Thomas, Benjamin F. :

REMARKS OF MR. THOMAS, OF MASSACHUSETTS, ON THE RELATION OF THE 'SECEDED STATES' (SO CALLED) TO THE UNION, AND THE CONFISCATION OF PROPERTY AND EMANCIPATION OF SLAVES IN SUCH STATES, IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, APRIL 10, 1862.

Printed at the Congressional Globe Office, Washington: 1862 14, [2 blank] pp. Disbound. Printed in double columns. Outer leaves dustsoiled, water stain through text. Good+ to Very Good. Secession is a figment of the imagination. The War is between the United States and "its disobedient subjects," who are guilty of treason. But except for slaves actually assisting Confederate armies, confiscation and emancipation are not permissible exercises of the war power. Bartlett 4997. II Nevins 115 [Boston printing].
