Governor Edmunds asserts that "Liberty and equal rights must be our watchword, and must be extended and guaranteed to all classes of American citizens, not even excepting the poor benighted African, who has, to the present time, in this country, been the victim of hard, implacable avarice." He also reports on the Sioux War, the organization of the Dakota Government, immigration, gold deposits and routes to the gold mines, and other matters. The Journal covers a variety of legislative matters.
