Man this Missouri thing really has me confused...but I know who to call.
Dear Mr. Clay, I am writing to you about an urgent situation. Our country is in grave danger of collapsing due to this slave state free state mess. I require your specific skill set to work out this situation.
I believe I have a compromise that can make everyone happy. What if we add a free state and MIssouri becomes a slave state.
Missouri Compromise To appeal to both north and south states we will be admitting Missouri as a slave state and create a new state Maine to become a free state. All other stares will be decided by the 36 degree 30 degree line from now on. Henry Clay
