PROTECTION AND FREE TRADE. THE QUESTION STATED AND CONSIDERED.

[New York: Greeley & McElrath, 1844]. 16pp, dbd, double columns, caption title [as issued]. Lightly foxed, Good+. The New York Tribune editor was an enthusiastic pro-tariff Whig, who was certain that adoption of the Democrats' free trade policies would bring the country to ruin and enhance the status of the Slave Power. The Democrats' candidate, James K. Polk, "has been a consistent, determined adversary of Protection through his whole public life." Clay, by contrast, is a reliable friend of Protectionism.
