Writer claims to be President of the United States on the Farmer's ticket and "the American Volunteer, the Colonial President of America, the Grand Martial of the World by virtue of the original warrant in the birth of America". One of two letters begins to describe medicinal plants in Pennsylvania that could cure the "prevailing fever that has carried so many persons out of the world" but then digresses.
