Excerpt

The death of Mr. Webster, mourned throughout the whole country as a great national loss, fell with peculiar weight upon the community among whom he had so long lived; and the expressions of feeling which followed were proportionately numerous and emphatic. The object of the present volume is to gather up and preserve, in a permanent form, the various testimonials of respect to his memory which were called forth in Boston, whether by the City Government, or the various Associations of the citizens themselves. It was supposed that such a collection would be valued and cherished by the people of Boston and its vicinity, and not without interest to the community generally. The task of the editor has been little more than that of selection and arrangement. The account of the illness and death of Mr. Webster was drawn up by Mr. Ticknor, from notes and memoranda taken at Marshfield at the time.

G. S. H.

BOSTON, December, 1852.
