    James K. Polk: "Polk Elected" Broadside. Along with listing vote tallies and celebrating Polk's success in New York, this dramatic broadside portrays Henry Clay's character in a very unfavorable light, beseeching voters to "TRUST HIM NOT!" This piece measures 8.75" x 11.875", and is in good condition for its age. In addition to expected wear and creasing, there is some loss at top right corner and bottom left corner with a small hole at center crease above "Virginia." Some tape has been added to back to help with fragile creasing. Overall, this is a wonderful broadside with plenty of character and enthusiasm.
