. Whatever passions he felt, they rarely appeared. His conduct, opinions, and life, wore unusually the character of mere intellect. Hence he was never found unguarded, or embarrassed; but was always at full liberty to do that, and that only, which expediency and duty demanded."
