|Notes:||Comparing corrupt practices of various New York railroads with those of the Boston and Providence and the Stonington roads [i.e., New York, Providence and Boston Railroad Company], especially in their issuing free tickets to win the favor and influence of Rhode Island legislators. "A million of dollars thus yearly distributed by these powerful corporations, to obtain more power! And this merely by the roads leading into one city."
For another broadside concerning distribution of free tickets by officials of the Stonington Railroad as a means of influencing Rhode Island elections, cf. Justice (Writer). Railroad electioneering, 1854.
