ADDRESS OF JAMES B. BOWLIN, OF MISSOURI, TO HIS CONSTITUENTS.

[Washington: Printed at the Congressional Globe Office, 1848]. Caption title [as issued], 8pp, printed in double columns. Disbound, Very Good.

A St. Louis lawyer and Democrat, Bowlin blasts the Whigs on a variety of issues: "the financial condition of the country-- a condition brought about by the corruption of their own favorite, worthless, and rotten banking systems"; their "accidental President" John Tyler, who took office after President Harrison's death; for posing as the "heroes of a war which they have opposed bitterly"; their alliance with anti-Catholic Nativists; their continuing entertainment in Congress of "abolitionist petitions." Bowlin urges his constituents to reject the Whig cypher Zachary Taylor, and to vote for the Democrats' presidential candidate, Lewis Cass.
