A scarce attack on Adams by supporters of Andrew Jackson, his rival in the presidential election of 1828. At the end the author makes the following bold assertions:
"I have established these positions: You was not politically educated in the school of Jefferson. You was not a federalist. You have no attachment to republicans or republican principles. You have made no sacrifices for a country, from whose treasury you have been supported through life. You have not possessed the confidence and attachment of all our presidents. The nation has gained nothing from your experience. Your character is neither honorable nor independent. Your integrity is not unsuspected." SHOEMAKER 32244.
