Lowell: Lowell Typographical Union, No. 213, 1883. First Edition. Published letter by the Recording Secretary of the Lowell, Massachusetts, Union local, dated Oct. 18, 1883, and addressed "To Sister Unions." Describes a strike held three days prior at the office of the Times during which thirteen workers refused to work on account of "a notoriously unfair man." The Times refused to fire the man in question and promised that if the strikers left they would not be taken back "under any consideration." The Union in question had only been formed in April of that same year, with this their first disagreement, from which "we are afraid our Union will receive its death blow." A request for "hasty and cordial reponse" concludes the missive. Unlocated in OCLC as of June, 2016. Small broadside (20.5x12.75cm.); decorative Union seal at top left-hand corner. Previous mail folds, small loss to top edge not affecting text or image, else a Very Good, nicely preserved piece. (Inventory #: 30314)
