Below the masthead on the second page is an article entitled “PENNSYLVANIA REDEEMED!” and which reads “Pennsylvania is redeemed, and is sure to give a large majority for LINCOLN, whose election is now placed beyond doubt. The Republicans, inspirited by hope, will fight the battle of freedom from now till the 6th of November with redoubled ardor. The reign of the corrupt Shamocratic dynasty is almost over, and a new era is about to be inaugurated with the inauguration of HONEST ABE LINCOLN.” On the front page is a fictional (?) piece entitled “The Negro’s Revenge,” which involves a “Ashantee” named Zanga, and a shark. Also a letter from a minister in Syria, and several anti-slavery mentions inside. Paper in great shape, with no holes and no tears. Good luck!
