Excerpt from Letters for the People, on the Present Crisis

My Dear Friend: In reply to your letter, requesting me to give you my opinions of the signs of the times, and the bearings of the great national questions just, now to be settled, as they have been presented to my view at this point, - a point so deeply interested in both the subjects you inquire about, - I shall, for my own satisfaction, as well as to arrive at actual facts, give them a practical and minute, as well as philosophical examination.

Highly as you estimate the importance of these questions, you can not, and no man can, calculate a tenth of the influence they will exert to bless our land, if settled aright. We are passing a crisis, and, if our country and our Congress do their duty to themselves, to universal humanity, and to God, all will be well.

You inquire, How large in Nebraska? What are its soil and climate? Will it be admitted as a Territory this winter? Will it be free? Now, there are preliminary questions and side issues, which should be first disposed of, to come to a true understanding of the case; and, while I shall treat the two great topics in all my letters, viz:

Nebraska Territory - Shall it be free!

Pacific Railroad - where shall it be built!

I shall examine, in the first letter,

The position of Missouri, as regards Slavery - Slavery waning in Missouri - Size and importance of Missouri - Slavery unnatural to the State - Re-election of Thomas H. Benton - Why defeated - How re-elected - Internal improvements - States appropriations - influx of foreigners - Influence of foreigners on slavery:

And I proceed, as preliminary to the admission of Nebraska, to examine.

The social and political condition of the sovereign States of Missouri. This vast States, now the frontier of civilization and refinement for the Atlantic side of our Republic, is destined, before many years, to be the very center of the nation, in business, wealth, and population. The position of this States, geographically, is but poorly understood by the nation at large. Its northern boundary, if extended castward, would pass through the city of New York. Its southern boundary.
