OPEN LETTER OF NEWTON BOOTH TO JOHN B. FELTON.

Sacramento: H.A. Weaver & Co., Steam Book and Job Printers, 1873. 7, [1 blank] pp. Last page prints the People's Union Independent Anti-Monopoly Ticket, for State Senate and Assemblymen. Very Good.

Booth was elected Governor of California in 1871, campaigning as a Republican and with support from African Americans. In 1875, he resigned his office and, with the help of the Anti-Monopoly Party, was elected U.S. Senator from California. Booth had supported Lincoln in 1860. Felton, also a Republican and the Mayor of Oakland, had criticized Booth for an allegedly insufficient anti-monopoly stance. The offended Booth responded with this Open Letter, accusing Felton of joining "hired assassins of character," of suffering from "mental obliquity," and failing to be "generous, candid, fair or truthful."
