Carrollton, Ohio: September 30th, 1840. Broadside, 7-1/2" x 12-1/2". Light wear, a small closed tear without affecting text. Addressed in script to William Duane Morgan. Good+ or so.
Ohio Democrats warn hyperbolically that the Whigs [referred to pejoratively here as 'the Federalists'] have conducted the presidential campaign "with a virulence and rancour unprecedented in our history, except during the REIGN OF TERROR." The broadside denounces "nefarious attacks upon the lives of our Editors," and "brutal assaults committed upon the persons of other leading champions of Democracy." Recalling the Revolution's Committees of Safety, with their "devotees of Liberty," the authors insist, "THE CRISIS HAS AGAIN ARRIVED FOR THE CREATION OF SUCH COMMITTEES." An all-out effort is urged on behalf of the Democrats.
