Candidate Address

Gloucestershire Archives

A post-election, (former) candidate address from Lord Galway to the inhabitants of Pontefract. Printed days after the end of Galway's campaign to be elected in the Pontefract by-election of 1791, the address seeks to keep Galway's electoral hopes alive 'if any sudden and unexpected Vacancy should again take Place, for a Representative to serve them in Parliament'.
