Three booklets containing 1808 speeches of Senators Timothy Pickering (1) and James Lloyd (2) in favor of repealing the Embargo Act of 1807, in which Congress enacted a general embargo against the United Kingdom and France during the Napoleonic Wars (1803-1815) in response to British plundering of American vessels, their cargo seized as contraband and their crews forcefully impressed into the service of the British Royal Navy. A booklet, Mr. Pickering's Speech in the Senate of the U. States, December 1, 1808. When the resolution offered by Mr. Hillhouse, to repeal the Embargo Acts, remained under discussion., 12pp., 205 x 127 mm. (8 x 5 in.), disbound but attached at spine remnants. Mr. Pickering suggests that there is no evidence that Great Britain was the aggressor in the violations of US neutrality, suggesting that designation belongs to the French. Two booklets, Mr. Lloyd's Speeches In the Senate of the United States, on Mr. Hillhouse's Resolution to Repeal the Embargo Laws: November 21, 1808., 16pp., 205 x 127 mm. (8 x 5 in.), disbound but attached at spine remnants. Mr. Lloyd suggests that the potential for commerce outweighs any grudges the United States has towards France and Great Britain, offering his views on the differences between France and Great Britain: "...the one, instigated by a lawless thirst of universal domination, is seeking to extend an iron-handed, merciless despotism over every region of the globe; while the other is fighting for her natale solum, for the preservation of her liberties, and probably for her very existence..." Timothy Pickering (1745-1829) Massachusetts politician who served as the third Secretary of State from 1795-1800 under Presidents Washington and Adams, as the second U.S. Secretary of War in 1795 under President Washington, as the second U.S. Postmaster General deom 1791-1795 under President Washington, as a U.S. Senator from Massachusetts from 1803-1811, and as a Congressman from Massachusetts from 1813-1817. He attained the rank of Captain in the Essex County Militia during the American Revolution, and penned a plan for drilling militias that replaced Baron von Steuben's Regulations for the Order and Discipline of the Troops of the United States in the Continental Army's drill book. James Lloyd (1745-1820) United States Senator from Maryland from 1797-1800. He introduced the Sedition Act of 1798. Soiling, toning, paper loss to the bottom right on Pickering speech as shown, overall very good condition. The three (3) together.
