A New Ritual for
1 A New Ritual for "Sam" Written By One Connected with The Cincinnati Times, and Updated to Sam's Numerous Friends
Cincinnati, OH C. W. Starbuck & Co. Printed at the Cincinnati Dollar Times Office 1855 First Edition Wraps. Pamphlet. Good 
Anti-Catholic Nativist screed. 24mo. 133 by 76 mm. 48 pp. The booklet was purporting to present the ritual for a secretive organization "SAM". In fact, the document is a fiction created to advance the position of the Dollar Times. SAM was probably based on the "Order of the Star Spangled Banner" whose members were known as the "Know Nothings" because the members would assert they knew nothing when asked about the secret order. Since the actual Order was closely aligned with the Dollar Times, what is presented in this document may be very close to the actual rituals. Heavy dampstain on wrap cover. Soiling, light to heavy, throughout. The booklet is fragile and needs gentle handling.
