48pp. Original printed wrappers. Wrappers lightly toned and chipped. Very good. Thomas E. Watson was a towering figure in Georgia in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. An early advocate of rural post office delivery, Watson became a folk hero to legions of Georgia farmers. He was vehemently anti-Woodrow Wilson, as he writes here: "[Woodrow Wilson] has no American blood in his veins, no American pride in our history, no American love of democratic principles." Further, Watson also reveals a little of his controversial views on race, claiming that if Wilson's League of Nations succeeds in its efforts towards "social equality," then "there will never be another day of peace between the blacks and the whites." He was elected to the U.S. Senate shortly after this speech, but died in office in 1922.
