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)
