Reasons for not voting for Botts:
- 1. He was a Know Nothing in 1855, and by secret oaths strove to exclude foreigners and Catholics from office.
- 2. He speaks, thinks and writes to please the North and not the South. All the Abolitionists applaud him; the South denounce him.
- 3. The emissaries of Botts tell our mechanics that we have nothing to complain of, and that State Rights men will, by Disunion, deprive them of work. How much work do Botts and his Black Republican allies give you?
- 4. If Richmond elects Botts her trade with Virginia and the South will surely suffer. Orders for manufactures for Georgia, &c., will be instantly withdrawn, and our farmers will not deal with the supporters of Botts.
