Washington: 1856. [4], 1307-1324 pp [as issued]. Original printed self-wrappers, stitched, untrimmed, partly uncut. Minor edge and margin wear, else Very Good.

An Indiana Whig who had switched to the Republican Party, George Dunn and other Republicans are attacked for their votes on Kansas Bills [reproduced here, with amendments and permutations], summed up as follows by the unsympathetic author: "Remember that this Republican party sent men, money, and munitions of war to Kansas, to foment and support open rebellion against the laws they thus had refused to repeal; and their members of Congress, at the same time, endeavored to stop the supplies of the army, and thus deprive the President of the power to preserve order. All this, that violence might continue, and blood flow there; that they might make political capital out of outrage and blood."
