A Question for the Clergy.
-There are no known extant copies. It is described in Liberty as "A four-page tract. Price, 5 cents" in a list that is said to be "in an order corresponding closely to that of the order of publication" which puts it between 1834 and 1844. While there is no doubt that this is an early Spooner work(corresponding with his early interest in religious matters which seemed to wane in later life) the exact year of publication is unknown, it's position on this list is an educated guess.
