Abstract:

In a letter, 1857 March 25, Hunter, Lloyds, Essex County, Va., writes to Roger Atkinson Pryor concerning Pryor's pro-Southern newspaper, "The South," and the Tariff of 1857.

Hunter desires to increase the paper's circulation, mentions Senator Clement Claiborne Clay's offer to help and asks Pryor's aid in re-electing Clay. He emphasizes the importance of newspapers in the "great battle for state rights and Southern rights."

He also outlines his position on the tariff and mentions President Pierce's veto of Dorothea Dix's bill concerning use of tax revenue for care of the insane.

In an [1846] February 26 letter from Washington, William Schouler, editor of the "Ohio State Journal" writes to an unnamed recipient over the Tariff of 1846. He relays a report that Hunter will kill the current version of the bill in the Senate and reports on activities of Senator Simon Cameron and Treasury Secretary Robert J. Walker.
