Carson, Samuel Price, 1798-1838. Correspondence with John Randolph of Roanoke [manuscript], 1833 January 21 and 27.

Correspondence with John Randolph of Roanoke [manuscript], 1833 January 21 and 27.

Carson deplores the bill reported to the Senate that day concerning South Carolina, noting that only Mangum opposed, and that Webster, Wilkins, Freelinghuyson and Grundy support President Jackson; comments on administrative changes with Webster becoming Secretary of State, Forsythe [sic] going to England, and Archer and Stevenson's fate unknown even though the latter once had the support of the "kitchen cabinet." He urges Randolph to make his voice known against the "dangerous movements of this despotic administration." Randolph replies that a friend was afraid to publish Randolph's protest; that he cannot account for Benton's silence and if he does not act soon Missouri will side with the adverse party and "all will be lost." He comments on his poor health noting he is "supported at present entirely by morphia...."
