[Scott, Winfield]:

LETTERS OF GEN. SCOTT AND SECRETARY MARCY RELATING TO THE MEXICAN WAR.

[Washington: 1848] 16pp, caption title [as issued], printed in double columns. Disbound, Very Good. A Democratic publication designed to discredit the Mexican War service of the Whig Winfield Scott, and to thwart his budding presidential ambitions. He is here portrayed as a vain and incompetent commander concerned only with his place in history, and absorbed in conflict with President Polk, his commander in chief. He is reportedly "shocked and distressed...that an attempt was on foot to create a lieutenant general to take command in the field over me." FIRST EDITION. Haferkorn 61. 534 NUC 0352834 [3]. OCLC 2582226 [8].Not in Sabin.
