DescriptionSlavery: Travel Journal Describing Senate Debate on Abolition, 1836. Twenty-four pages (eight of which are blank), 5" x 7.25", February 24 - March 21, 1836, Boston and Washington, D.C., unsigned. Modest foxing and soiling, else, fine.
The journal is a very interesting account of the author's trip to the nation's capitol where he "called on President [Jackson] & Mr. Van Buren with Mr. [Jacob] Bigelow" and observed Senate debate on slavery in the District of Columbia where Senator Felix Grundy of Tennessee asserted "that [abolitionists] were ignorant [and] knew nothing of the ties which bound the master & slave together; and with that the slave were better fed, better clothed and happier than the poor laborers of the north."
