Description: In this printed speech Smith writes in part: “That the advantages which were confidently expected from the restoration of peace have not been realized in their full extent, is indeed a subject of regret, but not of despondency. The embarrassments arising from a limited commerce, and the too successful competition of foreign vessels… from the depressed state of manufacturing employments, and the unequal and restricted operations of the monied institutions of the country, are evils to which no adequate remedies can be instantly applied…” Smith also addresses the reorganization of the militia, as well as, the “law which defines and punishes forgery…”.
