Brief mention: Kentuckians Divided on Question of Slavery

Here is a brief report in the January 11, 1862 Covington Journal,reprinted from the Cincinnati Gazette.

The general verdict is that Lovejoy had the better of all his antagonists in the debate to-day. The remarks of the Kentuckians show a divided opinion among them, a part preferring the Union destroyed rather than Slavery, and part holding the opposite ground. Wickliffe is of the former category, and Mallory of the latter.
