Author Name    Holcomb, C. P.

Title   SPEECH OF MR. C. P. HOLCOMB OF PHILADELPHIA, DELIVERED IN THE HALL OF REPRESENTATIVES OF PENNSYLVANIA.

Publisher   Harrisburg 1834

Seller ID   4371341253

12pp. Removed. Pamphlet (t.p. loose, expected foxing). Holcomb opposes both Stevens' request for subpoena power & an amendment for making the testimony voluntary! "I am opposed to this amendment. I am opposed to the orig. resolution. I am opposed to the whole proceeding, to its objects which are political, selfish & bad; to the means it proposes for the accomplishment of those objects…" As a non-Mason who would not join the Anti-Masonic party, Holcomb stood up & defended friends, both Masons & non-Masons. A stirring example of old-time oratory, all the more to be desired because OCLC reports no libs w/copies. Law. (4371341253)
