At eleven o'clock in the morning in Plattsmouth, the Nebraska Territorial Convention convened in the Campbell Hall with David L. Collier of Burt County in the chair.  The gathering declared itself unanimously for the Lincoln-Hamlin presidential ticket and the Homestead Act and against slavery in the territory.  It also renominated Samuel G. Daily for territorial delegate, after ten ballots, and adjourned late that evening.  (By John Osborne)
