Hello, I am a newspaper & document collector & currently own an authentic Boston newspaper dated November 14, 1843 with a large story about the recent elections. Part of the report is as follows:
Suffolk - 5 Whigs elected - Josiah Quincy, Jr., Jeffrey Richardson, Nathaniel Hammond, Chas. Francis Adams, John C. Park. Hampden - Joseph M. Forward, and Erasmus D. Beach, Democrats, are probably elected. Hampshire - Myron Lawrence, of Belchertown, and Benjamin Barrett, of Northampton, Whigs, are elected. Berkshire - Henry H. Cooke, and Asa L. Buck, Jr., Democrats, are probably elected.
I would like to correspond with anyone familiar with Mr. Quincy. Thanks, Joy
