Pamphlet “Letter of Peter Cooper, on Slave Emancipation”, Loyal Publication Society, New York, 1862, 8pp., disbound. In part, “ “It is a fact that the enslavement of human beings has so far infused its insidious poison into the very hearts of the Southern people, that they have come to believe and declare the evil of slavery to be a good, and to require the power of Government to be exerted to maintain, extend, and perpetuate an institution that enables thousands to sell their own children, to be enslaved, with all their posterity, into hopeless bondage....” ...In the original formation of that Constitution, it became absolutely necessary to make a compromise with that great and all pervading interest which had then already entered into the very life-blood of the nation, rendering the formation of an union of States hopeless without such a compromise....The constitutional requirement to return fugitive slaves on their being demanded by Southern men, having been acknowledged and performed by the States, has been reaffirmed by an almost unanimous vote in Congress....These honest efforts on the part of the North to maintain peace and friendship were met by a relentless war, waged for the destruction of the Constitution and the dissolution of the Union.”
