Overview

Excerpt from Forensic Speeches: Selected From Important Trials

The following collection, or rather selection, of the Forensic Speeches of the late David Paul Brown, are now presented to the legal profession and the reading public, in the belief that such a compilation would appropriately and acceptably meet the wishes of the many admirers and friends of the deceased.

Although a volume, possessing the main features of the present one, was in contemplation at the time of Mr. Brown's death, it is a subject of regret to the compiler, which will perhaps be shared by the reader, that the selections embraced in the following pages, were not in any way indicated by the deceased.

That responsibility, therefore, rests wholly with the Editor and if these selections do not appear always the most worthy of the orator or the reader, the blame should attach where it properly belongs.

No excuse can be necessary for this self-imposed task; yet, if one were needed, it might be found in an earnest desire to revive in some degree that love of eloquence which more particularly characterized the earlier days of the Philadelphia Bar, and made the name of a "Philadelphia Lawyer" proverbially synonymous with the highest excellencies of the profession.
