A Proclamation

Here is an accidental find – a proclamation from Mayor Guillotte of New Orleans published in the Times Picayune on January 7, 1888 congratulating the people of New Orleans for not brawling, shooting, or killing anyone during the recent primary election:

“I congratulate the citizens of New Orleans upon the orderly and peaceful termination of so exciting a political campaign, and trust that in all future elections the same good order may ever be maintained.”

Good job!
