calumniating signal books, and telegraphic dispatches


Passages from pages 61, 66 and 160, Richard Ferguson his Abaddon’s Steam Engine, calumny, delineated: being an attempt to stop its deleterious results on society, the church, and state, called bitterness… by a lover of mercy rejoicing over judgment.  (Philadelphia, 1817) *.
