"See I. Bust of Henry Clay. The state of Kentucky. (from the Capitol at Frankfort, Ky.) to a Kentuckian any biographical data of Henry Clay would be superfluous, and while it should scarcely be necessary even to the visitor to Kentucky, some brief facts regarding the distinguished statesman many not prove uninteresting in this connection, and may recall definitely what may not prove uninteresting in this connection, and many recall definitely what may not be well remembered. " Henry Clay was born in 1877 . . . he sent in his resigna- tion, therefore, to take effect September 6, 1852, but died on the 29th day of the June preceding. Mr. Clay was one of the great orators of his time, and his speeches form some of the most stirring passages in the political history of this country."
