The Intelligencer of the 13th inst: (biweekly of the 14th) has a speech of Mr. Letcher of Virginia delivered 2d. Aug: in which he charges that Mr. Wade & others with having voted for a fugitive slave law in Kansas & Nebraska. Mr. Wade owned it - like a man & Giddings squirmed.
This was in the 24th Sec: of McDunn’s bill for the reorganization of Kansas - as quoted & acknowledged it is a "flatfooted" fugitive slave law - it would seem to have been voted for by the Republicans generally. Will you have this thing carefully looked to. & send me the ayes & noes. I presume
