Cassius M. Clay Scrapbook, No. 2
Title: Cassius M. Clay Scrapbook, No. 2
Description: This volume contains a variety of news clipping that are primarily associated with politics, and the campaign of 1880 specifically, plus a series of four articles from Dec 1880 that are entitled Railroads; Common Sense and are signed CATO, White Hall, KY. The other clippings range in dates from 1848-1884. There is a printed copy of the Address of the Cuban Charitable Aid Society, 28 Jan 1870 and a handbill "To The Public" that is signed Capt. Split Log and deals with some violent street incident that took place in Lexington, KY in Aug 1845.
The majority of the news clippings appear to be letters to the editor from C.M. Clay that have been published, articles about him or speeches by him that were later published. These clippings have been pasted on the pages of an account book but the nature of the accounts is not clear.
