A Whig Drinking Game

The coon party crossing Cayuga Bridge Novr. 1844. Or the effects of Cassius M. Clay's political tour to western N. York


The following toast by the Hon. John P. Kennedy, of Baltimore, was drank at a dinner given by the New Yorkers to a Delegation who had gone from Baltimore to congratulate the Whigs of the Empire State upon their victory in 1837.

HARRY OF THE WEST.

“Our liveliest pledge
Of hope in fears and dangers, heard so oft,
In worst extremes, and on the perilous edge,
Of battle when it raged, in all assaults
Our surest signal!”


Notes:

The Empire State is New York.


Tomorrow: John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay.
