Salt Lake City, UT: Deseret News Co., 1887.
First Edition. Softcover. vii, 98 pp, original sewn self-wrappers. External soiling, paper over spine lacking, but internally clean and sound. Good. Sloan offers a point-by-point rebuttal to accusations against the Mormons made in the House of Representatives, which he says repeat widely held assumptions that “though constantly denied and persistently proven untrue… are still repeated.” In particular, he refutes the notion that Mormons are opponents of religious and civil liberty and defends polygamy as biblically sanctioned and compatible with civilized and moral society. Flake-Draper #7759. Scarce.
