Free Democratic Address to the people of the state of New York...

New York: Committee appointed by the State Convention of the Free Democracy, October, 1854. Folio broadside approx. 14½" x 9¼", text in triple column; previous folds; very good or better. Yale, AAS, and Syracuse only in OCLC. Address of the Free Soil Party, now calling itself the Free Democracy, of New York, in condemnation of the Kansas-Nebraska bill. "Slavery is the one element that disturbs our peace and threatens our stability. Originally sectional and local, it openly aims to become national and universal ... The power of deciding it is in your hands ... Let each citizen, who has felt the insult and wrong of the Nebraska perfidy, remember his personal responsibility, and swell by his vote that record of condemnation which, gathering from state to state, is about to fill Congress with honest representatives, who will convince the slave power that 'there is a North'."
