LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED, New York, March 15, 1856 Taking most of the front page is a nice patriotically embellished portrait of the: "American Candidates For President And Vice-President", being "Millard Fillmore Of New York" for President, and "Andrew Jackson Donelson, Of Tennessee" for Vice-President. Page 2 includes a brief textual sketch of "Millard Fillmore, American Candidate For President", and a more detailed one of Andrew Donelson. Great to have the portraits of the famous "Know Nothing" candidates on the ftpg.
