Rare appeal to voters in German by an English speaker, complete with Germanized signature. Lovell was the son of a well-to-do Fredericksburg merchant, William Lovell (1758-1826), who was an active part of Virginia's navy during the Revolutionary War; by 1813, young Lovell had established himself in business in Woodstock, where 7 of his 9 children would be born; this effort proved the first of three successful campaigns for the House of Delegates, as he served in the 1813-14, 1814-15, and 1815-16 Assembly sessions. Sheet lacks colophon; only known copy is in the Henkel Family Papers collection at University of Virginia, so the attribution to the Henkel Press, then conducted by Ambrose Henkel.
