While Mead admits that there is not much about war to be relished, he does find reasons for thanksgiving--chief among them the likelihood of slavery's demise: "Slavery is at the root of this rebellion; and, if the rebellion is to be crushed at all, slavery must die with it." Small old violet stamp of an institution and small ink autograph accession number at the head of the front wrapper, otherwise no evident library marks.
