[Albany? 1824]. 8pp. Untrimmed, top edge uncut. Caption title as issued. Stitched, caption title as issued. Scattered spotting, Very Good.

An anti-Jackson pamphlet for his first presidential campaign in 1824. It is absurd to suggest that the "farmer of Tennessee" has anything in common with the sturdy, independent farmers of the North. "The comparison of the occupation of our hardy yeomanry to that of a man whose plantation is worked by slaves and superintended by an overseer, and who himself was formerly a dealer in 'human flesh,' is almost too ridiculous to be seriously noticed."
"The work is a broad burlesque on the 'farmer-boy's' prosperity, particularly during his sojourn as Governor of Florida when his accounts were allowed by Farmer Calhoun" [Eberstadt].
