James Madison was in the US House of Representatives in 1792; he was there on April 9th when the others first voted for the representation usurpation and against the Republic. The pamphlet includes three political essays Madison wrote that year and published in the Philadelphia National Gazette.
The essays are easily found online (Facebook for example) and in the excellent collection James Madison Writings, The Library of America, 1999: pages 517-18 and 530-34. Editing notes include the keeping of old spellings (“encreasing” and “chusing” for example) and the addition of a few footnotes.
*Next Up: The Union 2016 winter series continues Saturday 27 February with part 8, Virginia and Indiana.
