As a memorial of veneration and gratitude to the “MAN OF THE Age,” this volume is presented to the Public. In selecting its contents from the numerous Orations delivered on the death of this illustrious character, the Publishers have been guided less by their own, than by public opinion.
Many Orations, probably of equal merit with those contained in this volume, have from necessity been omitted. They have aimed to take some of the most valuable that have been delivered in differ ent States.
Copyrights of many of the Eulogies and Orations inserted in this volume, have been secured according to Law.
