Drake, Charles D.:

THE WRONGS TO MISSOURI'S LOYAL PEOPLE. SPEECH OF..., BEFORE THE MASS CONVENTION AT JEFFERSON CITY, SEPTEMBER 1, 1863.

[n.p.(Missouri): 1863] 13pp, double columns, stitched Caption title [as issued]. First leaf heavily foxed, Good to Good+. Drake says, "We are, and are not afraid to declare that we are RADICALS. That is, we are for going to the root of the infamous rebellion...and are for destroying that as well as the rebellion. That root is the institution of SLAVERY...It is Country or Slavery; and he is a traitor who will compromise between them." He enthusiastically supports the Emancipation Proclamation and urges slavery's elimination in Missouri which, as a loyal Border State, was unaffected by the Proclamation. Drake traces the transformation of sentiment in Missouri, from a pro-slavery State to radical abolitionism. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 20817n. 148 NUC 0364470 [3]. Not in LCP.
