Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Presidential Election: Written for the Benefit of the People of the United States, but Particularly for Those of the State of Kentucky A publication, some time ago, appeared in the Morning Post, at Louisville, under the signature Philo-Henry, relating to the Presidential election, which ascribed to me the authorship of a series of essays, which had been previously published in the Louisville Public Advertiser, under the signature, Philo-Jackson, in which, the writer thought proper to make imputations against me by personal description, and to deduce inferences from them, which were impertinent, vulgar, false, scurrilous and groundless. These calumnies and wilful falsehoods, have induced me to re-publish those essays, in pamphlet form, as the best means of vindication. Those pamphlets have been gratuitously and extensively circulated, through the post office. By such means, I have been able to shew to the readers, and particularly in Kentucky, that they contained nothing for which the writer deserved censure, much less reproach and scurrility. But the most important purpose, in the re-publication, was, that General Jackson might be better known and more justly appreciated. Every person who knew General Jackson, knew also, that he would not take the steps which would be necessary to effect that purpose; but I considered the objects so important to the American people, that even under such discouragements as then existed, I deemed it my duty as a friend to in my country, to make those exertions. I knew that it would be difficult to succeed, in a country, and among a people, where the angry passions had been variously, industriously and wickedly excited, against this patriot, soldier and renowned chieftain. It may be clearly perceived that these essays were mainly devoted to promote the election of General Jackson. But nothing was said against either of the other candidates, even by comparison. hut having been personally assailed, like impulses of duty require, that I should vindicate myself; in doing this. I shall he compelled to bring into view and comparison the demerits of the other candidates. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Book Description Frankfort, Ky.: Printed for the author, ., 1824. 47pp. Dbd. Light dampstains in margins, else very good, untrimmed. Sixth in the Louisville-Frankfort series (1823-24) of the pseudonymous partisan of Andrew Jackson, "Philo-Jackson." The present volume is largely an attack on Henry Clay's support of a federally sponsored system of "internal improvements" (i.e. roads, canals, etc.), part of his "American System." Later that year, despite receiving more votes than any other candidate, Andrew Jackson would fail to win the necessary majority of total electoral votes cast to win the 1824 presidential race; the election went to the House of Representatives where, due in part to Clay's leadership as Speaker, John Quincy Adams won the presidency in 1825.
