The writer alerts his readers to a paper that is being circulated by an unknown author who says he is African American. The paper urges all African Americans to move to Oregon and petition Congress to set aside an area of this territory for an African American settlement. The writer tells his readers that this is evidently either a ploy to get African Americans to leave the city or a misguided person's ramblings.
