Letter, May 30, 1827, Andrew Jackson, Hermitage, to Richard K. Call, Tallahassee, 3 pp., regarding travels, the disputed codicil to Mr. Kirkman's will, and political matters: ''These slanders has [recoiled?] on the heads of their inventors and I am just informed has prostrated Clay in Ky [but] his supporters will be returned to Congress from Ky. The spirit of party now runs high there in Ky there is up over the whole state candidates for the administration, and against it -- for members of Congress and the state Legislature. I just learned, that poor [Representative] Davy Trimble is prostrate -- that he will be beaten with great ease and by an overwhelming majority. P.S. Where is Col. Gadsden, I have wrote him often without reply . . .'' [Ink bleed-through, tears, and text loss make much of this letter unreadable]
