Number of Pages:

Postmaster General James Campbell writes to Reah Frazer, an attorney in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, about various political issues and James Buchanan as a possible candidate for a future Presidential election. "I should like very much to go up to Lancaster and see Mr. Buchanan" and "have a talk with him," as Campbell notes. "I have always entertained the highest respect and have had for years my eye steadily fixed upon [Buchanan] as the master spirit who was to redeem the reputation of Pennsylvania" through, as Campbell explains, "his elevation to the Presidency."
