Eulogies Delivered in the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States on the Life and Character of Hon. : John C. Calhoun, of South Carolina, Hon. Henry Clay, of Kentucky, and Hon. Daniel Webster, of Massachusetts (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Eulogies Delivered in the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States on the Life and Character of Hon.: John C. Calhoun, of South Carolina, Hon. Henry Clay, of Kentucky, and Hon. Daniel Webster, of Massachusetts True, the speeches which follow are the emanations of warm hearts in the hours of grief but the encomiums are not the less just, nor the facts imbodied the less striking. They were uttered in the moments of sadness and sorrow - in the hours when every generous man is willing to lay in the grave with its eminent victims every unkind and uncharitable thought; yet the public are ever ready to admit that each and all of these great men were capable of the high, the exalted, the sublime emotions of a patriotism, which, soaring toward Heaven, rises far above all mean, low, or selfish things, and is absorbed by one soul-transporting thought of the good and the glory of the country. It is believed the style of the work, and the embellishments, will be found to correspond with the interest of the theme.
