Excerpt from Speech of Mr. Plumer, of New-Hampshire, on the Missouri Question, Delivered in the House of Representatives of the United States, February 21, 1820The first of these conditions is, that the new state shall consist of a certain extent of territory, different from that proposed in their memorial, and different from that embraced within their present limits, and in both these respects differing from their request: the second is, that their constitution shall be republican: and the third, which is the object of the present amendment, that they shall prevent the further introduction of slaves, and that the offspring of those already there shall be free - These three conditions are made indispensable to their becoming, at this time, a member of the federal Union. Other terms are also proposed; but these are offered only as the price of certain other stipulations, into which it is desired that Missouri should enter. They are, by the same act, authorized to call a convention, to determine whether it is expedient for them, at this time, and upon these conditions, to become a member of the union. If so, they are permitted to form a constitution, and are to be received without delay into our confederacy.This act, then, is simply an answer to the request of Missouri; and, without her consent and acceptance, it can have no binding force or effect on either party. If, when met in convention, her delegates should deem it inexpedient to accept our terms, there is an end at once of our act, & of all the measures growing out of it. Either party may propose new terms, or both remain in their present condition. We do not, therefore, as has been so often asserted in this debate, undertake to form a constitution for the people of Missouri; we do not impose upon them terms and conditions, which are to bind them without their consent; nor do we, by this act, say that Missouri shall never be admitted, if she does not accept our present offers. We merely inform her on what conditions we are willing, at this time, to receive her into the Union.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
