The speeches at the John Brown, the Walter Scott, and the Free Religious Association meetings had been printed, probably with Mr. Emerson sconsent. The other pieces included by Mr. Cabot, namely, the speeches on Theodore Parker, the Emancipation Proclamation, A braham Lincoln, at the Harvard Commemoration, Woman, the addresses to Kossuth, and at the Burns Festival, had not been published. All that were in Mr. Cabot scollection will be found here, although the order has been slightly changed. To these 1have added Mr. Emerson sletter to President Van Buren in 1838, his speech on the Fugitive Slave Law in Concord soon after its enactment, that on Shakspeare to the Saturday Club, and his remarks at the Humboldt Centennial, and at the dinner to the Chinese Embassy; also the addresses at the consecration of Sleepy Hollow Cemetery and at the opening of the Concord Free Public Library.
