TO THE REPUBLICAN VOTERS IN THE FIRST CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT OF MAINE.

[Portland? 1884]. Broadside, 5-3/4" x 11-3/4". Printed in two columns separated by a rule. Near Fine.

Chamberlain, the Hero of Gettysburg, and five other members of a Republican Committee in Portland, refuse to vote for Thomas B. Reed for Congress, because he is not a friend of civil service reform, and because he refused to reappoint as Postmaster J.W. Crawford, a partially disabled Civil War veteran, fully qualified for the job. Crawford had been Postmaster for one term, done an excellent job, and should have been reappointed.
Reed was a powerful Congressman, and future Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.
