The nine signers of this rare Circular, members of the Philadelphia Committee of Correspondence, include William Duane, Charles S. Coxe, and Thomas Pettit. The Circular reports to other Jackson Committees on the electoral status of Pennsylvania: the votes have been cast, and all the counties except one report a majority for Jackson.
"Unconnected with, and uninfluenced by, sectional jealousies, or local interests, Pennsylvania has sought to pursue a course, consistent with her own honour, and her duties to the Union: in recommending Andrew Jackson, she did so, from a full conviction, that he was the most meritorious and honest of the candidates." The Circular presents current electoral tallies as "the result of information collected, at the latest dates."
