Description and Holding Information
1769-12-06, Against Mr. Livingston's speech
Pamphlet of "Observations on Mr. Justice Livingston"s Address to the [New York] House of Assembly, in support of his right to a seat." (December 6,
1769). The speaker, "A citizen" argued that Livingston should not be allowed to be seated, because the act forbidding judges to be a representative was
wise and virtuous. Specifically, the author asserted that a judge's dignity would be lessened if constituents saw him doing both positions. See
LLMC #20781 for the contrary position. Of note, Judge Livingston was a member of the Stamp Act Congress of 1765 and was a leader in his refusal to
compel the use of stamps. (Digitized from a microfilm copy of title originally held by the New York Historical Society Library).
