Excerpt from The American Orator: Comprising a Collection, Principally From American Authors, of the Most Admired Specimens of Congressional, Forensic, Pulpit and Popular Eloquence; With Dialogues and Poetical Extracts, Adapted to Public Recitation

The compiler of the subsequent pages claims but a very small share of merit in the work; but thinks it a duty to himself, to apprize the reader of some of the disadvantages under which it was executed. It was printed nearly thirty miles distant from his residence, and the pun was started before one sheet was fully prepared. He was, therefore, obliged to keep pace with the printer, in seeking and tran scribing the selections, and at the same time reviewing the proof sheets, which were sometimes miscarried, and, in one or two instances, not received at all without snfering any part of the business to interfere with his daily avocations.

These circumstances are only mentioned as an apology for some of the errors which the reader may probabl y dis cover in the work; but, which, it is hoped, are neither nu merous nor important. The printing was conducted with unusual correctness; but there are, nevertheless, some few typographical errors, perhaps more than are corrected in the Errata, which must be ascribed to the oversight of the compiler alone, under the circumstances already mentioned.

He has, however, the consolation to believe, that thv.i Autumn: 011117011 will he of considerable service to the cause of education, especially in that particular sphere for which it is intended.
