Protest Against the Sedition Act published by William Duane in the Philadelphia Aurora, July 14, 1798.

"Advertisement Extraordinary!!!"

Orator Mum takes this very orderly method of announcing to his fellow citizens that a THINKING CLUB will be established in a few days at the sign of the Muzzle in Gag Street. The first subject for cogitation will be: "Ought a Free People to obey laws which violate the constitution they have sworn to support?"

N.B. No member will be permitted to think longer than fifteen minutes.
