Van Trump was an Ohio Democrat who served in the House of Representatives from 1867-1873. This rare pamphlet is a printed Letter to his constituents, dated April 10, 1872. Van Trump attaches a 'Letter to the Editor of the Ohio Statesman,' dated 2 April 1872. He urges them to be steadfast and true to the Democratic Party. He deplores the "scandalous imputation by this 'Liberal' Republican' [i.e., Horace Greeley, presidential candidate of the Liberal Republicans] upon the honesty of the Democratic masses, or the arrogant suggestion that Governor Parker should be ostracised by the Cincinnati Convention, for no other reason than because he is guilty of the unpardonable sin of being a Democrat." Parker was the Democratic Governor of New Jersey, and a possible candidate for that Party's 1872 presidential nomination.
