    [William Henry Harrison] The Whip & Spur! Periodical. Vol. 2, No. 12, four pages, 10.5" x 15.25", Newport [New Hampshire], November 23, 1840. This is the final addition of The Whip & Spur, a paper in support of the Democratic party. In this addition, the paper laments the election of Whig President William Henry Harrison (1773-1841), who would only remain in office for 32 days, over the incumbent president, Democrat Martin van Buren. On the final page is this message to the reader: "With this number the "Whip & Spur" will sink to repose for a season. When another CRISIS is at hand, of sufficient magnitude to demand its aid, IT WILL APPEAR AGAIN. Till then, adieu!" Fold crease are worn and some foxing is evident; there is a small tear on the back page at the edge along the horizontal fold crease. In fine condition nonetheless.
