N.p. J. & G.S. Gideon, 1848. Paperback. 8vo. Self-cover. 8pp. Very good. Slightest of age toning. Item #16307

Political intrigue in which this Connecticut representative (1791-1884) defends his actions at the Whig presidential convention against attacks made by another delegate (Blunt), maintaining that he was not a Henry Clay puppet. Indeed not, as he here argues. Not only was he a tried-and-true Zachary Taylor man, but he was one of the first Whig leaders to champion Taylor for president and he went on to direct Taylor's campaign. First edition. SABIN 84452.
