Complete and authentic issue of The Daily Delta, New Orleans, February 20, 1861, 8pp., disbound, VG. from the second page, "Inaugural Address, President Jefferson Davis, Delivered Montgomery February 18, 1861". The printed speech runs over a full column, in part, "Called to the difficult and responsible station of Chief Executive of the Provisional Government which you have instituted, I approach the discharge of the duties assigned to me with an humble distrust of my abilities ... The declared purpose of the compact of Union from which we have withdrawn was "to establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessing of liberty to ourselves and our posterity;" and when, in the judgment of the sovereign States now composing this Confederacy, it had been perverted from the purposes for which it was ordained, and had ceased to answer the ends for which it was established ... For purposes of defense, the Confederate States may, under ordinary circumstances, rely mainly upon their militia, but it is deemed advisable, in the present condition of affairs, that there should be a well-instructed and disciplined army ... the separation of the Confederate States has been marked by no aggression upon others and followed by no domestic convulsion. ..." Then from an interior page, a report of "Lincoln Enroute to Washington" with a brief Lincoln speech in Cleveland. Several illustrated runaway slave ads.
