17. The Five Cotton States and New York; Or, Remarks upon the Social and Economical Aspects of the Southern Political Crisis (N.p., 1861). (64 p.)
Analysis of constitutional questions in regard to sectional conflict based on economic factors. It ends with these words. “If we are now unhappily on the eve of that greatest of human calamities, a civil war, there cannot be a doubt the South will be pierced in a thousand places; and insurrection, with fire and sword, will be carried into thousands upon thousands of homes that were lately happy—homes that might be still among the happiest on earth, but for the treachery of politicians and the treason of men in high places.” The pamphlet was published in January 1861.
