ADDRESS OF THE DEMOCRATIC STATE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF MASSACHUSETTS TO THE ELECTORS OF THE COMMONWEALTH, AND ESPECIALLY TO ALL TRUE-HEARTED AMERICANS, BY BIRTH OR ADOPTION, WHO IN TIME OF WAR WILL STAND BY THEIR COUNTRY!

[Barnstable]: Printed at the Office of the Barnstable Patriot, [1847]. Folio broadside, folded to 8pp. Uncut, with caption title as issued. Generously margined, light margin spotting, Very Good.

The Committee charges that Massachusetts Whigs, like their despised Federalist ancestors who opposed the War of 1812, disgracefully refuse to support the United States in its War with Mexico. The Whig position is nothing "less than a renewal of the moral treason, out of which grew the Hartford Convention, in the war with Great Britain." Urging a Democratic victory in the upcoming State elections, the Committee claims "OUR COUNTRY FIRST; OUR COUNTRY LAST; OUR COUNTRY ALWAYS."
