Excerpt from The Presidential Election: The People of the U. States, but Particularly for Those of the State of the State of Kentucky

To the Free and Independent Voters of the U. States, and particularly to those who are enslaved either by Caucuses, prejudices, or Delusions.

The following pages relate to the war conducted by Gen. Jackson, under the orders of the government, against the Seminole Indians, and to the debates in Congress upon that subject, and have been prepared for publication for some sometime, and are now submitted to public consideration, chiefly to counteract wide-spreading misrepresentations and calumnies, against Gen. Jackson, to shew that he is worthy of the confidence of the people, and also to shew, even in Kentucky, that notwithstanding all previous determinations and prejudices, the people ought to elect him in preference to any other candidate; and if the following demonstrations do not support me in these positions, I shall be willing to admit that I am defective in mental energy, and in such perceptions as would be requisite to promulgate opinions upon a less important subject.

Previous to the aforesaid investigation and debates in Congress, I entertained for Gen. Jackson and for Mr. Clay, each equally respectful opinions; believing that each was equally zealous in their devotion to the welfare of their country - but when one of these persons presented himself to the nation, as the accuser and prosecutor of the other, my inclination as a man, and my duty as a citizen, required that I should prepare my mind for a final decision, by a candid and an impartial examination of facts, and to suffer no impression to be made by prejudice, which truth and reason would not justify. I then had no anticipation that either of these exalted personages would become candidates for the office of President of the United States, and still less, that they would be the rivals of each other. I believed that they had with great zeal and talents, devoted themselves to the service of their country, and deserved each their reward. I never had had an opportunity of investigating or comparing their qualifications and claims for preference. My predictions at that time, were in favor of Mr. Clay, from many causes not necessary to be mentioned.
