Printed by the publisher of the Doylestown Independent Democrat, this blank announcement of horse thievery was done for a local vigilance committee. Members had assigned routes to patrol when a theft was reported, which apparently happened frequently enough to merit having the form done up. The eye-catching design at the top was made by George Gilbert, who also created lively cuts for almanacs and children’s books.
