[Albany: Albany Atlas, Extra, December, 1846]. 22, [2 blanks] pp. Caption title [as issued]. Printed in double columns, disbound, scattered foxing. Good+.
An examination of the surprising Whig triumph in the just-concluded New York State elections, in five Letters. The author attributes the Whig sweep to a concerted effort by the Anti-Renters against Democratic Governor Silas Wright, who had vigorously suppressed mobs engaging in "organized and armed resistance against the collection of rents" from leasehold estates in the Albany area. "Riotous and insurrectionary assemblages of armed men were almost daily witnessed, and flagrant outrages upon persons and property, were matters of common occurrence, committed with entire impunity." Wright became their target in the 1846 elections.
A variant printing, and the only one recorded in American Imprints and on OCLC, is entitled, 'The Result of the N.Y. State Election...'
