ADDRESS OF CHARLES E. HOOKER, ESQ., TO THE MEMORY OF GEN. JOHN A. QUITMAN, IN THE REPRESENTATIVE HALL, NOVEMBER 6, 1858. PRINTED BY ORDER OF THE LEGISLATURE.

Jackson [MS]: 1859. 24pp. Disbound, loosened, lightly to moderately foxed. Upper forecorners rounded, sometimes close to but not affecting text. Laid is a Natchez news obituary of Quitman's death, abrading a few letters of text. About Good+.

Quitman was a Mississippi Southern Rights, pro-Slavery spokesman who had been the State's Governor and U.S. Senator, and a Mexican War Brigadier General. His passing was mourned by all good Slavery men. This rare pamphlet eulogizes him as a man who "had become to the ears and hearts of Mississippians the synonme [sic] for honesty and honor," "treasured in the hearts and affections of our entire people." Hooker recounts his impoverished upbringing, his heroic war service, his "intellectual greatness and patriotic devotion."
A Harvard Law School graduate from South Carolina, Hooker began his professional career in Mississippi as a Jackson attorney. A member of the State House of Representatives, he was a secession commissioner to South Carolina, served in the Confederate Army, and was a U.S. Congressman from 1875-1883.
