Yet More Filler from the Song Book

A Boxing Match, or, another bloody nose for John Bull


Mr. Madison’s estimate of Mr. Clay. — He invited him repeatedly into his Cabinet, and offered him the mission to Russia, then deemed very important. He even proposed to put Mr. Clay at the head of the army; and was only deterred from sending of his name to the Senate for the appointment in General in Chief, by the advice that he could not be spared from the public councils.


Notes:

Henry Clay was one of the original War Hawks, who wanted a war with Great Britain.
