I wish there would be slaves in the new state of Missouri so the northern states won't have as much power in the senate
I wish there wouldn't be slaves in the new states of Maine so the southern states won't have as much power in the senate
We will create a compromise as a temporarily solution that satisfies both of your needs
I don't want the northern states to gain power in the senate; everytime a free state is added I want a slave state
I don't want the southern states to gain power in the senate; states north of the parallel 36 degrees 30' north (also known as the Missouri Compromise Line) should be a free state
This shall be the Missouri compromise then, balance the power of the states in the senate and no states north of the Missouri line shall be a slave state
