Discussing the possibility of admitting California to the Union...
Item # 660130
August 15, 1850
DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Aug. 15, 1850 Most of pages 1 and 2 are taken up with the lengthy & detailed: "Debate In The Senate" concerning the possible: "Admission of California" to the Union. Interesting that the discussion begins with comments by: "Mr. Davis, of Mississippi..." being Jefferson Davis. further on the discussion involves Sam Houston s well.
California would be admitted to the Union less than 4 weeks later. Great to have this report in the newspaper which was the mouthpiece of Congress.
Four pages, nice condition.
