RALPH WALDO EMERSON
New York: 11 East Seventeenth Street
The first five pieces in this volume, and the Ed. itorial Address from the “ Massachusetts Quarterly Review” were published by Mr. Emerson, long ago. The speeches at the John Brown, the Walter Scott, and the Free Religious Association meetings were published at the time, no doubt with his consent, but without any active co-operation on his part. The “ Fortune of the Republic ” appeared separately in 1879: the rest have never been published. In none was any change from the original form made by me, except in the “Fortune of the Republic,” which was made up from several lectures for the occasion upon which it was read.
