Product Overview

1903. Being the letters (nonpartisan) of Hon. William Bradley, Ex-Governor and former veteran of practical politics, written to his friend and protigi Ned, who is still busy carving a career back in the old state. Although the author was not well known in political circles, he must have had some close associates who provided him with a wealth of anecdotal material about Illinois political affairs around the turn of the century. These humorous and revealing stories of political machinations of the era spoof both candidate and voter. Fictitious names have been substituted for the principals, for example, Uncle Cal. Peavey as Governor Altgeld and Mike Boylan as Clarence Darrow.
