This is a political book. The Fugitive Slave Law was enacted by Congress in September, 1850, received the signature of HOWELL COBB, [of Georgia, ] as Speaker of the House of Representatives, of WILLIAM R. KING, [of Alabama, ] as President of the Senate, and was 'approved, ' September 18th, of that year, by MILLARD FILLMORE, Acting President of the United States.
