S. Senator from 1841-45. This speech dates before his political career began in 1808 with his election to the Massachusetts State House of Representatives. The copyright page denotes that at a July 4, 1805 meeting of the Federalists of the Town of Northampton, the Committee of Arrangement unanimously voted to "wait on Mr. Isaac C. Bates, and thank him for the elegant and spirited Oration...and to request of him a Copy for the press." Many footnotes throughout, some expanding upon political messages, some translating Latin phrases. Contains passionate abolitionist views, describing irony of Southern State leaders being viewed as "...GODS OF FREEDOM, while their slaves are bleeding at their feet." (p. 23). Also bemoans Louisiana Purchase and federal debt. No copies currently offered for sale in the trade. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
