Woodward in 1860 & 1863.

N.p. N.p., n.y., [probably 1863]. Paperback. 8vo. Wrappers. 7pp. Very good. Minor binding traces, else tight and nice. Presumably a Republican attack on the then-gubernatorial candidate, a Pennsylvania Supreme Court justice. "...the creed which Judge Woodward's party has adopted, is servile, unpatriotic and disorganizing... the Judge's position, in regard to the great issues now before the country, is faithless, inconsistent, and wholly delusive." The writer then critiques Woodward's famed 1860 speech, criticizing "The Falseness of its Statements in regard to the Abolition of Slavery by the North," "Judge Woodward's Bible Views of Slavery" and "The Right of Secession, as Claimed by Judge Woodward." Woodward critic of course does not let him forget his infamous statement that "We must reassert the rights of the slave-holder." Not in Sabin. Interesting and unusual. Item #13646
