An Address Delivered . . . At The Seventeenth Annual Meeting of Delta Council.
Cleveland, Miss.: Delta State Teachers College Campus, 1952. First edition. The text of a speech by Faulkner, printed with his permission. According to Petersen, Faulkner agreed to speak to the Delta Council, which was composed of 3000 farmers and businessmen from an eighteen-county area, because he needed the $400 speaker's fee to buy a jeep. In the speech, he criticizes federal welfare programs and calls for a return to personal responsibility in the manner of "the old tough durable fathers," much as Emerson had done in the nineteenth century. Bound in the original green wrappers. A few small water spots to the front cover, else a fine copy of a rare Faulkner item. (Item ID: 21709)
(Massey 832; Petersen A33).
