His appointment was made on the recommendation of Lord Beaverbrook, who also recommended him as Deputy Minister of the Department at the end of the war. He refused a knighthood in 1918.

19 Hammond, Lamont BURKE'S SPEECH ON CONCILIATION WITH AMERICA
Ginn & Co. 1897 First Edition; First Impression Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
Green cover some writing inside otherwise very good. Concerning the imperial controversy at the time Burke (Edmund) argued that the British government had acted in a both unwise and inconsistent manner. Again, Burke claimed that Britain's way of dealing with the colony question was strictly legal and he urged that also "claims of circumstance, utility, and moral principle should be considered, as well as precedent"(...432). In other words, if the British, persistently clinging to their narrow legalism, were not to clash with the ideas and opinions of the colonists on these matters, they would have to offer more respect and regard for the colonies' cause. Burke called for "legislative reason" in two of his parliamentary speeches on the subject; On American Taxation (1774) and On Moving His Resolutions for Conciliation With America (1775). However, British imperial policy in the controversy would continue to ignore these questions. ; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 152 pages

Uneven cut paper has been rebound using marbled paper boards, gold on black title, Parchment end papers with buffered and restored text block. Very handsome presentation.

And in the ninth month, called September, 1741, Samuel Hopwood was with her, and received the relation much to the same purpose; at which time he saw the child (then grown a young women) who was sucking at her brest when she was carried into captivity."
