Yancey, William Lowndes:

SPEECH OF HON. WM. LOWNDES YANCEY, OF ALABAMA, ON THE ANNEXATION OF TEXAS TO THE UNITED STATES. DELIVERED IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, JAN. 7, 1846.

Printed by Harris & Heart, "Constitution Office, [Washington]: [1845] 14, [2 blanks] pp. Disbound, trimmed closely [minimal loss of very bottom of letters in last line of p.7]. Light scattered foxing. Good+. This is the only printing of Yancey's bombastic speech supporting the Texas annexation. It includes vituperative attacks on his opponents, especially Clingman of North Carolina, who Yancey says has "the instincts of a brute" and is "a betrayer of the trust which has been reposed in his hands." It "led to the duel between Messrs. Yancey and Clingman." Owen. OCLC locates ten copies under two accession numbers. FIRST EDITION. Owen 1240.
