Excerpt from A Caveat: Or Considerations Against the Admission of Missouri, With Slavery, Into the UnionAt the approaching session of Congress, it is to be finally decided by the Representatives of the American people, whether Missouri shall be admitted with or without slavery into the Union; and whether the magnitude of the considerations involved in this question be considered, with a reference to the Union or to the state of Missouri, it must arrest the attention of every citizen who ever reflects on any topic connected with the common weal. When such a question is presented, little apology is due for any well meant endeavour to give a firmer front to that portion of public opinion already arrayed on the side of justice and policy. Such a cause, with those who duly appreciate it, will sanction even the most humble attempt in its support. No friends of such a cause will be disposed to blame his earnestness who ventures to enter a caveat, however feeble, against a course which he deems, in common with them, forbidden by every consideration of duty to ourselves no less than to the people of the territory immediately interested. - As the moment approaches which is to determine the fate of such a cause forever, we are naturally eager to seize and improve the short space that remains; our solicitude ever increases as that moment draws nearer, and we become proportionally anxious to minister every attempt that may be prompted by our hopes or apprehensions. This anxiety can scarcely lead to supererogatory zeal upon a topic of import so deep and vast as the present: but if it should, a zeal which led to well meant though superfluous labours in such a cause would, doubtless, merit and would meet with more of favour than of censure.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
