ANNUAL GREETING OF THE CARRIER TO THE PATRONS OF THE SCHENECTADY DEMOCRAT AND REFLECTOR, JANUARY 1, 1862.

[Schenectady: 1861]. Folio broadside, 10-5/8" x 20." Text surrounded by decorative border. Two columns, separated by a rule. Very Good.

"Old time keeps on at steady pace," is the first line of this long poem deploring "The blight that's fall'n upon this Nation."
"But in vain did Statesmen strive/ To quell the rage in Southern hive." The "base demand, in haughty tone," of "traitors" and "treacherous foes" caused us "To rally round the good old flag." The character "Old Abolition" is accused also of "trait'rous ways." His "hoary head and serpent eyes / Sees only 'niggers' on the rise, / With missiles in their brawny hands / To crush the Whites in Southern lands."
