Corwin, Thomas:

SPEECH OF MR. CORWIN OF OHIO, IN REPLY TO GENERAL CRARY'S ATTACK ON GENERAL HARRISON. DELIVERED IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES FEBRUARY 15, 1840.

Gales and Seaton, Washington: 1840 16pp, bound in modern plain wrappers. Scattered foxing, Good+. A Whig who would later serve in Congress as a Republican, Corwin became President Lincoln's Minister to Mexico. Here he defends the war record of his Party's 1840 presidential candidate, and discusses "a few historical facts, concerning General Harrison, whom the general from Michigan [Congressman Crary] has pronounced incapable, imbecile, and something worse even than these." His service in the Indian Wars and War of 1812 is recalled in laudatory fashion, and Crary's service ridiculed. FIRST EDITION. AI 40-1686 [5]. Cronin & Wise 51. Sabin 16985n. Not in Miles, Decker, Eberstadt.
