Yankton, DT: Geo. W.Kingsbury, 1868. 14pp. Original printed wrappers. Light soil with one short tear to the front wrap, else near fine. A short address, but Governor Faulk addresses several interesting issues. He lauds the creation of Wyoming Territory as an antidote to the"...many turbulent and lawless individuals, who were, practically, beyond the control of civil law; and whose crimes were of such a startling character as to compel the better class of citizens to resort to measures, deemed unavoidably necessary for the protection of society, to reduce such refractory spirits to submission." (ie vigilantism) The Governor reports that Indians in the Territory remain friendly and show signs of progress, but he bemoans the setting aside of the Black Hills for Indian use over his objections. Additionally, he offers a description of the recently passed 14th amendment to the Constitution. A scarce territorial imprint. Item #26514
