About this Item

Wraps. No evidence of being disbound but may be a tract pamphlet of some sort. 13pp. A speech by Ficklin arguing for the United States to retain possession of the Oregon territory, especially in the face of the termination of joint occupancy of the territory between Britain and the US. Ficklin cites many historical references to early explorations and explorers visiting Oregon, including brief accounts of their descriptions, apparently in an effort to establish a US claim to the territory.

Two horizontal creases present, with some creasing present along the extremities. Minor soiling present. Rear wrap and interior pages with a faint dampstain at the top corner, mostly affecting the margins. Minor foxing. Interior solid, with several pages unopened and a hint of soiling. Sabin 24258.
