The present appeal to your patient attention is not, however, altogether of a private nature, but in some degree involves the character and conduct of the President of the United States, and a Senator from the State of Tennessee. I shall, therefore, endeavor by a plain statement of facts, to satisfy the reflecting part of the community, that great injustice has been done both to the President and myself- and if, in exhibiting the proof, it should happen that censure attaches to others, it must result solely from the nature of the transactions which it may be necessary to develope.About one year ago, some of the most distinguished men in this state, who were my political friends, strenuously urged me to become the conductor of a public press this City, and they so far flattered my vanity as to state their belief of my ability to conduct a public journal with credit to myself and benefit to the people. Before acceding to these solicitations, I requested a personal friend of mine to address a letter to the President requesting to know whether it was his intention, (as he had once stated) to nominate me to any office under the government.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
