Redfield 1854 8.5 x 5.5, removed from bound volume, 120 double columned pages and 2 pp ads, first few pp loose with slight stain at bottom, minor text spotting else ok. In the Missouri Compromise "slavery was forever excluded from territory lying north of 36 degrees 30' north lattitude, and Missouri admitted into the Union without a restriction as to slavery." The speeches not only deal with Nebraska but also Kansas, Texas, Oregon and California, and whether slavery should be allowed in these territories. From Sen. Charles Sumner's speech " . . . I confidently look forward to the good time, when both (North and South) will unite, according to the sentiments of the fathers and the true spirit of the Constitution, in declaring Freedom and not Slavery national while Slavery and not Freedom shall be sectional."
