A very historic issue for the Republican party as it reports their first Presidential nominee, John Fremont. The newly created political party held the prohibition of slavery as the principal issue of their platform.
The top of page 4 has a nice print of: "Col. John Charles Fremont" with the following text, taking a full column then carrying over to taking the entirety of page 5, is headed: "THE PEOPLES' CONVENTION" "The Platform" "Col. J. C. Fremont Nominated for President".
Of significance is the full text of "The Platform" of the party.
Complete in 8 pages, several creases to internal pages, good condition.
