    Description

    [John Quincy Adams]. Speech of John Quincy Adams, of Massachusetts, Upon the Right of the People, Men and Women, to Petition; on the Freedom of Speech and Debate in the House of Representatives of the United States; on the Resolutions of Seven State Legislatures, and the Petitions of More Than One Hundred Thousand Petitioners, Relating to the Annexation of Texas to the Union. Washington: Gales and Seaton, 1838. First edition. 8vo. 131pp. Printed wraps. Front wrap has come loose. Wraps generally soiled and chipped around the edges. Contents sound, albeit with some toning and scattered foxing. Very good condition.

    The legislatures of Vermont, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Ohio, Michigan, New York and Massachusetts were all hostile to the idea of annexing the Republic of Texas. In fact, Massachusetts went so far as to announce they would not recognize Texas should she be admitted to the Union. In his speech, Adams argues in favor of the resolutions.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
