Adams, John Quincy, 1767-1848.
     Address of John Quincy Adams, to his Constituents of the Twelfth Congressional District. Delivered at Braintree, September 17, 1842.
[n.p.]. [1842]
1404A; Another edition [of entry No. 1404]. [40 p. 25 cm. Stitched. Caption title. The Boston edition of Adams's Braintree speech is preceded by an account of his reception by his constituents and is followed by the usual resolutions and an ode written by Rev. Mr. Pierpont. The 40-page edition, without imprint, only gives the speech. In this lengthy review of his congressional career, which sparkles with denunciations of Jackson, Van Buren, Tyler, and the South, Adams has much to say on Texas and again charges that the South is plotting the dismemberment of Mexico and the acquisition of an immense portion of her territories. Dr. Barker cites and quotes from this Address in support of his observation that abolitionist sentiment rather than opposition to territorial expansion was the chief obstacle to annexation ("The Annexation of Texas," Southwestern Historical Quarterly, July, 1946. Vol. L, p. 60-61). For a pamphlet published the same year giving extracts from the Address, see entry No. 1405.; Locations: MH. NN. TxU. TWS.
