Election of 1848:

A REFUTATION OF ANDREW STEWART'S FABRICATION AGAINST GENERAL LEWIS CASS. A GROSS MISREPRESENTATION OF THE PUBLIC DOCUMENTS, BY ANDREW STEWART AND THE WHIG CENTRAL COMMITTEE AT WASHINGTON, EXPOSED.

Published Under Authority of the National and Jackson Democratic Association Committee, [Washington]: [1848] 16pp, untrimmed and folded, blank top edge chipped. Toned. Good+ or so. Stewart, a Whig, had charged that Cass, the Democrats' 1848 presidential nominee, had picked the taxpayers' pockets while Governor of the Michigan Territory and Superintendent of Indian Affairs. Stewart issued a pamphlet that included Cass's expense accounts and other documents to back up his charges. Defending Cass, this pamphlet accuses the Whigs and Stewart of "making up a gross statement against General Cass and suppressing the truth in regard to the accounts of General Taylor." Taylor, say the Democrats, is guilty of even greater malfeasance than that which has been falsely charged against Cass. Sabin 91633n. 111 Eberstadt 113.
