ADAMS, JOHN QUINCY
A Letter to the Hon. Harrison Gray Otis a Member of the Senate of Massachusetts, on the Present State of Our National Affairs with Remarks Upon Mr. Pickering's Letter to the Governor of the Commonwealth
Boston, Mass, Published by Oliver and Munroe, 1808. Second Edition. Stitched Pamphlet. 7 1/2" x 4 3/4". 32 pages. Removed and sewn with original stab-holes. Edges trimmed close to text, page numbers 8, 13, 14, 28, 29 shaved. Paper lightly-browned throughout with foxing. Ink marginalia on 11 pages, most likely in contemporary hand. A marginal annotation critical of the work, for example, reads "an almost palpable lie." Text readable. (Sabin 282). This pamphlet by the sixth president of the United States, John Quincy Adams, was written early in his political career. The letter responds to Federalists' outrage over the Chesapeake Affair and the Embargo of 1807. Tensions were high between the French, English, and American navies due to the ongoing Napoleonic wars in Europe. The European nations suspected the American ships of delivering war supplies. John Quincy Adams, himself a Federalist, takes a strong stance in this Letter against prominent Federalist's Harrison Gray Otis and Mr. Pickering complaints against the Embargo and handling of the Chesapeake Affair. The escalating tensions with England during this time set the stage for the War of 1812. Good .
