[Baton Rouge, 1961. Original printed title wrappers and staples. ii, 18 pp. Fine. With a typed letter, signed by H.M. Aldridge, laid in, to Judge Walter Jones, Editor of 'The Montgomery Lawyer,' September 29, 1961, urging publication of Kernan's Address in that periodical. The introduction is signed in ink and type by H. Payne Brezeale, of the Baton Rouge Bar. He explains that he has arranged for its separate printing in order for Kernan's "remarkable address" to be "made available to others of this present generation." Brezeale and others were charmed by Kernan's Decalogue of American Lawlessness, printed here: any rapist "shall, without trial or hearing of any kind, be instantly put to death," most certainly in a "cruel and unusual" manner. Other sins punishable by death without trial include adultery ["the injured husband" gets to do it], seduction of an innocent girl, traducing "a virtuous woman's character for chastity," etc.OCLC records nine copies as of March 2016.
