Washington, engaged in the active duties of journalism during an era of deep interest and political excitement, made the author acquainted with sources of information, and led to a daily observation of prominent men and important measures, the results of which have been used to make the running history of events, and of contemporaneous political leaders, as full as the nature of the work allowed.

Every important speech of President Johnson, with numerous minor though characteristic addresses, and every measure with which his name is associated, are represented here : together with views of debates in Congress and incidents connected therewith ; making, it is hoped, an acceptable contribution to the political history of the time, and a comprehensive picture of the life and labors, the mind and mettle of the Statesman upon whom at this moment the eyes of civilization are intently centered.

J. S. FORDHAM, N. Y., 1865.
