    SIGNED BY TWO PRESIDENTS. Madison appoints Edward Tiffin of Ohio Surveyor General of the Public Lands in the States of Ohio, Indiana, and in the Michigan Territory, for a period of four years. A nice combination of two early Presidents. Adams, of course, would win election the following year in the controversial contest decided in the House of Representatives. His principal opponent, Andrew Jackson denounced Adams's victory as the product of a corrupt bargain between Adams and powerful House Speaker Henry Clay, who became Adams's secretary of state.
