JOURNAL OF THE STATE CONVENTION OF SOUTH CAROLINA; TOGETHER WITH THE RESOLUTION AND ORDINANCE. PRINTED BY ORDER OF THE CONVENTION. 45pp, untrimmed and uncut [with a few short margin tears]. Stitched, original printed wrappers. Text is clean and free of marks. Whaley of Edisto Island, S. One of the delegates to the convention! As in 1832 and 1860, South Carolina jumped the gun on her southern sisters by her call for appointment of deputies to this Convention to consider secession. This pamphlet reports on the Convention and its proposed secession ordinance, and provides a list of members. Printed also is the dissenting opinion of B. Perry, the prominent Unionist. Howes says that this item declares that this state has the right- and sufficient cause- to secede from the Federal Union and that she forbears from exercising such right only from considerations of expediency. Marks the evolution of States Rights opinion, from mild nullification to the final break. A truly beautiful copy of this important work.
