Attractive Carrier's Address, printed to commemorate the end of the Mexican American War and proclaim the preservation of American values of freedom, liberty, and might. "And sing the praise of Fredom long/This Western World, on California's Coast,/Has heard our Eagle scream, and seen his host;/On Monteray our banners freely wav,/While Palo Alto numbers many a grave,/Of thos ho follwed Taylor to the fight,/Determined to uphold our country's right./ Glance o'er that bolody strif -- brave me and true,/ Have fallen in the conflict, from our view;/ Yet, there we see the Stars and Stripes remain,/ In beuaty floating, o'er the battle-slain. .
