Excerpt

These lectures were delivered at Harvard at the instance of the Corporation and Overseers of the University, who did me the honor to appoint me Lecturer on Protective Tariffs for the year 1884-5, with the duty of delivering four lectures on that subject. I desire to acknowledge the courtesy with which President Eliotand his colleagues in the Faculty permitted me to make such an arrangement as would least interfere with my duties at home, and the kindness which made my stay at Cambridge one of the pleasantest experiences of my life. I also have to thank my colleagues in the University of Pennsylvania for their assumption of much of my work in my absence.

In preparing these lectures for the press, I have followed my notes of preparation, rather than my recollection of what I found time to say in the hour's space assigned for each lecture. The second lecture in particular greatly exceeds what could be delivered in that space of time. In the third lecture I have changed the mode of presenting the main point, in accordance with suggestions derived from a conference with a very intelligent young gentleman who discussed the matter with me afterwards in the rooms of my host, Prof. Palmer. But the lectures are substantially what I delivered to the evening audiences in Sevier Hall.

PHILADELPHIA, January 4th, 1886.
