"In politics the New Era is devoted to the interests of the new National Greenback Party, and the restoration of business and prosperity throughout our land. This paper does not believe that people who are willing to work should be compelled to starve in this fertile country; nor does it believe that the farmer should become a 'tenant' upon his own farm." A promotional circular for this Greenback newspaper, intended to increase its circulation beyond Maine's borders and into New Hampshire, with endorsements from New Hampshire committee members, and generous terms to agents noted. The paper here is noted as "six months old" -- the first number was issued in November, 1877, suggesting this circular dates from 1878.
