The Criterion: Which Exhibits Portraits of the Three Candidates, Facts in the Lives of Each, the Platforms of the Three Parties, and the Constitution of the United States (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Criterion: Which Exhibits Portraits of the Three Candidates, Facts in the Lives of Each, the Platforms of the Three Parties, and the Constitution of the United States
In person he is about five feet nine inches in height, of a full but not unwieldy habit, and with a countenance whose natural bene volence is set off by the profusion of silvery hair which clusters round his square and massive forehead. His mind is logical, and his style of speaking is argumentative and close, without the small est pretensions to rhetoric. His language is remarkably clear, and the precision with which he analyses a sophistical statement gives ample evidence that his legal education has not been thrown away. Without the harshness or angularities of Mr. Gradgrind, who was forever calling for facts, Mr. Fillmore seems to feel the same substantial hunger, and never allows himself to be satisfied with a mere theory.
