Philadelphia:: Printed by John Binns,, 1812. First separate edition, taken from Cobbett's The Rush-Light.. Closely trimmed, with the loss of a portion of one line of a note; a bit browned with a faint stain; a very good copy.. 8vo, removed, 16 pages. At the head of the title, "Supplement to the Democratic Press." An address delivered in England in 1800, Cobbett makes a fairly intemperate attack againt most American political figures but reserves admiration for Alexander Hamilton and suggests a closer alliance with Britain. Binns here turns Cobbett's own words against him in the wake of Federalist violence in Baltimore earlier in 1812, adding at the foot of the text, "Lend this to your neighbour as the Confession of a TORY." Binns has also added footnotes and cut sections critical to Washington and to Benjamin Rush. Gaines 56c; American Imprints 25104. (Inventory #: 9181)
