AUTHORS OF AN ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OF PENNSYLNANIA [sic]...BY THE COMMITTEE OF CORRESPONDENCE, OF PHILADELPHIA, APPOINTED BY A REPUBLICAN CONVENTION, HELD AT HARRISBURG, JANUARY 8, 1828.

Philadelphia: 1828. 88pp, disbound, lightly soiled and foxed. Good+. Pennsylvania supporters of Andrew Jackson attack John Quincy Adams and his Philadelphia backers, in the grudge fight between the two candidates. This Letter reviews the 1824 struggle, arguing that Adams and the treacherous Henry Clay stole the Presidency that year from Jackson; that Jackson's qualifications for office exceed those of virtually any other President; and that Adams's years of service have brought the country inexpressible misery.
