[Washington: 1848]. 15pp, disbound, caption title [as issued]. Very Good. Botts, the Virginia Whig, explains his opposition to the nomination of Zachary Taylor who, indeed, was a political cypher with absolutely no record in civil life. Botts's choice for 1848 is the prominent and popular Whig Henry Clay, the Party's candidate in 1844. Botts analyzes the vote in the 1844 election, "when the largest Whig vote ever cast in the State was given for Mr. Clay." Taylor has made it clear that, if nominated, he will not be bound by Whig doctrines. The Party ought not desert its principles; moreover, Clay is stronger than ever. FIRST EDITION. Not in Haynes or Swem. Sabin 6832n. 68 NUC 0683117 [7]. Not in Eberstadt. Item #24390
