Lincoln delivered his famous "House Divided" speech at this convention and was nominated to run against Democrat Stephen A. Douglas in the senatorial election. M-11 is the first separate printing of the speech while this version contains not only the speech, but a report on the proceedings of the convention. The speech appears on pages 9 through 12.

This copy was purchased in 1954 from Goodspeed's Bookshop for $27.50.
