Henry Clay

Marietta Intelligencer, May 23, 1844

Henry Clay passed Marietta on his way home on Friday morning last, on the steamer Little Pike.  The boat stopped here an hour or more, and many of the citizens of Marietta and Harmar embraced this opportunity of paying their respects to him.

He appeared to be in fine health, and (as well he may) in excellent spirits.

Hon. Thomas Ewing was in company with Mr. Clay.

The citizens of Marietta and Harmar who had the pleasure of a trip to Parkersburg on Friday last, in company with Henry Clay, desire publicly to express their obligations to the officers of that excellent boat, The Little Pike, for the attentions shown them on that excursion.  No charge was made for our passage, and we were otherwise most hospitably entertained.
