About this Item

A wall posting of the Democratic-Republican party supporting incumbent DeWitt Clinton for Governor of New York in the 1820 elections against Vice-President Daniel D. Tompkins, the candidate of the Tammany-Virginia wing of the party. The document is a direct reply to the anti-Clinton Federal Bucktail Address (signed on 14 April 1820) and its signatories, a group of 40 men known as the "high-minded Federalists." Named members include John Duer and Rufus King. Of particular interest is the author's contention that the group misrepresented the nature of their opposition to the War of 1812. Signed in type: "No Time Server. April 19th, 1820." Several lines of text at the base of the document are headed "The Seminole Federalists," an unflattering soubriquet given to the faction of Federalists who opposed the Clinton administration. This section is signed in type, "Red-Jacket." Folio (34 cm, 12.75"). [1] f. (verso blank). Not in Shoemaker. As issued, with some later folds. Inch-long tear within first line of text, costing one word and portions of two or three letters, without affecting sense. Tear above center fold snaking five lines of text, touching letters from seven words without costing any text. Thumbnail-sized chip in center, affecting portions of three lines and costing several complete words but little sense. Lightly foxed. Bookseller Inventory # 24635
