Duane apparently authored a series of these essays during the Jefferson administration. This pamphlet seems different from one of the same title issued in 1805, which had eight essays and was 96pp. long. It was called "Second edition," according to Shaw & Shoemaker, but we cannot find a first, and this present item seems to be completely different anyway. Pro-Democratic work. SABIN 20986. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 12469.
