About This Item

[Maine]: [publisher not identified], 1856. Good. Broadsheet. Printed in two columns divided by a single line. 9 1/2 x 6 7/8 inches. Stained and folded horizontally. No printer's imprint, apparently as issued. The first paragraph states "The people of the Free States have so long yielded to the arrogant demands of the Slave Oligarchy of the South, that the latter has come to think it can carry any measure it seems fit, no matter how degrading it may be to the character of the free white men of the North."

It finishes with "The New York Day Book, one of two papers in New York City that support James Buchanan, proposes to enslave poor AMERICANS, GERMANS and IRISH, who may fall into poverty and be unable to support their families. Here are the Day Book's exact words in speaking of the POOR WHITE PEOPLE: "Sell the parents of these children into SLAVERY. Let our Legislature pass a law that whoever will take these parents and take care of them and their OFFSPRING, in sickness and in health, - clothe them, feed them, and house them,-shall be legally entitled to their services;and let the same Legislature decree that whoever receives these parents and their CHILDREN and obtains their services, shall take care of the AS LONG AS THEY LIVE." HANNIBAL HAMLIN is the Representative and Advocate of the extension of FREE LABOR. SAMUEL WELLS is the Representative and Advocate of the extension of SLAVE LABOR. For which will you cast your votes, Freemen of Maine"

A number of different handouts with the same title were apparently published in various places in the country. OCLC/Worldcat does not appear to record this version. New Hampshire and Rhode Island examples are recorded (also with no imprint).
