Amazing printed Broadside Extra addressed to the Patrons of the New Hampshire Patriot, January 1, 1811, headed "New Year's Gift", one page, 13" x 20". Containing a lengthy patriotic, allegorical poem describing events of the new republic with references to Shay's rebellion; Elbridge Gerry; James Madison; the Constitution; the American Revolution; Timothy Pickering, beginning: "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... When by revolution sprang out of confusion This great free Republic - The United States; Our heroes then living gave praise and thanksgiving to Him who directs the invisible fates... While in future story the fed and the tory from Pick'ring and Gore to the bold 'Silver Greys' shall sink in perdition for their opposition To governments laws - like the infamous Shays... To see Captain Gerry, succesful and merry, in ship Constitution, whose bottom is tight, in line with the Union, and holling communion, With Commodore Madison, whose compass is right". Concluding with "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.". Edges ragged, a few minor stains but overall quite nice. Very good.
