In the 1844 election, New York City's voters cast 35% more votes than there were people. Charles P. Brown, to whom this letter was addressed, was on the Board of Assistant Aldermen for New York City from 1843-44, and was foreman of the grand jury investigating the anomaly. He was also assessor and town supervisor of Alabama, New York; and a representative from Genesee County in the General Assembly. Item #27407
