VALEDICTORY OF HENRY CLAY, IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES, THURSDAY, MARCH 31, 1842 [caption title]
Washington: J. & G.S. Gideon, 1842.. Broadside on silk, 19 x 15 inches. Light wear at the edges, some light soiling; small tear minutely affecting a few letters of text. Very good. In a cloth folder. An elegant silk broadside printing the text of Henry Clay's farewell speech, resigning his position in Congress. Clay (1777- 1852) represented Kentucky in the Senate for numerous years, first elected in 1806. His lengthy and important political career included Secretary of State and Speaker of the House, and several presidential bids. He was key in formulating the Missouri Compromise of 1820 and the Compromise of 1850, issues relative to slavery and statehood. Though he states that he is retiring from the Senate "forever," Clay would return to serve a final term from 1849 until his death in 1852.
