PREFACE.

[ocr errors][merged small]

This, the latest and thoroughly revised and greatly enlarged edition of “The National Conventions and Platforms of All Political Parties,” has been made as complete and reliable as possible; and to this end all available records have been searched for useful and confirmatory information; but some things connected with the earlier presidential campaigns are lost, so far as either official or newspaper record of them is concerned.

Into this little volume have been gathered such of the most important things referring to presidential campaigns as are likely to prove needful to public men in their political work. Very many of the names and incidents recited are not matters of public history, but are culled from the almost forgotten things connected with national conventions and elections.

An Appendix of useful information and an exhaustive Index add greatly to the value of the work.

Confident that it will prove helpful to students of political history and to all others desiring information on public questions, it is submitted to the consideration of the public.

T. H. McK. 7 8 3 86
