1800.034: Circular Letter on Ticket of Republican Electors.
Full Title: Richmond, August 9th, 1800. Sir, we have taken the liberty to advise you, to have the tickets for electors of president and vice-president of the United States written; and have thought proper to recommend to you the following form.
Author: Republican Party of Virginia. General Committee.
Place Issued: Richmond
Issuing Press: Uncertain
Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 31 cm. x 19 cm. (broadside).
Signed in print: "P.N. Nicholas, chairman. Meriwether Jones, Samuel Pleasants, Jun., Joseph Selden, Gervas Storrs, John H. Foushee, secretary." Herein, the committee circulated the names of the ticket of electors pledged to Jefferson & Burr with instructions as to how voters would submit them in the forthcoming election, in accordance with the General Ticket Law. Sheet lacks printer credit; while clearly issued in Richmond, the press producing this circular is uncertain, particularly as the two Republican printers then operating there – Meriwether Jones and Samuel Pleasants – were both signing members of the corresponding committee.
