7 pages, including two tables. The new Secretary of the Treasury tried to make sense of the many property tax systems in use in the Confederate States. He writes, 'The revenue system adopted in the several states is so difficult that it is impossible to reduce it into one form. Even the valuation of lands in some of them is made upon an arbitrary rule, without reference to their real value. Some of the states levy a poll tax on each slave; other value them, and impose an ad valorem tax.' Not in Parrish and Williamham's Conferate Imprints. Crandall, Confederate Imprints, 1178 First edition (first printing). Short tear to margin of first leaf, old ownership stamp on cover, thus very good in self-wrappers. Bookseller Inventory # 78847
