21. Wendell Phillips, Review of Webster’s Speech on Slavery (Boston: J. B. Yerrinton and Son for the American A[nti]. S[lavery]. Society, 1850). (44 p.)

Exposition of a speech by Daniel Webster on slavery in the debate leading up to the Compromise of 1850. The author compares what Mr. Webster said about the fugitive slave law in that speech to statements he made in previous speeches, much to the detriment of Webster’s position as he articulated it in the recent speech. (The collection has another copy of this pamphlet in volume 92 [no. 30].)
