About This Item

Philadelphia: the committee, 1851. Paperback. Very Good. 8 p.; 22 cm. Disbound from a volume of unrelated 19th-century pamphlets. "4" in ink at upper right-hand corner of title page. Caption title. The address was put together by a committee chaired by William M. Meredith. The address is followed by a statement by Daniel L. Miller, Jr., president of the Sunbury and Erie Railroad Company, about the railroad proposed to connect Sunbury to Erie. The Sunbury and Erie Railroad Company had been chartered in 1837, but did not begin construction until 1852, when the state passed enabling legislation. No date of publication; based on information in the address, 1851 is the most likely date. William Morris Meredith (1799-1873) was a lawyer in Philadelphia; he served as Secretary of the Treasury under President Zachary Taylor in 1849 and 1850. Very scarce. In Very Good Condition: disbound; minor foxing along gutter; otherwise, clean and tight.
