Speech on President's Kansas Message by Albert G. Brown of Mississippi - Slavery & North v South Conflict

1858-Dated, Imprint entitled, "Speech of Hon. Albert G. Brown, of Mississippi, on the President's Kansas Message - February 3rd & 4th, 1758," Printed by Lemuel Towers, Washington, Fine.

This historic, original imprint measures 9" x 5.75" and has 32 pages, is well printed with some separation at the spine so the pages are disconnected, yet are in fine condition, not affecting the text. This Speech was given in the United States Senate on February 3rd and 4th in 1858. In this speech, Senator Brown makes mention that in regards to the Senator from Illinois, that upon his shoulders rest a fearful responsibility. In part he states:

"Does he mean to array a whole united North against a whole united South? If this result shall ever be accomplished, it will be done, in my opinion, over laws violated, constitutions trampled under foot, and compact flagrantly outraged."

Brown unknowingly foretells the upcoming Civil War just three short years later. There is a red stamp of the Newark Library Association on the self-wrapper cover.
