[The four corner holes in this particular notification show where the hand-wrought iron nail tacks were driven in, and then later carefully removed, when the notification was taken down. The West Brattleboro Society required that four such "Notifications" were to be placed in four different public places in Brattleboro, in advance of the election. These places were usually the popular public taverns and inns.]
