A Selection of Patriotic Addresses, to the President of the United States. Together with the President's Answers

Boston: John W. Folsom, 1798. First Edition. 360 pages, including the printing of a Washington letter, a geographically arranged index, and four pages of subscribers’ names (almost entirely from Massachusetts, most of whom were from Boston); bound without preliminaries in what is apparently early 20th century 3/4 leather; titled on the spine “Patriotic Addresses” and dated “1798.” Top edge gilt; some page staining; a good copy. Mostly concerning the then-current hostile state of affairs with France. This would have been a poor time for the young nation to get into a shooting war with a world power.
