[Labor relations; James Garfield] WORKINGMEN! Can you afford to work as cheap as the Chinese? If so, vote for JAMES A. GARFIELD. Probably printed in Lynn, Mass., January 1880. 27.5 cm x 21.5 cm. Printed on diaphanous paper. This rare surviving anti-Garfield broadside of the presidential campaign of 1880 has undergone a surface cleaning to remove superficial and ground-in dirt. A previous repair with tape has been reversed. This broadside was washed to reduce acidity and some slight discoloration, and it was sized with gelatin to restore crispness and resilience to the paper. It has been lined with mulberry paper and wheat starch paste and matted. Expertly conserved condition is very good. James A. Garfield (1831 – 1881) is the only sitting member of the House of Representatives to have been elected to the Presidency. His tenure as President was very short, as he was assassinated in July 1881 by a disgruntled constituent.
