OCLC: 296196 Rufus Choate (1799 – 1859) was an American lawyer and orator. Beginning in 1823 Choate practiced law for five years, during which time he also served in the Massachusetts House of Representatives (1825–1826) and in the Massachusetts Senate (1827). In 1830 he was elected to Congress as a Whig from Salem. In 1834, before the completion of his second term, he resigned and established himself in the practice of law in Boston. In the Senate, he spoke on the Oregon boundary, in favor of the Fiscal Bank Act, and in opposition to the annexation of Texas. In 1856, he refused to follow most of his former Whig associates into the Republican Party and gave his support to Democrat James Buchanan. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
