NEW YORK TIMES, Sept. 4, 1860
* Abraham Lincoln
* Presidential candidate
* Views on slavery
Page 4 has a great and timely item concerning Lincoln's views on slavery, headed: "Lincoln and Slavery--Conservatism of the Republican Candidate". It begins: "The attempt to prove Mr. Lincoln a radical Abolitionist, which was so eagerly entered upon at the outset of the canvass, seems to lag. It is getting to be decidedly up-hill work...". Included is a copy of a rare letter dated "March 3, 1837" concerning slavery, signed in type: Dan Stone and A. Lincoln. This is followed by interview questions to Lincoln with his responses. The full articles takes 1 1/2 columns.
Page 2 has: "The Last Slaver Captured" "The Brig Triton Taken Into Norfolk" with details.
Eight pages, small spine indents from disbinding, nice condition.
