    1811 Patriotic Poem Broadside, "New-Year's Gift/ Addressed to the Patrons of the New Hampshire Patriot". One page, 13" x 20". This broadside contains a lengthy patriotic poem describing events of the new republic with references to Elbridge Gerry, Shay's rebellion, James Madison, the Constitution, the Revolution, Timothy Pickering, and more. It begins, "Our Eagle shall soar till time is no more, And ne'er lose the plumes that adorn his broad wings; But range wide creation every nation Shall burst from the shackles of tyrants and kings. . . To see Captain Gerry, successful and merry, in ship Constitution, whose bottom is tight, in line with the Union, and holling communion, With Commodore Madison, whose compass is right." It concludes, "Our wise Constitution and late Revolution, We always will cherish, and 'scorn to be slaves'; our land-men and sea-men will try to live Freemen, As long as old Ocean shall swell with its waves." There are a few minor stains and edges are uneven. One small hole in far right column. Near very good.
