1805.039: James Barbour's Address to Freeholders of 10th Congressional District.
Full Title: To the freeholders of the Congressional district, composed of the counties of Spotsylvania, Louisa, Orange, and Madison, fellow citizens ... I take the liberty to advise you that I am ready to serve the district ... James Barbour, Orange, March 6, 1805.
Author: Barbour, James (1775-1842).
Place Issued: Fredericksburg
Issuing Press: Isham & Elisha Burch
Description: 1 sheet [1 pg.]; 23 cm. x 20 cm. (broadside).
Sheet lacks colophon; Barbour was part of the conservative faction of the Republican party in Virginia; it is most likely that Fredericksburg was the place of issue, from its proximity to the district described and Barbour's known associations with merchants there; at this time there was only one Republican press operating there, that of brothers Isham & Elisha Burch, so the attribution here. Barbour was defeated in this election.
