1880 · Fisherville, New Hampshire
by Larry, J. H.
Fisherville, New Hampshire, 1880. Large broadside (approx. 26½ x 19), folio; top quarter browned along fold, some minor foxing, a few short tears, else very good and sound. Advertisement for a newspaper "Devoted to Temperance, Education, Intelligent and Honest Suffrage, the Improvement and Enforcement of our Liquor Laws, Opposition to Monopolies, the Election of every officer possible by a Direct Vote (from the President to the Postmasters), and the dissemination of such principles as may be classed under the term of Christian Morality." Includes the rather bellicose catch phrase "Independent of Everything, Neutral in Nothing." A dollar would get the reader a year's subscription, while sample issues were free. Not in OCLC but 3 holdings for the actual newspaper, University of Sydney in Australia and 2 more in New Hampshire institutions. (Inventory #: 45866)
