AN ADDRESS ON THE CHARACTER AND SERVICES OF DE WITT CLINTON, DELIVERED AT NASHVILLE, MARCH 11, 1828, AT THE REQUEST OF THE GRAND CHAPTER OF TENNESSEE.

Nashville. 1828. 20pp. Dbd. Minor foxing. Very good. Item #WRCAM53617

A laudatory eulogy for the recently-deceased DeWitt Clinton by his fellow Masons in Nashville. Clinton was a prominent New York politician who served as mayor of New York City, the sixth governor of New York, and also as a United States Senator. His major challenge to James Madison in the 1812 election was decided by fewer than forty electoral votes, and was the best performance in a presidential election by a Federalist-supported candidate since 1800.
