1833 February 25. A[bbott] Lawrence ALS; Boston, [Massachusetts].
Henry Clay's bill [Compromise Tariff of 1833]. "I will hold on to my principles, at the expense of my interest. I do not approve of Mr. Clay's scheme, which he knows-I pray you not to consider me as favoring any plan by which the principle of protection is eventually to be given up-the true Policy is not to act upon the tariff but pass the Enforcement bill."
