SPEECH OF THE HON. DANIEL WEBSTER, in the Senate of the United States, on the President's Veto of the Bank Bill, July 11, 1932.

Boston, (MA): J. E. Hinckley and Co., Printers, 1832. One of a number of 1832 printings of this Webster speech. 8vo. 32 pp. President Andrew Jackson vetoed the early re-chartering of the Second Bank of the United States, questioning pernicious effects on the economy and its constitutionality; the bank might still have been be re-chartered through its expiration date in 1836 but Jackson set out to reduce its influence following his re-election by depositing federal funds in various state banks and the bank's charter expired in 1836. Webster strongly supported the bank and its policies and, along with Henry Clay, advocated the early re-chartering (Webster was also a profitable client and carried loans through the bank). Very good. Disbound pamphlet (a little foxing and age-toning). (10750). Item #64405

Price: $50.00
