Pamphlet, lacking any wrappers issued and disbound from a larger work. 49 pp. A piece protesting the Supreme Court's decision regarding claimant laws of Kentucky, particularly those relating to Virginia and its legal claims on land titles based on Kentucky being a former territory of Virginia, seemingly violating the doctrine of states' rights. The authors mention the wars in Kentucky against Native Americans, undertaken to try and settle the land, and in which Virginia did not help, asserting that if they did not help then, they are not entitled to their claims. GOOD condition. Heavy uneven browning. Minor soiling, foxing and creasing. Remains of binding along the spine.
