Excerpt from The Portrait Gallery of the War, Civil, Military, and Naval: A Biographical Record
Residents must first be candidates, and candidates are public property, for all the great purposes of defamation and personal abuse; when one is named for the Presidency, a large section of the press, and a great portion of the people, find a direct interest in the propagation of whatever may tend to render contemptible the person named, and to make him appear unfit for any position of dignity or trust. Hence the present President is known over a great part of the country as the baboon, and respectable writers in Europe have lamented the result of universal suffrage in his election though perhaps no man ever occupied the same position who in himself and in his personal history was more truly representative of all that is best in the American people.
