An Appeal To The Americanism
Of the Visiting
Governors & Mayors
400,000 residents of the District of Columbia pay Federal taxes, obey Federal laws, go to war to defend the Federal government! But these 400,000 have no representation in Congress, no Presidential vote.
Will you help us effect the Constitutional Amendment, which will give us this right, to which we, as American citizens, are entitled?
“Taxation Without Representation Is Tyranny!”
This appeal is made by men of the District of Columbia, men deeply interested in its Americanization.
This newspaper advertisement is from a scan of the original newspaper on Chronicling America. It is being republished here in order to continue my advocacy for full representation for the American citizens of the District of Columbia.
