Vote for yourself
To the Students of Mr. Jefferson’s University,
The Sixth of November fast approaches; the day all Americans, as patriots, may exercise together their common right to vote. For eight long years the heroes of 1776 fought for representation, and over two centuries later we must continue in their stead. Your freedom was their aspiration.
The partisan speech preceding Election Day may grind your ears but do not let it deter your voice, for the most potent tyranny on November Sixth is silence. All parties, Federalists and Democratic-Republicans, can agree that the thousand thruppence spent on broadsides and buttons are not worth a fraction of your vote. That is priceless by any currency. VOTE, find Liberty in the self-government of this great country, and, by that act, make it greater.
THE GATHERED SONS AND DAUGHTERS OF LIBERTY
