Philadelphia: W Brotherhead, 1862. Dbd, old institutional rubberstamp Else a clean text and Very Good. 10pp.
An embarrassing relic for the reputation of Brotherhead, who analyzes first the presidential style of Jefferson Davis and finds it wanting: he "lacks talents requisite to become a popular leader." Lincoln too, "a plain, honest, unostentatious man [who] never expected to be drawn from the rural haunts of Springfield," lacks the strength and wisdom of one "who not only follows public opinion, but initiates public policy." Fremont, on the other hand, is "a man of action who will hurt somebody if they do not move on," and has shown the necessary skills to organize and lead an army.
