Excerpt from Select Speeches of John Sergeant, of Pennsylvania
This is neither the place nor the occasion, for an elabo rate tribute to Mr. Sergeant's character and services. It is as a public man especially that he is now looked to by the community with deep and increasing interest, and it is with a view to do justice to him in this respect, that this volume has been prepared. It is as little suited to the occasion, and to the ability of the publishers, to attempt to characterise his eloquence, as it has been developed in the legislature of the union. The same masculine intelligence and comprehensive grasp of mind, which originally gained for him professional distinction, enabled him at once on his entrance on a new sphere of action, to reach a high and proud eminence, which, in the course of a public life che quered by alternate triumphs and reverses, he has never abandoned, and which he will occupy so long as rich intel lectual endowment, and consistent patriotism can be appre ciated.
