MVB, Notes on Madison's reelection, [c1813]

Connecticut Minor 1813

The day is past, the Elections o'er

and Madison is King once more!

Ye Vagabonds of my land

Cut-Throats & Knaves a patriotic band,

Ye Demagogues lift up your voice.

Moles and Banditti all rejoice.

N. J. Jany 12th. 1813

Mr Masons Speech N. J. Feby 25th. 1813

“The rogues march was played under the window of the man who drew the declaration of Independence.” The man who first took up arms after the fall of Charleston & whose body had ben almost riddled in defence of his Country was a member of Congress & was insulted at the Circus. Randolph was insulted at the Theatre. An other member returning home with his family was insulted & almost mobbed, then a Cabinet minister, probly Gallatin.
