Item #54604 To my constituents [drop title]. Caleb Cushing.

To my constituents [drop title]

[Washington: 1841]. 8vo, pp. 12; self-wrappers, unsewn and unopened as issued, light penciling and a few creases, very good and clean. The primary argument in Cushing's letter is for the balance of power between the executive and legislative. President Tyler had recently vetoed the establishment of the National Bank, and while Cushing states his support for the bank, he warns the Whig legislature that to retaliate by removing veto power from a Whig president would "dissolve the Whig administration" not result in the immediate establishment of the bank, and turn the legislature into an unchecked "executive Congress."
