Reply to a Letter from William Kellogg


Entertain no proposition for a compromise in regard to the extension of slavery. The instant you do they have us under again: all our labor is lost and sooner or later must be done over.Douglas is sure to be again trying to bring in his "popular sovereignty." Have none of it.
