Madison, James]
THE REPUBLICAN CRISIS: OR, AN EXPOSITION OF THE POLITICAL JESUITISM OF JAMES MADISON, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. BY AN OBSERVANT CITIZEN OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA
Printed for the Author, Alexandria, 1812. 56pp, but without the half title. Disbound. Untrimmed. Very Good. Supporting De Witt Clinton for President, the author attacks "the crooked and weak policy of Mr. Madison's administration" for abandoning Jeffersonian principles, and assails the incumbent's "weak and jealous disposition." Madison's "political turpitude and depravity" are set forth in detail. He "was never a sincere friend to the republican cause." Indeed, he was "a bosom friend of the late Alexander Hamilton," and married "Mrs. Pain, a lady of tory principles, now Mrs. Madison; such is the effect of female influence on men of weak minds!" During the Convention of 1787 he supported, not State Rights, but "a consolidated union." As Jefferson's Secretary of State, he retained key Federalists who "betrayed.the wise policy and plans of Mr. Jefferson." Despite English "atrocities," he placed England and France on an equal "footing in their relations with the United States." His "frensied ambition" has caused him to resort to such "pusillanimous subterfuges" to secure his re-election that it "sickens the mind." FIRST EDITION. Howes M201. Haynes 15033. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: David M. Lesser, ABAA [Woodbridge, CT, U.S.A.]
