A handbill through which William Davis, Minehead voter and prominent opponent of the dominant Luttrell family, condemns John Fownes Luttrell's acts of 'revenge' against his political opponents since his re-election for Minehead in 1802. Raising the memory of the Minehead election of 1796, when an anti-Luttrell candidate was elected, Davis seeks to rally the opposition to Luttrell, encouraging his 'Fellow Electors' not to be 'dismayed' by political intimidation ('If you are turn'd out of your houses').
