About this Item

No publisher, place or date. Presumed Washington, DC circa 1858. Pamphlet. Lacking any wraps that may have been issued. 30 pp. A lengthy speech arguing against the Lecompton Constitution and the entrance of Kansas to the Union under it, including some heated debate between Douglas and several other members of the Senate. Supported by President Buchanan, the Lecompton Constitution would have admitted Kansas as a slave state through exemptions written into the constitution. The vote on the constitution was boycotted by the opposing side, making its acceptance rather meaningless. Senator Douglas broke with his fellow democrats and did not favor the Lecompton Constitution (see Wikipedia for previous information). Stephen A. Douglas was a politician from Illinois, perhaps best known for his debates with Abraham Lincoln while running for the senate in that state. GOOD condition. Minor toning and soiling to the piece, with offsetting along the rear fore edge. Two pages with heavy offsetting/browning in the interior, from a piece of paper laid in.
