Pamphlet. 15 pp. Double columned text. A printing of a speech by Senator Stephen Douglas, speaking out against the legitimacy of the Lecompton Constitution of Kansas, citing coercion and other tactics by pro-slavery forces used to try to establish Kansas as a slave state.

Several horizontal creases present. A few minor stains present. Corners creased and curled.
