PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.
HAVING been requested by the Syndics of the Press to prepare a new edition of the Speech as soon after Christmas as possible, I have revised the whole book, adding correcting and rewriting, as necessity suggested and time would allow. Of the many shortcomings of the edition no one can be more deeply conscious than myself: but while I claim the reader's indulgence I may add a hope that this second issue will be found more full and far more clear than the former one.
