Strana 51 - It is agreed that any country that may be claimed by either party on the northwest coast of America, westward of the Stony Mountains, shall, together with its harbors, bays, and creeks, and the navigation of all rivers within the same, be free and open for the term of ten years from the date of the signature of the present convention, to the vessels, citizens, and subjects of the two Powers...
Strana 44 - British possessions on the north, to the Gulf of Mexico on the south, and from Mississippi River on the east to the Rocky Mountains on the west.
Strana 161 - To lay with one hand the power of the government on the property of the citizen, and with the other to bestow it upon favored individuals to aid private enterprises and build up private fortunes, is none the less a robbery because it is done under the forms of law and is called taxation.
Strana 217 - ... shall not be so construed as to apply to the Territory contemplated by this act, or to any other Territory of the United States; but that the citizens of the several States or Territories shall be at liberty to take and hold their slaves within any of the Territories of the United States, or of the States to be formed therefrom, as if the said act, entitled as aforesaid, and approved as aforesaid, had never been passed.

Strana 318 - The conspiracy is now known. Armies have been raised, war is levied to accomplish it. There are only two sides to the question. Every man must be for the United States or against it. There can be no neutrals in this war; only patriots — or traitors.
Strana 308 - I am killing larger game ; if Douglas answers, he can never be President, and the battle of 1860 is worth a hundred of this.
Strana 217 - I do solemnly swear that I will support the organic laws of the provisional government of Oregon, so far as said organic laws are consistent with my duties as a citizen of the United States, or a subject of Great Britain, and faithfully demean myself in office.
Strana 213 - That the constitution and all laws of the United States which are not locally inapplicable, shall have the s*ame force and effect within the said territory of Nebraska as elsewhere within the United States...
