Letter, 22 July 1841, of J[ohn] C[aldwell] Calhoun, Washington, to
C[harles] Yancey, Buckingham Court House, Va., states that “The tone and sentiments of your Resolutions gave great satisfaction to our friends, and have had a good effect in cheering and sustaining us in the arduous struggle we are engaged in maintaining the liberty and institutions of the country.” Calhoun observed that the results of the session were uncertain and commented on the anticipated failure of Henry Clay’s “bank project.” He acknowledged “the honor confered on me by the Republicans of Buckingham in selecting me as the organ to present their proceedings to the Senate.”
