Summary: John A. Halderman appears to have written this proclamation, signed by numerous other "residents and citizens" of Leavenworth County, Kansas Territory, calling upon the people of the county "to support at the coming election for members of the constitutional convention" at Lecompton a slate of twelve named delegates. The document assures the citizenry that the "undersigned" and their chosen delegates are committed to a fair process that will allow the people to vote to accept or reject any proposed constitution and to vote separately on the question of slavery.
