Descripción

Printed broadside, 17 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches, employing bold capitals for the short head. Issued as a campaign platform for a position as one of the delegates to Virginia's secession convention, Willis argues forcefully for secession in this broadside, defends the institution of slavery, and announces that he will work toward removing Virginia from the Union; another Orange County representative was chosen in his stead when the delegates convened in February, 1861. Inscribed on the verso (in the hand of the author or printer?) "J. Barbour / H.W. Vandergraft, Esq & / J.H. Rives, Esq."; Barbour served as a delegate to the convention from Culpeper County and Rives, from Charlottesville, commanded an artillery battery during the ensuing war. "More Virginia Broadsides" 644 (Virginia). Apparently not recorded on OCLC. Folded (several small breaks at fold corners, resulting in the loss of a fewletters); professionally laid down on rice paper, a very good copy. (#5085). N° de ref. de la librería 58054
