About This Item

[Providence?, 1831. Broadside, 11" x 18". Printed in three columns. Browned uniformly. Several holes along the blank vertical line separating the second and third columns but text unaffected. Old folds, some spotting. Good to Good+ Governor Fenner, Rhode Island's leading Jacksonian, was opposed by the Whig Lemuel Arnold in the 1831 gubernatorial election. This pamphlet attacks Fenner and his Jacksonian allies. "Desperate must be that cause, which requires the aid of falsehood to support it. Such is the Jackson and the Fenner cause in Rhode Island, and if Governor Fenner is re-elected, it will be, because truth is not mighty and cannot prevail." Fenner has circulated a "false and malicious electioneering pamphlet" about Arnold's business dealings, accusing him of improper conduct in a Turnpike purchase, his relations with the Farmers and Mechanics Bank, and other corrupt dealings. This broadside is a detailed rebuttal. Arnold won the election. Not in American Imprints, Sabin, Bartlett. OCLC 24817053 [1- Brown] as of August 2018.
