LETTER FROM GEORGE R. RUSSELL TO THE MASS MEETING AT PROVIDENCE, R.I., SEPT. 10, 1856.
Boston: Damrell & Moore, . 8pp, stitched, light wear. Very Good.
Russell passionately denounces the Slave Power, and supports John C. Fremont, the first Republican candidate for president. "The slave oligarchy, which rules us with iron sway, brands the whole country with its infamous character. . . Slavery has become paramount, and all other questions are forgotten or neglected, unless they can be made subservient to the advancement of a grasping and arrogant power, which allows no consideration of justice or good faith to interrupt its unhallowed course."
