[1], [3 blanks] pp, the last page addressed, with postal cancel and wax seal remnant, to four people in Plainsville PA [which is part of Luzerne County]: Samuel Saylor, Peter Winter, John Black, William Lobar.

This evidently unrecorded Circular is a war cry mobilizing the Democratic troops for the upcoming State elections, "from Governor down to Auditor." The Circular warns, "That the enemy are secretly organizing for a desperate onset on Tuesday, the 12th of October, is manifest...We recommend that active, vigilant, and faithful men be selected, whose duty it shall be to attend the polls early to supply if need be, every Democratic voter with the genuine ticket, and to guard against imposition or deception."
Emphasizing the "formidable attempt of the aristocracy to subdue the Democratic spirit," and the "clandestine manner" of "our wealthy opponents," the nineteen names printed at the bottom urge an all-out effort.
