    Description

    [James G. Blaine or Benjamin Harrison]: Anti-Cleveland Banner. 32" x 45" stenciled banner with extensive quote favorable to Grover Cleveland (making reference to Lincoln) from "Jas. Russell Lowell, Minister to England Under Arthur". We assume this recommendation from a pro-English diplomat was used to inflame Irish-American voters to cast their votes for the Republican candidate. It is reminiscent of the "Murchison Letter" sent by Sir Lionel Sackville-West in 1888 which cost Cleveland the election. Mounted recently to linen as a roller window shade.
