3 Everett, Edward. Autograph Manuscript, Unsigned, "The Baltimore Convention".

Two conjugate leaves, dated Boston, April, 1852, about 8 x 10 inches, 3 1/4 pp. in Edward Everett's hand. A call to the citizens of Massachusetts to prepare for the Whig presidential nominating convention to be held in June in Baltimore. Though each of the three Whigs in contention (Millard Fillmore, General Winfield Scott, and Daniel Webster) were very capable, Webster was the best hope of beating the Democratic nominee and accomplishing maintenance of Union, the most important task to confront the country. He admits that Webster's suppport of the Compromise of 1850 had caused many northern Whigs to dissent "from those views, and were bid to turn there thoughts toward General Scott", he reminds Whigs that Scott and applauded the March 7 speech at the time; then he gives several arguments attempting to convince Whigs to return to Webster. Perhaps the draft of a speech or an open letter for newspaper publication. The Whigs nominated General Scott, and he was defeated by the Democrat, Franklin Pierce, in the general election. Everett was a protege of Webster. When Webster died in a few months after the convention Everett replaced him as Secretary of State. As the Whig party continued it's death spiral, many Whigs went to the nascent Republican party. Everett was nominated by the Constitution Union Party in 1860, running on a pro-Union platform, to be vice president. After Lincoln won, Everett soon came around to support him. In Everett's neat, legible hand; three corrections in the text. Folded, a pin hole near the top. In Fine condition.
