Publishers' Note

Most of the following orations and addresses wer separately published soon after they were delivered, but several of them are now out of print. The eminence of the late Dr. Storrs as an orator upon special occasions has in the judgment of the publishers made it desirable to bring together in a single volume the most important of his written discourses. Others, which made an even deeper impression on the audiences which listened to them, like the two lectures on "The Ottoman and the Muscovite-Their long Duel," and the lecture on "European Libraries," were delivered from notes only, and cannot be reproduced.

The lecture on "Chrysostom" has never before appeared in print. Two or three briefer speeches are added from stenographic reports, as examples of his more informal and popular manner.
