TO THE FREEMEN AND INDEPENDENT CITIZENS OF KENNEBUNK [caption title]
[Kennebunk, Me, 1840. Light foxing and fold lines, 5-inch tear in from left edge along uppermost fold. Good. A lengthy campaign broadside endorsing one Jeremiah Lord for the Maine state legislature. The broadside also addresses the temperance debate which, the author maintains, is being unjustly advanced by the rich in an effort to manipulate the poor. Maine was a hotbed of temperance activity, in part due to the efforts of the zealous Neal Dow, one-time mayor of Portland and organizer of the Maine Temperance Union. A good early exposé of the political (as opposed to moral) motivations of the temperance movement. Rare. Not on OCLC.
