Opis: Ten Thousand a Year, Vol. 3 of 3 (Classic Reprint) - Warren Samuel

Excerpt from Ten Thousand a Year, Vol. 3 of 3<br><br>There had not been a contested election at Yatton, till the present one between Mr Delamere and Mr Titmouse, for a long series of years; its two members having been, till then, OAving to the smallness of the constituency, their comparative unanimity of political sentiment, and the dominant influence of the Yatton family, returned, pretty nearly, as a matter of course. When, therefore, quiet little Yatton (for such it was, albeit politically enlarged by the new Act) became the scene of so sudden and hot a contest as that which I am going to describe, and under such novel and exciting circumstances, it seemed in a manner quite beside itself. The walls were every where covered with glaring placards - red, blue, green, yellow, white, purple - judiciously designed to stimulate the electors into a calm and intelligent exercise of their important functions. Here are the inscriptions upon a few of them: -<br><br>"Vote for Titmouse, the Man of the People!" "Titmouse and Civil and Religious Liberty!" "Titmouse and Cheap Ale!" "Titmouse and Purity of Election!" "Titmouse and Negro Emancipation!" "Vote for Titmouse and No Mistake!" "Titmouse and Quarterly Parliaments, Vote By Ballot, and Universal Suffrage!"<br><br>['Twas thus that the name of my little friend, like that of many others of his species, was attached to great public questions, somewhat after the manner of a kettle tied to a dog's tail!]<br><br>About the Publisher<br><br>Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at www.forgottenbooks.com<br><br>This book is a reproduction of an important historical work. Forgotten Books uses state-of-the-art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy. In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition.
