Summary
"In 1908, the J.B. Lippincott Company...published, in twelve volumes, "The Works of James Buchanan"...Since this excellent publication was issued, I have discovered letters from Mr. Buchanan in the files of local newspapers which do not appear in this work. As these letters throw additional light on the noble character of Pennsylvania's only President, and as they correct some false impressions about him, it seems but just ththat they should be given wider publicity."
