Description

SIX PAMPHLETS PERTAINING TO THE ELECTION OF 1812 1812-1813
1) Hamilton to the Federalists of the United States on the Choice of a President." (N.Y.: Printed for the author, 1812.) More than likely, this bitter attack on DeWitt Clinton was not written by Alexander Hamilton. 2) "Voice of the Yeomanry! Norfolk County." Signed in print "Thomas B. Adams, Chairman" and dated "Dedham, Oct. 12, 1812." Anti-Federalist, anti-Clinton. Supports Ebenezer Seaver for re-election to Congress. 3-4) Two differing pamphlets, both titled "Norfolk Convention". Some text is the same, but one is significantly longer. Shorter signed in print "Thomas B. Adams, President of the Convention." and is dated "Dedham, August 17, 1812." Printed by H. Mann. Support Madison's war policies. 5) "Address to the Friends of Independence, Peace and Union in the County of Middlesex." Signed in print "James Prescott, Moderator." Anti-Madison. 6) "Avowals of a Republican. By William Charles White." (Worcester: Isaac Sturtevant, 1813.) White was editor of the Worcester National Aegis, but left because Republicans criticized his support for DeWitt Clinton. Here he calls his critics "Jacobins"."
