About This Item

Portland, Maine: Printed at the Argus Office., 1840. 48pp, disbound. Last leaf with a small hole in blank margin, and small 'withdrawn' rubberstamp in lower margin. Good+.

The writer-- a poet, editor, and literary critic-- denounces the "atrocious calumnies of the American Press (instigated by Henry McIlvaine and John Stille, Jr., Attornies at Law of the Philadelphia Bar)" for its vicious treatment of Eliovich.
McIlvaine and Stille pursued him vindictively for payment of small debts, with "shamefully and wilfully false accusations," abusing legal processes and causing his arrest on bogus charges. Neal defends him in this unusually detailed report.
FIRST EDITION. AI 40-4845 [4]. BAL 14892.
