New Hampton - GET OUT the VOTE! – in 1810

 
Below is an 1810 printed note from the Governor of New Hampshire, John Langdon – an original signer of the United States Constitution and one of New Hampshire’s first senators. It is also signed by the Secretary of State, Samuel Sparhawk. This was sent to Selectmen in New Hampton to remind voters to please do their civic duty. Enjoy!
