Henry Clay at Burlington


An immense crowd waited [Henry Clay's] landing at Lawrenceburg, where he was received by general Dill.  He dines with about 400 people, and was addressed by Judge Test - and, on his health being drunk, he addressed the people for nearly two hours, often interrupted by their plaudits.  He left Lawrenceburg that same evening, in company with a committee from Burlington, Ky., which had crossed the river to receive him, etc.  On reaching the Kentucky shore, he was met by 400 horsemen, who conducted him to Burlington, where he was publicly entertained, and spoke to his fellow citizens at considerable length.
