The Advocate of Peace and Universal Brotherhood. Vol. 1 no. 7 (July, 1846)

Worcester, MA: Elihu Burritt, 1846. pp. 153-176, wraps bound with thread, pages remain uncut at the top; front cover has a faded area, otherwise mild handling wear and foxing.

When Burritt, the "Learned Blacksmith," took over The Advocate of Peace, the publication of the American Peace Society, he renamed it The Advocate of Peace and Universal Brotherhood, and it took on a more radical pacifist position during the short tenure of his editorship. Contents of this issue include W.W. Story's poem "Plea for Peace," J.P. Blanchard writing in opposition to the Mexican War, Eliza Cook's poem "Harvest Song," a round-up of news about peace movements around the world, and more.
