FIRST REFLECTIONS ON READING THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE TO CONGRESS, OF DECEMBER 7, 1830...PUBLISHED ORIGINALLY IN THE NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER.

Washington: 1831. 15pp, uncut and untrimmed, somewhat soiled. Original printed self-wrappers. Good+. The anonymous Hambden lends qualified support to President Jackson's assertion that Congress may constitutionally levy a protective tariff in order to foster the development of domestic industry. He scolds the South's devotion to free trade, "which can no more exist as a general principle than universal and perpetual peace." He counsels that we "adhere to the Union as the rock of our safety," a warning unheeded by South Carolina when, soon thereafter, it sought to nullify the operation of the tariff within its borders. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 29932. 136 Eberstadt 330. Not in Wise & Cronin. AI 7419 [4]. Item #6070
