FRAUDS IN LANDS IN CALIFORNIA. DECISION OF THE SECRETARY OF INTERIOR... [wrapper title].

[No place, but probably Washington. 1876]. 10pp. Original printed blue wrappers. Fine. Item #WRCAM44135

A relatively scarce collection of documents protesting the Department of the Interior's decision to overrule the California initiative to limit land sales to 320 acres per person. The federal government is accused of bending to the will of monopolists. Included is the decision of the Secretary of the Interior, resolutions and acts passed by the California legislature, the protest of the state land commission, and a "petition of a thousand citizens of Los Angeles Valley." Though assembled by attorneys in Los Angeles, it seems that this pamphlet was meant to be distributed to legislators in Washington, DC, hence our attribution of the place of publication. COWAN, p.221.
