Description: 4 pages (front and back) each measuring 9.75 x 7.75 inches, Nunda (NY), September 11, no year, circa 1846. The writer of this letter refers to the events leading up to the Mexican War, which was precipitated by actions of President Polk, in part: "George M. Dallas played Judas; and James K. Polk is a mere tool in the hands of John C. Calhoun & Company. I do not pity the Pennsylvanians so much, they were told better by such men as Webster, and others. The United States reach no farther north than Mason's and Dixon's line, if we might judge by the legislation of James K. Polk. He is valorous against an important foe, but as obsequious as a spaniel, when 'Queen Victoria' speaks. The Mexican War is a second edition of the slave hunt in Florida [refers to the 1st Seminole War, which was actually directed in part against runaway slaves]. $100,000,000 will hardly suffice to defray the expense of the War of Conquest..." Two-inch tear along one of the folds; several small holes throughout the text. Good condition.

I have to congratulate you and Argosy Book store. I have received "Fêtes Galantes" very promptly on Thursday and had no tax to pay (very rare 'cause French customs are very greedy when parcels arrived from the States). Love to do business with you ! Best regards - M.A.
