Speech of Mr. Barton, of Missouri, in Reply to Mr. White, of Tennessee, Upon the Appropriation Bill. In the Senate of the United States, March 6, 1830.


Speech of U.S. Senator David Barton (1783–1837) of Missouri concerning debate on an appropriation bill.

Barton takes his colleague, Senator Hugh L. White of Tennessee, to task. It seems White omitted or altered statements he made in the Senate before they appeared in the newspaper. These changes embarrassed Barton who had replied to what White actually said, not what was reported in the newspaper. Barton accuses White of “moral forgery” and even mentions “his Satanic Majesty” in connection with White.
