"Composed and Dedicated to Lieut. Gov. Allen C. Beach by a Friend and Townsman." - the dedicatee could be the composer- or could be the dedicatee. The authorship is in any case anonymous :)
Hrm. I see no notice of Lieutenant-Governor Beach running for Governor, in 1871 or otherwise, but he was elected or re-elected governor in 1870 and took office in (January 3?) 1871 (perhaps earlier terms also.) - Eric
