Stephen Douglas continues his campaign with a whistle-stop train journey through up-state New York

Douglas and his wife arrived in Elmira, New York in the early morning hours and after an afternoon of speeches and receptions left for Canandaigua, New York by train.  Douglas made stops and short speeches along the way, stopping at Jefferson, Havana, and Pen Yan before reaching Canandaigua at the end of a punishing campaign day.  (By John Osborne)
