ADDRESS DELIVERED ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE BIRTH-DAY OF THOMAS PAINE, in the Melodeon Hall, Cincinnati, Ohio, January 29, 1859.

[Cincinnati, OH]: Published by the Executive Committee of the Infidel Society of Cincinnati, O., 1859. 8vo. 22pp. Original printed salmon wrappers. Three holes punched along edge of spine, perhaps to house in notebook, otherwise very good. Denton had become a preacher at sixteen in his native England, lost his teaching job because of his radical beliefs, then emigrated to the United States where he was soon driven from his teaching job because of his abolitionist views. He moved to Ohio with his wife Elizabeth Foote who was also a free thinker and had equally progressive ideas. Late in life they were both absorbed in Spiritualism and Psychometry. We have been unable to find any other record on the Infidel Society of Cincinnati. Item #65880
