    (CARRIER'S ADDRESS). (MAINE). New Year's Address to the Patrons of the Union. Sent by the Carrier Boy. [Caption title]. [In] The Union. Saco, Maine, January 7, 1846. Vol. I, # 49, p. [4]. Elephant folio. $100.00


    Three columns of political verse inside a broad typographical border, typical of such addresses, but this one printed in the regular newspaper. Extremely critical of Birney who, it avers, "let in Polk to keep out Clay./ A madder act, 'tis not to try/ To quench the sun to scarce a fly./ As on the banks of Rio Grande/ The future slave of Texas stands/ And sees his children from him torn/ To bear the wrongs which he has borne."

    At the end, in bold type: "Oh don't forget the orphan boy,/ Who brings the weekly Union."

    The ULN shows only two holdings from the initial year of this paper.
