Rare mid-19th century printed booklet, entitled: "Remarks of Mr. Dellet of Alabama on the Civil and Diplomatic appropriation Bill…in the House of Representatives, April…1840," printed by Gales and Seaton, Washington, 1840, 29pp. 8vo., reading, in part: "…Mr. Van Buren used every exertion in power to induce Congress to prohibit slavery in the State of Missouri…his course on that subject has been disapproved by the whole South…his idea [is] that the free negroes ought to participate with the white citizens in the most important civil immunities…the negro and the white man can never harmonize in civil society. God made them antagonist in their nature. You may reduce the white man to the level of the negro…but you never can elevate the negro to moral, social, and intellectual standard of your free white citizen…the humane may lament a condition…but [it is] original, unchangeable, and beyond the correction of human means…Van Buren voted in the Senate of the United States to prevent the introduction of slaves into Florida…he asserts that Congress has the power to abolish slavery in the District of Columbia; and then states, 'but, should Congress pass such a law, the policy of the act would call on the Executive to withhold his appropriation." Much more intriguing racial content. Minor damp stain with expected normal expected wear, else VG.
