A useful summary of the arguments posed at the state convention called to debate the admission of California into the Union as a free state. The application of California to be admitted as a slave-free state touched off a massive and consequential debate throughout the Union, in time only temporarily settled by the Compromise of 1850. A good exposition of the states' rights argument at a pivotal juncture. Scarce. Not in De Renne. OCLC locates only seven copies. SABIN 27036. OCLC 5859874.
