Broadside. Proclamation. Connecticut. Gov. Pitkin...day Of Public Fasting.. 1769 For Sale
Offered is a colonial Proclamation out of Connecticut during the Governorship of William Pitkin. Pitkin was Hartford-born in 1694 and was prominent in Connecticut politics from about 1728 until his death in 1769, the year of this proclamation. He became Governor in 1766, defeating Thomas Fitch a 12-year incumbent. Fitch might have won, but his support of the Stamp Act in 1765 was a major factor in putting Pitkin in the governor's chair. In any case, this document measures 10 1/2 x 14 3/4, is dated March 9, 1769, is blank on the verso, and is in fine condition. Indeed, almost pristine. SEE SCANS for the text of the proclamation. A rather handsome piece, and with wide margins that do not appear to have been cropped. Payment via Paypal, though other forms of payment are usually accepted.
