by Cranston, Henry Young (1789-1864).
Washington: December 9,, 1843. Reference: Lande, John Law: the Evolution of his System, #228. Very Good/President John Tyler was expelled from the Whig party not long after taking office in 1841. Cranston, a Whig, opposed the annexation of Texas, which Tyler supported, believing (rightly, as it turned out) that it would precipitate war with Mexico. "The president's message breathes a spirit in relation to Mexico," Cranston writes here, "that tells but too distinctly his feelings and desires in relation to Texas. No man in this, or any other country, ever had the favorable opportunity which was presented to Mr. Tyler to send his name down to posterity covered in glory, and no man could have more effectually trifled with such opportunity than he has..... 1 leaf, 20 x 25 cm.
