[Little Rock: 1858]. Broadside, @7" x 9". Caption title, followed by two-column text surrounded by ruled border. Printed on pale blue paper. Tanned portion, else Very Good.
A rare Arkansas imprint, evidently unrecorded, eulogizing the Mississippian Quitman, a pro-slavery, State Rights Senator whose "clear and far sighted mind early saw the importance of the acquisition of Cuba and the spread of democratic principles over our neighboring territory."
The Arkansas Senate and House agree unanimously that, "on the eve of a momentuous [sic] struggle, the south lost a man whom she could illy spare." The broadside is signed in type by J.D. Kimbell, Secretary of the Senate, and S.M. Scott, Clerk of the House.
