Excerpt

The lithographed letter facing the portrait in this book, is inserted as a specimen of Mr. Choate's singular and celebrated hand-writing. It happens, also, to authenticate the friendly relations which subsisted between the subject and the author of this work, and to that extent is the writer's credentials to the reader for the authenticity of these Reminiscences.

None of Mr. Choate's speeches are given in this book, as, the whole body of them, it is expected, will be published by his family.

Many of his forensic arguments, however, are given; as some of them are preserved, it is believed, only in the notes here published, and all of them are scattered, and difficult to find.

To those gentlemen of the Bar who have sent him their memoranda of several of Mr. Choate's arguments, the author desires to express his grateful acknowledgments.
