The Speeches of Henry Clay, Vol. 2 of 2 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Speeches of Henry Clay, Vol. 2 of 2It will be seen that the great speech delivered by Mr. Clay, February 5th and 6th, 1850, on his Resolutions of Compromise, is given in the Appendix of the third volume of this work, entitled the Last Seven Years of Mr. Clay's Life. There are also some brief extracts, in the Appendix to that volume, of Mr. Clay's speeches on the Compromises of 1850. But the last part of this volume, beginning on page 391, contains all the most important speeches of Mr. Clay in the Thirty-first Congress, with the exception of that of the 5th and 6th of February, 1850. As the editor found occasion to interweave numerous notes between speeches and parts of speeches, delivered in the Thirty-first Congress, the introductions to these speeches are more brief, their place being supplied by the notes.The editor has given, in his selections from the debates of the Thirty-first Congress, many brief replies and rejoinders of Mr. Clay, which are not properly speeches; but nevertheless too interesting to be omitted. Mr. Clay was often excited, in those debates, to make replies and rejoinders of a very spicy character, and some of them are extremely interesting and instructive. Many of Mr. Clay's most brilliant displays of intellect and power were occasioned by momentary excitement; and he never, in his long-protracted career of public life, shone brighter, and never was more powerful in debate, than in the long contest of 1850.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
