Columbus: Scott & Wright, Printers, 1836. 15, [1]pp. Loosened and folded. Good+.

The crowd yelled, "A Speech from Douglas- we can't adjourn till we hear from Old Dick." Uninhibited in his enthusiasms, Douglas warns of the danger of Jacksonian Despotism, and attacks Vice-President Van Buren, "a mean selfish, lick-spittle fondling." He lauds the character and military and civil career of William Henry Harrison, "of the city of Benjamin, of the house of Jefferson, and tribe of Hancock;" and reviews the life of his distinguished father, Benjamin Harrison.
