About this Item

Mayor Morris refused to swear in Heath and Roome as assessors, claiming election irregularity. The state supreme court held: "The loss of the votes in one of the four districts into which the Sixth ward was divided, did not defeat the election in that ward. If the votes of the First district are to be considered as wholly out of the question, in consequence of the riotous proceedings which drove the Inspectors from the room where they were canvassing, the result of the election must then be determined from the votes of the three remaining districts." Does this sound like foreshadowing of the 2000 presidential election? 8vo. 46 pp., [1 (blank)] f. Good. Stitched, in self-wrappers. Title-page soiled with very shallow chipping. Corners bumped. Pages browned in the margins. Last leaf creased. Bookseller Inventory # 1240
