Letters, 1819-1832.

Letters sent to John Brazer Davis, Boston lawyer, editor of the Boston Patriot, and advocate for the National Republican Party. Most of the letters concern state and national politics, including the election of John Quincy Adams in 1824 and his defeat by Andrew Jackson in 1828; also Massachusetts elections from 1828 to 1831, including the campaign of antimasonic candidate Samuel Lathrop against National Republican Governor Levi Lincoln in 1831. The campaigns of Daniel Webster for U.S. Senate and Henry Clay for President are also discussed. Correspondents include Lincoln, Joseph Story, Congressman John Bailey, publishers Isaac Munroe and Samuel Bowles, and many prominent Mass. politicians. Letters from John Hills briefly describe events in the War of Independence in Peru; a letter from editor Sarah Josepha Buell Hale requests Davis's help in the campaign for a Bunker Hill monument.
