-  Philip M. Johnson, apparently an old friend of President Jackson, writes from an Ohio River steamboat a few days after the inauguration in Washington to offer his congratulations to the new president. Johnson claims: "I brought with me your inaugural address & it was sought & read with avidity.-- . . . friends were pleased with its conciseness and dignified energy--It manifested to them a determination for fewer words & more action. . . ." He also recommends Judge McLean to President Jackson as deserving a position in his administration.
