Politics and government
"Julian" writes, "It is conceded upon all hands that the South should have the next President, inasmuch as the two last Presidents were from the North." Writing in 1859, "Julian" argues that the Democrats should select a southern man for president on their ticket in 1860, and that R.M.T. Hunter of Virginia should be that man.
This letter to the editor, from a reader at Steilacoom, advocates the nomination of R.M.T. Hunter of Virginia for the United States presidency in 1860, that the South "deserves" this office because the last two presidents were northerners..
"Julian," "a follower of that lamented sage and patriot, John C. Calhoun."
