    Description

    MARTIN VAN BUREN ALS. Van Buren, Martin (1782-1862). Governor of New York, Vice-President under Andrew Jackson, 8th President of the United States. ALS, Kinderhook, November 11, 1842. Writing to Jonathan Hastings, the "Little Magician" and would-be hopeful for the presidential nomination in 1844, writes of the recently concluded state elections. "The results of the great contest in this state, may, although the returns are not all in, be safely [illeg] at 15000 majority for Gov­7 out of the 8 Senators elected this year, more than twice [illeg] of each branch of the Legislature... 3/4 of the members of Congress & the certain re-election of Silas Wright. Is this not carrying the coon with a vengeance?" Excellent.
