Correspondence on the proposed Southern Convention Mar. 7, 1850 referred to as the Nashville Convention

By D.L Yulee

three page document with letter from the Florida delegation with printed signatures of D L Yulee, Jackson Morton and E.C Cabell. The letter contains strong statements about the North seeking to undermine the Southern "social structure" (slavery) and urges support of the Nashville Convention to organize Southern opposition to the Compromise of 1850. The document was sent in the form of a stampless folded letter, with green Tallahassee, Flor postmark and 10 rate marking, also in green. This was in the famous Maroni collection. Please read the document in the photo section regarding the Nashville Convention. This will be included with the letter. This is a scarce document regarding this important event in American History leading up to the American Civil War.
