A series of articles by influential Georgia legislator Augustin Smith Clayton on two of the most pressing issues of the day: Georgia's treatment of Indian tribes, and the Bank of the United States. Clayton launches a vigorous defense of Georgia's policy of extending jurisdiction over Indian lands, in the face of criticism from President John Quincy Adams and others across the nation. He opposed the Bank of the United States as monopolistic, oppressive, and foreign controlled. Clayton's articles originally appeared in the COLUMBIAN CENTINEL under the name of "Atticus." This collected printing adds a prefatory address by the author. OCLC locates only nine copies. Scarce. DE RENNE I, p.402. SABIN 99823. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 28518. OCLC 15298659. DAB IV, pp.182-84.
