* Frederick Douglass in United States Congress
Page 6 has an interesting report headed: "Fred. Douglass in Congress" which mentions in part: "There is no law against sending Fred. Douglass to Congress...Fred. Douglass is without any doubt the most talented negro of his time. He is a remarkable specimen of his race, and were he white he would be a man of mark...He is really a ready debater, a forcible speaker...Although we are no admirer of Fred. Douglass, yet we are free to say this much of any extraordinary negro." with more (see).
Eight pages, never-trimmed margins, various toning, a few minor margin tears, generally nice.
