About This Item

[Providence? Kingston RI?, 1847. Folio broadside, 12-1/4" x 19". Caption title, printed in four columns. Tanned, some light spotting. Signed in type,"A Citizen of Narragansett." Good+. Updike was a Rhode Island Whig, lawyer, and public-spirited citizen. As a state legislator, he was influential in improving public education, reforming the judiciary, and extending rights to married woman. This broadside lists his qualifications, past accomplishments and outstanding character. An opponent of the Dorrites, "his zeal was tempered with discretion and with mildness and forbearance towards his political opponents." Moreover, Updike is "a foe to the extension and existence of Slavery, and opposed to the present unhappy war in which our nation is engaged." OCLC records three locations [several accession numbers] as of May 2018.
