On p. 1 is a speech by Lincoln about racial equality: “Lincoln on the ‘Equality’ of the Races. We present the following extract from Mr. Lincoln’s speech at Charleston on the 18th of September, as a sufficient reply to the silly twaddle of the Douglasites about his favoring the doctrine of negro equality: … I will say then that I am not nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races (applause) - that I am not or ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people, and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will for ever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality…” Offered with a two-page sheet of the Daily State Journal of the same day (pp. 3-4, mainly ads).
