BY HIS EXCELLENCY, JOSEPH A. GILMORE, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF NEW-HAMPSHIRE. A PROCLAMATION.

[Concord: 1864]. Broadside, 8" x 11." A bit of offsetting, Very Good.

Gilmore's Proclamation, dated 17 March 1864, is prompted by President Lincoln's order "for an additional draft of 200,000 men, on the 15th day of April." The Governor reviews New Hampshire's obligations under this call, and announces that an excess of volunteers has rendered "New Hampshire's deficiency very slight." Only 659 men are required. He urges his fellow citizens "to give to their Government no stinted or niggardly support... Let us unite in reiterating the statement that 'There shall never be another draft in the Old Granite State'."
