AN ADDRESS TO THE CITIZENS OF NEW-HAMPSHIRE, ON THE APPROACHING ELECTION OF STATE OFFICERS. BY A CITIZEN.

[Concord? February 1804]. Caption title as issued. Stitched. 11, [1 blank] pp. Untrimmed, Very Good.

A Jeffersonian plea to defeat the Federalists in upcoming State elections. The choice for Governor is John Langdon, a delegate to the Constitutional Convention and one of New Hampshire's two first U.S. Senators. According to Gaines, the author is one Ladd.
"Strenuous efforts" and a "spirit of enmity" have sought "to bring into disgrace the Republican cause." Langdon has supported those who "have nobly exerted themselves to effect the total dissolution of that baleful union of Church and State... Without the enjoyment of Religious Liberty, there can be no real and permanent political freedom." Federalists, on the other hand, "would have Religion and Politics united, that proud and haughty priests and statesmen might be the only enjoyers of Liberty." The author eloquently supports the Republican cause and President Jefferson.
