[Raleigh, NC]: North Carolina Standard, 1856. First separate edition (?). Printed broadside, 19 7/8 x 11 3/4 inches, the headline printed in bold capitals. A forceful defense by Hedrick of both his own personal integrity and of the position of preventing the institution of slavery's expansion into the western territories. "Response by Benjamin S. Hedrick, professor at the University of North Carolina, to accusations that he endorsed antislavery views. Hedrick's opinions and conduct subsequently led to his dismissal by the university on October 11, 1856" (OCLC). Not in Hummel (possibly printed in the North). Apparently not in Thornton. OCLC locates five copies (Cornell, New York Historical Society, American Antiquarian Society, Massachusetts Historical Society, Peabody Essex Institute), none of those in North Carolina. A little soiling and some browning to the top margin, else very good. Folded. (8682). Item #61645
