Broadside with thoughts of James Buchanan on the issued of slavery, 1pp. 6”x10”, and reads in part, “... The agitation at the North on the subject of domestic slavery in the South, like every thing human, will have its day. We have already reached, and, I trust, passed the dangerous crisis. Should this prove to be the case, the tempest which has been raging will purify the political atmosphere, and impart new and healthful life and vigor to the body politic. But if, in the midst of such a temporary excitement, the Union should be dissolved, the mischief will then be irreparable. “Nations unborn, and ages yet behind,” will curse the rashness of the deed. Should “the silver cord be loosed, and the golden bowl be broken at the fountain,” human power will never be able to re-unite the scattered fragments. If the Almighty Ruler of the Universe has, in his Providence, destined the dissolution of the Union, as a punishment for the sins of the Nation, I hope, before that day, I may be gathered to my fathers, and never witness the sad catastrophe.” Fine condition, c.1850.
