Many of the speeches listed under this head were arranged for speaking by the editor and so far as is known have not been published heretofore as declamations. Some of them have already appeared in whole or in part, but have been so little used and possess so much merit that they are included in this list. Nearly all of them have won prizes in contests.
Other things being equal, a new declamation has an advantage over an old one, but a new declamation of mediocre quality will hardly win over an older one of sterling merit.
The great consideration in choosing a declamation is to get one that suits you. If you are enthusiastic over it and feel that you would rather deliver it than any other speech you know of, you are most likely to be at your best.
