Washington DC: Gales and Seaton, 1837.
Softcover. Very Good. 43 pp, disbound. A few spots of light soiling to title page, small stain to upper margin; else clean. First two pages loosening from rest of text block but not detached. Speeches delivered in the months leading up to the passage of the Coinage Act in June 1834. The brief publisher's introduction notes: "Upon reading through the whole of these occasional speeches of Mr. Webster, they appear to treat the subject of currency so clearly, and to state its importance, not then so generally felt as it now is, so fully, and they show so far-sighted and perfect a discernment of the consequences of the measures which Government was at the time pursuing, that is has been thought useful to make a small collection of extracts of these several performances, and to publish them together."
