The circumstance which led to the publication of these Addresses, may be understood from the following correspondence.
“ 37, St. James's Place. “ MY DEAR SIR, “Some noblemen and gentlemen, who have observed with much interest, your exertions in defence of the Protestant Institutions of the kingdom, are desirous that the Speeches you delivered on various occasions, within the last year, should be collected and preserved in a permanent form; and are of opinion that their publication might render extensive service to the good cause in support of which they were spoken. In their behalf I am commissioned, and on my own I gladly accept the commission, to request that, in compliance with our wishes, you will publish a corrected report of those Addresses.
“Believe me, my dear Sir,
« WILLIAM VERNER.”
“ To the Rev. Mortimer O'Sullivan.”
“ MY DEAR SIR, “ I FEEL honored by the request you have conveyed to me, and am very grateful for the kind, although too flattering terms in which you express your desire that I should comply with it.
