This pamphlet provides a vivid description of the scene, players, and proceedings of the initial sessions of the free-state government convened in Topeka. From Governor Charles Robinson's inaugural speech, the intent of the new legislature was clear: they convened in order to formulate a state government which would serve their political interests and would reflect the principle of "squatter [popular] sovereignty", since the existing territorial government was merely provisional and furthermore did not advance their free-state aspirations.

Date: March 4, 1856
