About This Item

[Providence?, 1842. Broadside, 8" x 11". Light dusting and wear, Good+. The broadside, opposing the Dorrites, prints Titus's 1842 letter to Rhode Island Governor King withdrawing his candidacy for Attorney General on the Dorr Ticket "under the so-called 'People's Constitution'." Titus has taken to heart President Tyler's admonition that federal troops will be deployed to assist the Charter Government, on the ground that the People's Constitution is illegitimate. He thus has decided not to put at risk "the peace and happiness of my adopted State." "Mr. Titus comes to the same conclusion as any honest and peaceable citizen..." Yet the Dorrites have kept his name on their ticket, and continue to threaten the use of military force against the established, legitimate government. The broadside urges "every good citizen" to follow Titus's "patriotic example-- and thus avoid the tremendous consequences that must and will follow a gross violation of the laws." Our Dorr expert, Russ DeSimone, has written about the controversy and this broadside at length. DeSimone, RHODE ISLAND'S REBELLION... NUMBER TWO, pages 11-13. OCLC 25583300 [1- Brown] as of April 2019.
