Westbrook laments that some "Fellow democrats of the county of Columbia" reject the Democratic platform supporting slavery and the Compromise measures, and refuse to join resolutions of support for Democratic president Franklin Pierce. Reflecting the growing split in that Party over the slavery issue, New York Democrats had put forth two platforms and tickets, each arrayed in opposition to the other. In this rare pamphlet, Westbrook argues angrily that Party regularity should prevail.
