Overview

Excerpt from Address Delivered Before the Philomathean Society of the University of Pennsylvania: Thursday, November 1st, A. D. 1838

Relinquishing the path which my predecessors have pursued, I invite your attention to a subject that commends itself by its intrinsic interest, its patriotic associations, its moral and political value. It is a theme worthy of more minute illustration than can now be given to it: the origin of our Revolutionary Union - the recorded and traditionary history of the acts and influences that led to the convocation of the first Continental Congress, which met in Philadelphia in the month of September, 1774.

I do not pause to vindicate this choice. I am addressing an American literary association. Should what I have to say this evening fail to excite the interest which less practical themes in abler hands might produce, to me at least it will not be a matter of surprise. Neglected history has few charms.
