[Beecher, Henry Ward et al]:

UNIVERSAL SUFFRAGE, AND COMPLETE EQUALITY IN CITIZENSHIP, THE SAFEGUARDS OF DEMOCRATIC INSTITUTIONS: SHOWN IN DISCOURSES BY HENRY WARD BEECHER, ANDREW JOHNSON, AND WENDELL PHILLIPS.

Boston: 1865 15, [1]pp. Stitched. Original printed prefatory leaf is a letter from George Stearns, announcing his intention "to organize the radical force of the country" and urging purchasers to buy 300 copies of this item for five dollars. Double columns, lightly dusted. About Very Good. This pamphlet was financed by George Stearns, the Boston Brahmin and one of the Secret Six who had underwritten John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry. It includes Beecher's Speech delivered on February 12, 1865, advocating universal suffrage; a summary of Andrew Johnson's 1864 Nashville speech upon his nomination for the vice-presidency, based upon which Stearns wrongly predicts Johnson's receptiveness to Negro Suffrage; and Phillips's hopeful speech asserting that Johnson's hostility to the planter class makes him a natural ally in the struggle. FIRST EDITION. Sabin 98005. LCP 1027. Not in Blockson, Work, Eberstadt, Decker.
