Boston: T. R. Martin, 1847. Adams was the sixth president of the United States. After serving a single term as president, he was elected to the House of Representatives for nine consecutive terms. While serving in the House, Adams ran an unsuccessful campaign for Governor of Massachusetts in 1833 as a candidate of the Anti-Masonic Party (formed in 1828). Letters on the Masonic Institution was published shortly before Adams’ death in 1848 at the age of 80. Excerpt: “It is now twenty years since there sprung up in the United States an earnest and at times a vehement discussion, of the nature and effect of the bond entered into by those citizens who join the society of Free and Accepted Masons. The excitement which arose in consequence of the disclosures then made, had the effect, at least for a time, if not permanently, to check the further spread of that association. The legislative power of some of the States was invoked, and at last actually interposed, to prevent the administration of extra-judicial oaths, including of course all such as were constantly taken in the Masonic Order. This was the furthest point which the opposition ever reached.” Bound in embossed black cloth, black spine with gilt lettering.
