Additional Information From the Colton Storm catalogue: "Abelard Guthrie was elected a delegate to Congress from Nebraska Territory on October 12, 1852. On July 28, 1853, he was again nominated by a convention held at Wyandotte. Through the machinations of the Indian Commissioner, he was defeated at the election held on November 8, and the Rev. Thomas Johnson was the successful candidate, although a Hadley Johnson pulled more votes at the polling place at Sarpy's Point. Both the Johnsons and Guthrie were in Washington during the session of 1853-54. The present broadside by Guthrie was his bid to the electors prior to the election."
