Clark was an anti-Jackson Kentucky 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," and "hideous...systematic attempts to blacken the reputations of their victims" with "slanders on their fellow men."
Added to Clark's complaints are Jackson's disgraceful policies toward the Cherokees, internal improvements, and the Bank of the United States.
