Box 2
Folder 1 H. M. Brackenridge to Andrew Jackson drafts, June-July 1832

Folders 01-03 incorporate a series of letters mostly addressed to Andrew Jackson. They seem to be drafts of public letters that were eventually published in various newspapers. They were written after H.M. Brackenridge lost his position as judge in West Florida, having been replaced by a political ally of the Jackson administration. The letters contain strong criticisms of the President and his policies. Also included are some of Jackson's replies (copied in H.M. Brackenridge's hand). [Refer to Honeycutt, "The Letters of H.M. and H.H. Brackenridge in the Pittsburgh Archives, 1796-1868", q E353.1 B65A4 1986.]
