Identifier: Mss 841412

Description

Three-page letter from Daniel Webster to Hiram Ketchum, telling him he has seen Webb's two articles and despises them. If he sees anything disrespectful to himself in The American, he will sever his connections with it. He would like to know what the over-wise people think the cabinet ought to have done - leave the Gov't? quit places upon the question of the coercive branches in a Bank Charter?
