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.
