CAUSE AND OURE
INCLUDING A NOTICE OF

D. Fanshaw, Priater.
Entered, according to Act of Congress, in the year 1841, by DAVID NELSON, in the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the Southern District of New York.

Facts drawn from history, science and observation, are here placed in a strong and often startling light, and there is an earnestness—a personality—a warm life's blood of reality running through the whole, which gives to the written argument much of the interest and power of an oral address."
