Printed Document. One page, 8" x 10 ½". October 29, 1880. Brooklyn. Accompanied by original envelope and a 3" x 3" slip bearing the names of the Electors for New York.. The document reads: "Dear Sir:- On Tuesday, November 2d, between the hours of six thirty-two A.M. and four thirty-six P.M. you will have an opportunity of casting your vote for President of the United States. Before doing so, it becomes you to consider carefully for which candidate you will deposit your ballot so as to secure the greatest benefit to yourself and family. The Democratic platform declares for "a tariff for Revenue only," and General Hancock in his letter of acceptance says, "the principles enunciated by the Convention are those I have cherished in the past and shall endeavor to maintain in the future." This means free trade and low wages, or not at all .. The Republican platform declares, "We reaffirm the belief, avowed in 1876, that duties levied for the purpose of revenue should so discriminate as to favor American labor;" … There can be no mistaking this language. It means that the Republican party is in favor of protecting home industries so that the capital employed in our manufactories, as well as labor, shall be protected against the low-priced labor of Europe … if you are a manufacturer … or if you are a workingman … your interest lies with the Republican party for this election. … If you are a married man, consult with your wife before you make up your mind which way you will vote, as she is equally interested with you, and then go to the poles early in the morning and deposit your ballot. It is a duty you have no right to neglect." Fine condition.
