The abolitionist, paper maker and sometime state legislator here weighs in with a polemic against a report on proposed state improvements to Cape Cod Harbor; Bird points out that the State Commission has no experience in engineering and that the United States Engineer Corps instead stands by ready to do its duty. This copy ex-library, with a small ink stamp at the head of the title but no other evident library marks. OCLC notes but a single copy (at AAS).
