1824 · New York
Political "cabals," "King Caucus," and Clinton's other enemies sought to deny him the gubernatorial nomination in 1824, with arguments and speeches "in language of pointed reprehension." Here, "the friends of Mr. Clinton" publish speeches of Messrs Haines and Gerrit Smith, with other documentation "illustrating the character of this great statesman," denouncing the caucus system, and exposing the dishonorable intrigues of the opposition.
This work presents an illuminating picture of bitter, no-holds-barred politics in the State of New York.
