Pamphlets (two), 8vo, first pamphlet unbound and uncut signature, 15,  pp; second unbound stitched, two fold out tables, 5,  pp. plus two foldout tables. Some browning, foxing and spotting, first starting to split at a few folds, minor chipping at edges; otherwise about very good. This is an early Washington City imprint, by Samuel Harrison Smith, a friend of Thomas Jefferson. One of the interesting features of these pamphlets is that they include a copy of the4 second census. The numbers show a population of over 5 million, and almost 900,000 slaves. There is also information on the expenses related to building gun ships, ports and the sale of some government assets. Thomas Jefferson (1746-1836) was the third president of the United States. This speech to Congress was delivered toward the end of his first year in office, and was basically a state of the union address. However, because Jefferson didn't want to be viewed as a king, he had a clerk make the presentation. National Archives (Inventory #: 106378)
