[Providence: 1843]. Broadside, 8-1/4" x 9-1/4." Two columns of text printed beneath boldly printed title. Mild uniform toning, Very Good plus. Signed in type at the end by Cyrus Butler of Brown & Ives. "Dated at Providence, March 29, 1843."
A contemptuous refutation of the claim of "the Dorrites, that the State is indebted on account of the late insurrection, $500,000-- for expenses of the Quarter Master's and Commissary's Departments, and for money borrowed of Messrs. Brown & Ives and Cyrus Butler, of Providence."
In fact, however, "the true statement of the costs of the Dorrite war" is only "the sum of $5000." The difference between $5,000 and $500,000 is "what the Dorrites will claim and have of the State themselves, if you give them the power by supporting the falsely called Democratic Ticket." Supporting data from the Commissary General and Quarter-Master General demolish the false claims.
