[Raleigh? 1823]. 15, [1 blank] pp. Caption title, as issued. Disbound. Scattered light and moderate foxing. Good+.

Signed at the end in type: "November, 1823. CAROLINA." An extremely scarce pro-Calhoun, anti-Crawford piece for the 1824 presidential election. When Calhoun decided to seek the presidency in 1824 "both Crawford and Adams, the acknowledged front-runners, felt betrayed," Crawford because Calhoun had reportedly assured him that he would defer to the older man and wait his turn; and Adams, because Calhoun had said that, "for the good of the country...the next President should come from the North."
