Clay is shown in a bucolic setting, a dog at his feet, cattle watering in the background and a man plowing a field in the distance. Facsimile signature and vignette of residence, below. "Entered according to act" statement by Dodge along bottom edge. A few tears at edges, not extending into graphics, and light age toning.
Large and impressive engraving of the "Farmer of Ashland," which served as a campaign poster in his failed run for the White House in 1844.
