Haverhill, Mass.:: Printed by William B. Allen, for Subscribers,, 1809. First edition.. Aside from the lack of stitching and some mild dust soiling, a very good copy.. 8vo, unbound (old stab holes, stitching perished), 17 pages, untrimmed. An anti-Jefferson and anti-Embargo attack on the Congregational minister Aiken, with much on party factionalism and the questionable merit of a clergyman's support of the heterodox Jefferson. Includes a lament that Alexander Hamilton is not present to lead the Federalist factions--or otherwise "could his departed spirit once again descend upon our earth, to illumine and to cheer the desponding darkness that now envelopes us, could the blaze of his wonted glory once more irradiate our land, and consume the traitorous hearts of our domestic enemies." Ink Haverhill signature dated 1809 at the head of the title page. American Imprints 16861. (Inventory #: 11237)
