Resolutions and letters relate to the crisis, Compromise of 1850 and the Nashville Convention. One letter, signed by U.S. Senator Jeremiah Clemens and the entire Ala. delegation to the House of Representatives, is of particular interest. The delegation calls for the Governor's support in the stand against the Wilmot Proviso or any attempt by the Federal Government to limit slavery in the territories. Collier's handwritten response is also included. Resolutions from Va. and La. urging southern states to oppose federal restrictions as well as resolutions from northern states condemning slavery are also included
