CIRCULAR ADDRESS OF JAMES CLARK, TO HIS CONSTITUENTS. TO THE VOTERS OF THE THIRD CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT OF KENTUCKY, CONSISTING OF THE COUNTIES OF FAYETTE, WOODFORD, AND CLARK. FELLOW CITIZENS:...

[np: 1831]. 42, [2 blanks] pp. Caption title [as issued]. Untrimmed, broken stitching, light wear, Very Good.

Clark was an anti-Jackson Congressman and a prominent figure in Kentucky politics before and after his congressional service from 1825-1831. This pamphlet, his swan song as a Congressman, denounces the Jackson Administration for extravagance, blatant patronage, corruption, efforts to control the press and create a "Government Press," the "hideous...systematic attempts to blacken the reputations of their victims" with "slanders on their fellow men;" and Jackson's disgraceful policies toward the Cherokees, internal improvements, and the Bank of the United States.
