A scarce anti-Jackson pamphlet in his second campaign for the presidency. If Jackson were elected President, "the liberties of the people would be trampled under foot by this military despot: and the whole country would be transformed into one vast camp, in which military law would alone prevail. Fortunately for us, this man of blood is now disarmed and out of power. Shall we then call the rude old warrior from 'his house in the wilderness'..."
President JQA, by contrast, is a religious man of sterling character. As icing on the cake, the pamphlet recounts Jackson's street fight with Thomas Hart Benton. The pamphlet ends, "LEND THIS TO YOUR NEIGHBOUR."
