GENERAL SCOTT’® POLITICAL LETTERS AND PRODUCTIONS.
The following are -all. the political letters and productions of General!
Scott, written’ and printed before his nomination by the last Whig Na-
tional Convention, and since he has been an ‘aspirant for presidential »
honors. They will be useful as matters of reference during the present
campaign. Constituting, as they do, the chart of his political faith, they
deserve to be read and reviewed with care; and coming, ‘as they do,
from the whig candidate for President, they should be care ully preserved.
By whomsoever perused, however, these productions will create no senti-
ment of admiration for the writer. Lacking in good sense, in good taste,
and even in literary accuracy, they alternately exhibit him as vain, domi-
neering, and shallow. e
