Possibly Satirical 1861 New York Political Broadside [Broadside]. [Politics]. [New York]. Notice! To the Voters of Montgomery County. Charlestown, Montgomery County, NY, October 1, 1861. 12" x 9-3/4" broadside, single-column text below headline. Moderate toning, light soiling, horizontal and vertical fold lines, some chipping to edges, a few clean tears along fold lines. $350. * Possibly satirical, the text argues for one more election for those who "from time immemorial" have filled every office "of honor, trust or profit, within the gift of the people of Montgomery." After this final term, these people must retire so "common citizens, with less lofty pretensions may have some chance of being honored by their fellow citizens."
