About this Item

No place, no publisher, no date (1813). Pamphlet of 24 pp. string bound in original plain grey paper wraps, all edges uncut. Very good, some edge chipping to the wraps and embrowning to the text. Small original ownership signatuer top edge of title page. Six "letters" plus a final section "To The Public" published anonymously by prominent Massachisetts Federalist John Lowell during the War of 1812. Lowell proposed that , in order to save the country, all but the original 13 states (essentially the western states) be separated from the Union arguing that 1) the country was too large to effectively defend itself, 2) the eastern states had no economic need for the western states, 3) that "Divine Providence" supported a separation based on the existance of the Appalachain Mountains, 4) a criticism of the Louisian Purchase as unwise and divisive. Lowell's proposal was more radical than another proposal circulating at the time that New England separate from the rest of the country. Bookseller Inventory # E17309
