* Frederick Douglass speech
* Emancipation of slaves

The back page has: "Emancipation Jubilee" "Gathering of the Clans--Arrival at the Park--A Sable Beauty--Jeff. Davis--Orator of the Day--The Oration--Badge Distribution--A Pleasant Time". This takes over half the page & includes a brief speech by Frederick Douglass in which says in part: "...We are to rejoice; from the West to the East...we have been called to give thanks for emancipation and the progress of freedom....No man here wants to know whether Liberty is a good thing and Slavery a bad thing; we all know it already..." (see). A printing flaw appears at the beginning of this report. (see)
Twelve pages, never bound nor trimmed (uncommon), nice condition.
