Klappentext

Excerpt from Speech Delivered in Faneuil Hall, Boston, October 27, 1857: Also, Speech Delivered in City Hall, Newburyport, October 31, 1857

I present myself before you, in this time and place, to discuss the political questions of the day, at the request of the Young Men's Democratic Association, who have been pleased to think that it was a duty, incumbent on me, to contribute my share of effort to the ob j ect of securing the full exposition of the issues, presently to be passed upon by the people of the Commonwealth.

Let me not be ashamed to confess, that, many times before as it has happened to me to speak from this very spot, I have not been able to look forward without solicitude to the present hour and its appointed task. I come to it now with unaffected self-distrust. I seem, to myself, to be awed into solemnity by the visible presence, as it were, of the Genius of Faneuil Hall.

Besides, if I speak at all, I cannot deal in commonplace, or in mere generalities, but must address myself to the living questions of the crisis, such as as palpitate in the bosoms of men, and occupy the common thought of the hustings, the workshop, the counting-room, the street, and the fireside. To speak thus, and thus only, is a necessity of my position not less than a point of honor.
