Description

    Thayer, Russell: A REPLY TO MR. CHARLES INGERSOLL'S 'LETTER TO A FRIEND IN A SLAVE STATE.' Philadelphia: 1862. 26pp, disbound, original printed wrappers, short corner and edge chips. Very Good. Thayer effectively rebuts the argument of Ingersoll who, while recognizing the wrong of secession, nevertheless advises the North to "compromise in some unmentioned manner and upon some impossible terms (for you do not venture to hint at them), with bands of armed insurgents, who have plundered the public property...Men who have set up a mock government, which they make the agent of the despotism." Thayer astutely quotes from the Federalist, observing that Madison and Hamilton both advocated a federal government that had the authority to quell insurrections. FIRST EDITION.
