ADDRESS OF HON. ALBERT G. BROWN, BEFORE THE MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI, NOVEMBER 8, 1859.

Washington: Towers, 1859. 15, [1 blank] pp. Upper forecorners rounded. Disbound and lightly toned. Good+.

This is the only printing of Brown's powerful statement of the Southern Rights position at the end of the 1850s. Brown denounces Republicans, "a fanatical horde who trample without remorse on the Constitution."
Brown explains the differences between Northern Democrats-- led by Stephen A. Douglas, champion of Popular Sovereignty-- and Southern Democrats, who insisted the National Government was obliged to protect slavery in the Territories regardless of the wishes of a popular majority. The Douglas position discriminates unlawfully against Slave Property, which is entitled to equal and identical treatment with other forms of property.
