Clay is answering a letter from Hammond of 28 Jan. 1827, in which Hammond outlines political events in New York. Clay comments on the condition of the various political parties in N.Y., the recent Senatorial race there, and how its outcome may affect the upcoming presidential race. He mentions DeWitt Clinton, Martin Van Buren and John Quincy Adams. Says "things are going well with me in almost every other direction" and feels that the Jacksonians are heading for "uttered mortification."
