KENTUCKY IN THE NATION'S HISTORY Missouri Compromise, i821 Spanish America, 1822 Greece, i823 American System, 1824 Secretary of State, I 825 Panama Instructions, i826 Tariff Compromise, I833 Public Domain, i833-1841 Peace with France Preserved, 1835 Compromise, I850." 1 His was a career far too broad to allow of its being claimed as the peculiar property of any locality; but Ken- tucky may justly rejoice that her soil was the chosen and cherished abode of the " Great Commoner "; and she may justly claim some of the glory of his career, when the at- tempt is made to estimate her part in the nation's history. 1 This medal is now in the possession of Mrs. John Clay of Lexington, to whose courtesy the author is indebted for the pleasure of inspecting it, and numerous other relics of the " Great Commoner." Clay's letter to Daniel Ullman, dated Ashland, September 26, 185I (Col- ton's "Private Correspondence of Henry Clay," pp. 620-622), gives Clay's own view of the subjects which ought to be engraved on the medal. 482
