    Supplement to the Hampshire Federalist. Four pages, 9" x 11" (width varies), Springfield [Massachusetts], April 1, 1806. This supplement to the weekly newspaper Hampshire Federalist is intended, in its entirety, to smear the name of Massachusetts Attorney General James Sullivan who was running for Governor of Massachusetts. The paper attempts to prove that Sullivan "has withheld from your treasury, money which he was bound by his office long since to have deposited there...[and] while you have been laboriously yet cheerfully pursuing the means of honest livelihood on your farms and in you workshops, this very Mr. Sullivan, who now asks you to make him your Governor, has been wallowing in luxurious ease, supported by money disgracfully [sic] and wantonly withheld from your Treasury." Untrimmed edges with some light dampstaining.
