Excerpt from Select Speeches of John Sergeant, of Pennsylvania
Tim publishers of this volume present it to the public, not measly as a testimonial of their sincere respect for a distinguished fellow citizen, but as 'an offering which they know will be most acceptable to the community at large. Itis an exalted duty to rescue from the precarious tenure of ephemeral publications the reputation of an eminent man, and with this view they have been induced to cause a volume of the public speeches of Mr. Sergeant to be pre pared, in order to give them the permanence they deserve to have, and of which, while scattered in detached pam phlets and periodicals, they could not be secure. The responsibility of the attempt is altogether with them. It was determined on, and has been made without consulta tion with Mr. Sergeant. The materials to which the pub lishers have had access, were scattered through congres sional reports and newspapers, and it has been with some difficulty they have been collected. They are believed however to be in every respect accurate.
