Present here are a series of addresses to the citizenry from the Philadelphia Society for the Promotion of National Industry (nos. I-XIII and I of the "New Series"). With the exception of nos. XII and XIII, which were by Dr. Samuel Jackson, these important essays all flow from the creative and cantankerous genius of Mathew Carey. They address then-pressing topics: tariffs, protectionism, development of domestic industry, and European foreign policy.
