CLEMENT L. VALLANDIGHAM.
“Do right; and trust to God, and truth, and the people. Perish office, perish
PUBLISHED BY J. WALTER & CO.,
19 CITY HALL SQUARE,
Entered according to Act of Congress, in the year 1864,
BY J. WALTER & Co.,
In the Clerk's Office of the District Court of the United States for the Southern
District of New York.
The very large sale, last year, of an imperfect compilation of the speeches of the Hon. CLEMENT LAIRD VALLANDIGHAM, justifies the publication of the present full and authentic edition. And just now is the fitting moment to offer to the public the patriotic words of warning and wisdom which, for now nearly four years, have been not only rejected, but denounced as "treason.” Defeated armies, an enormous public debt, and intolerable taxation, a decaying commerce, ruined currency, and bankrupt country—these are indeed severe but most instructive schoolmasters.
The “ Biographical Memoir” prefixed was prepared by Mr. VALLANDIGHAM's brother, and is accurate. Every statement in it, personal or otherwise, can be strictly verified.
J. W. & Co. NEW YORK, July, 1864.
