Charleston: 1876. 28, pp. Original printed wrappers, stitched. First and last few leaves stained in upper top quadrant, else clean. Good or so. At the first post-War meeting of the Society, Rivers reflects on the "disastrous period which has intervened." Today all the old issues "have subsided as though they had been ephemeral in their nature...The contention for the supremacy of the general government has ended, if not in a total eclipse of State sovereignty with its right of secession, at least in the silence of its advocates and an acquiescence in the future unity of the Republic."
