A "Bout” With A Parson

Subject

Politics and government

Description

Jack Flintlock, from Port Townsend, is scathing in his arguments against A. R, Elder’s [Union Central Committee; U.S. Indian Agent] Republican beliefs. Concerning the Civil War, he says, "...if you mean that the Democratic party ... is arrayed against the Revolutionary fanatics of the South that would strive to upset this Government, and against a similar set of fanatics of the North that would do the same, ... thank Heaven there are yet in our beloved country two million of voters who boldly protest against such ...".

Abstract

This is a letter written by Jack Flintlock [Democrat] in response to an address given by Parson A. R. Elder [Republican] to the “Union men” of Washington Territory. It addresses local and federal government, the Delegate to Congress, local business interests (mining and railroad), and the war.
