The modern Democratic creed! : letter of John Brodhead, Democratic candidate for City Treasurer : Philadelphia, March 7th, 1860. Mr. Jefferson Davis. My dear sir:---Can you tell me if General Larman is likely to remain much longer in Nicaragua? I should like to go to that country and help open it to civilization and niggers. I could get strong recommendations from the president's present friends in Pennsylvania for the place, were the mission vacant, and I think I would prove a live minister. I am tired of being a white slave at the North, and long for a home in the sunny South. Please let me hear from you when you have leisure. Mrs. Brodhead joins me in sending kind remembrances to Mrs. Davis and yourself.
