There was something about her that interested him, and he inquired of the captain concerning her. He was informed that she was a slave belonging to a man on board, whom the captain pointed out, who said he was taking her to New Orleans to sell her, he having bought her for $160 in Northwestern Missouri, on the borders.

The members express a belief of their ability to fix upon a plan of preventing the secession of the Cotton States and restore harmony.
