Excerpt from Washington, Vol. 2: The Capital City, and Its Part in the History of the Nation

Of the leaders at whose hands the Slavery ques tion was to have final and irrevocable solution.

Well up on the roll of this new group of statesmen stands the name Of Stephen A. Doug las, Of Illinois, who in 1847, after four years of service in the House, took the seat in the Senate which he was to occupy until his death. He was its youngest member when he entered the Senate, a short, thick-set man Of thirty-four, with a swarthy, clean-shaven face, and eyes which, in moments Of excitement, became as large and impressive as those Of Webster. His also was a mind capable Of grasping, analyzing, and elucidating the most complex and difficult subjects, either in the science Of law or that Of government, and to these qualities he added a gift for strong and simple speech, a courageous vigor, and a manly boldness which quickly made him a leader on the ?oor and a foremost figure in the councils Of his party.
