This educational pamphlet from 1845 is the seventh from a series on civics made for the Catholic schools in the Pennsylvania area. It breaks down the structure of the US government on the state level, looking mostly at the rights and obligations of the state or territory under the federal government. Each section includes comprehension questions for school children. It is unclear how many pamphlets were originally part of the wider series. Although it does not appear to have anything to do with Catholic dogma, it does have the official nihil obstat and imprimatur from the Archbishop of Philadelphia.
