    Boston: Printed by C. Stfbbins [sic, Stebbins], 1812. Octavo, stitched, in self wrappers, edges untrimmed. pp 78, [2, blank]. The title continues: "and the establishment of an immense standing army of guards and spies, under the name of a local volunteer force .....By a New England Farmer...". Spine nearly repaired with clear archival paper tape; paper tanned; tan soil spots to last three leaves; some light foxing in text; else a VG copy. >>> John Lowell, Jr., was a member of the Federalist Party and a leading member of the "Essex Junto", a political group from Essex County, Massachusetts active during the Revolution. During the War of 1812, they called for a new union of the the original thirteen states which would entail the succession of those states from a union which was adding territory in the west. A wealthy partrician from Roxbury, Lowell led the New England opposition to the War of 1812. In this and his other extreme pamphlet, President James Madison was accused of refusing to seek a peaceful settlement with Great Britain, and he wrote in favour of impressment of seamen as a right of long standing, not a cause for war. Arguing against the invasion of Canada [Madison had already sent three expeditions, all of which, as well as all subsequent and all former American invasions, ultimately failed.], he wrote "but is Canada necessary to Great-Britain? No: is it as important to her as her own seamen? No; then she will never give up to our demand of protecting her own native subjects, even if we take Canada." He goes on to say that Madison and his supporters "have so often promised us, the barren provinces of two Canadas, as a compensation for the loss or our commerce, our blood, and our treasure" and asks "will those men, who proposed and discussed a bill, for the occupation and annexation of the Canadas, in the United States, pretend, that those provinces will invade us?" He thought that the British were not in a strong enough position to defend Canada (they weren't, particularly, but with the help of the militia and some Indians, not to mention some incompentance on the part of the American officers, they sent the invaders back home with fewer men]. Edward Everett wrote of Lowell "He possessed colloquial powers of the highest order and a flow of unstudied eloquence never surpassed, and rarely, as with him, united with the command of an accurate, elegant, and logical pen." Despite the probable truth of this judgment, John Lowell was one of the founders of the Massachusetts General Hospital, a benefactor of the Boston Atheneum, for many years the President of the Massachusetts Agriculture Society [he was an avid and distinguished agriculturalist and botanist], and from 1810-28 a member of the Harvard corporation.
