Descripción

16pp, dbd, foxed at the margins. A bit limp. Good+. A Dayton lawyer and Miami graduate, Schenck would become a Whig and then a Republican Congressman, serving from 1841-1853 and then from 1863-1871. Here, apologizing for lack of preparedness because of "the recent death of an only child," he speaks on "the prevailing evil of the day-- the want of personal independence," that is, "individual character and responsibility is every where merged in the influences which affect the popular mind." The hankering after wealth, office, distinction-- all the unseemly activity by "the shoals of greedy speculators, and the swarms of hungry office holders, that infest the land"-- is more powerful than the individual's "qualities of his heart or the disciplined powers of his mind." This is Schenck's first published speech. FIRST EDITION. AI 46694 [5]. Not in Sabin, Thomson, Eberstadt, Decker. N° de ref. de la librería 9618
