Letter urging voters to vote


From Bonner and Middleton’s Bristol Journal .

The 1781 bye-election in Bristol was caused by the death of one of the sitting MPs. George Daubeny, from a family of sugar refiners, stood against Henry Cruger, an American by birth. This campaign leaflet from Daubeny calls upon the voters of Bristol to vote for him in the election. Daubeny won the seat.

Date: Feb 17th 1781
