Colorado:

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, RETURNING THE BILL TO ADMIT THE STATE OF COLORADO INTO THE UNION, WITH HIS OBJECTIONS THERETO.

SED7., 39th Cong., 2d Sess.: 1867 11pp, dbd, minor foxing. Very Good. Colorado became a Territory in 1861. Despite its pleas for admission to the Union, it did not become a State until 1876. President Johnson explains that, although the people of Colorado had approved a constitutional provision prohibiting Negroes from voting, Congress's bill to admit Colorado as a State barred it from denying the suffrage on that ground. "The incongruity" results in his veto.
