HATEVER relates to our Martyr-President possesses undying interest. In this work, the Publisher has
aimed to snatch from oblivion some of the best of the many discourses and comments on Mr. Lincoln's life and character, by transferring them from the papers of the day to a worthy place in our permanent literature. The volume contains nothing heretofore published in a pamphlet or book form. The Table of Contents shows the breadth of the field from which the present sheaf has been gleaned; for, in forming the volume, the lines of party, sect, and nation, have been completely ignored. In binding these scattered leaves together into a memorial chaplet, the Publisher would show his respect for the memory of the Great Emancipator.
BOSTON, Sept. 9, 1865.
