All Authors / Contributors: M L Weems; George Washington
OCLC Number: 55815074
Notes: Caption title (p. [3]): The philanthropist; or, A good twelve cents worth of political love powder, for the fair daughters and patriotic sons of Virginia.
This appears to be a reissue of the sheets printed by John and James D. Westcott of Alexandria in 1799 (Evans 36695), with a cancel title page printed to exploit Washington's recommendatory letter. The value of the "political love powder" (and the price of the pamphlet?) have increased from twelve to twenty-five cents.
E.E.F. Skeel, in Mason Locke Weems: his works and ways, v. 1, 1929, adduces a first issue of the sheets without title page, and describes the present issue as the second issue. She was not aware of the issue with the Westcott imprint, which was likely the first issue. The Maryland Hist. Soc. copy recorded by Skeel is probably no more than an imperfect copy of this or the "Westcott" issue.
