About This Item

[Bangor?, 1828. Folio broadside, 9-1/4" x 20". Matted, hinged at upper edge. Printed in three full columns. A few old folds, Very Good. The Convention met in Bangor on July 9, 1828. After endorsing candidates for various State offices, the Convention issued and printed its 'Address... to the Electors of the Counties of Somerset and Penobscot', focusing on the upcoming presidential contest. Praising the incumbent, John Quincy Adams, the Address proclaims, "It is sufficient to say of him, that talents of the highest order are joined to uncommon attainments... We would ask you to turn from the rantings of demagogues, the bold fictions of an irresponsible press... Is not our country moving on peacefully and prosperously in the great march of improvement?" Adams's opponent, General Jackson, is unsuited for the presidency: "His character has been formed as a military chieftain... He is rash, headstrong, impetuous and unreflecting-- that he knows no law but his own will." Example after example demonstrates Jackson's unfitness Not in American Imprints, Sabin, Wise & Cronin [Jackson, Adams], or on the online sites of OCLC, AAS, Harvard, Boston Athenaeum, Bowdoin, U Maine as of July 2018.
