Burlington: Chauncey Goodrich, 1846. First edition. 8vo, removed, 32 pages. A trifle foxed and soiled; a very good copy. Item #13360

"In reply to your inquiry as to the causes of Mr. Phelps' conduct, I have only to say, that they are to be found in his excessive jealousy and violence of feelings--not arising from his use of intoxicating liquors, though much aggravated by it. He was, manifestly, under the influence of liquor during the evening of the passage of the tariff." A further ad hominem salvo in one of Vermont's bitterest pamphlet wars. Sabin 81679.
