4. Samuel Nott, Slavery, and the Remedy; Or, Principles and Suggestions for a Remedial Code, 6th ed. (Boston: Crocker & Brewster, 1859). (137, 4 p.)

Defense of slavery and critique of abolitionists. The author suggests that persons with an anti-slavery bias in the North are acting hypocritically when they demand emancipation for slaves in the South but refuse to let freemen immigrate to Northern free states in large numbers. The remedy for this antagonism between the sections is for both sides to work together to insure that slaves are treated fairly and provided with good living conditions. (The collection has a second edition of this monograph in volume 40 [no. 3].)
