|Five documents to John Langdon regarding his nomination as vice president
|Albert Gallatin to John Langdon urging Landon to accept the nomination of vice president
|21 May 1812
|Gallatin, Albert (1761-1849)
|Urges Langdon to accept the nomination for vice president, claiming that "Your not declining the nomination to the vice presidency is, in my opinion, essential to Union, Republicanism and the public welfare." Heaps praise on Langdon. Earnestly exhorts him to take the nomination for the public good and to avert the creation of factions in the party, "which will lead to toryism and perhaps worse consequences." Langdon declined the nomination.
