Circular letter, signed by John Ryle, one of the representatives in Parliament of the Town of Macclesfied, England, asking people to go to vote, for him, in the 1832 elections. John Ryle, a Conservative, was MP from 1832-1837. A banker at Daintry and Ryle and Co., he was compelled to resign when the bank failed in August, 1841. Macclesfield, a market town in Cheshire, England, was first represented in Parliament after the Reform Act of 1832. Macclesfield was granted a borough charter in the early 13th century. In principle, the term borough designates a self-governing walled town, although in practice, official use of the term varies widely. Note: The text is not referring to John Ryle (1817- 1887) the "father of the United States silk industry" also born in Macclesfied.
