163 p., paper, sewn spine, apparently removed from a bound volume. This is a treasure trove of information about the immediate aftermath of the Civil War. It includes a copy of the Constitution and William H. Seward's certification of the Anti-Slavery Amendment, Article XIII; President Andrew Johnson's orders, proclamations, interviews, speeches,and annua, special, and veto messages;l"Action of the Conventions and Legislatures of the Lately Insurrectionary States;" legislation respecting Freedmen; majority and minority reports of the Joint Committee on Reconstruction; members of the President's Cabinet, the Congress, etc.; House votes on political resolutions and bills; political and military miscellaneous;" and tabular statements on representation, tariff, and the public debt. What was probably a note of transmission has been laid upon the document, leaving a largely indecipherable message in ink, backwards, on the front. Pages are browned but not brittle.
