her of the volumes already published. It will follow his steps through contumely and hatred to honor and triumph such as few orators have known. It will set in strong relief the pure and lofty ideal of conscience and citizenship which he maintained to the end, untouched by flattery and undaunted by threats. In connection with these earlier volumes, it will prove, it is hoped, a full and trustworthy record of the orator and agitator, and an enduring monument to his work and fame. The editor and publishers return their grateful acknowledgments to Mr. J. M. W. Yerrinton, the lifelong friend of Mr. Phillips, to whose skilful pencil the abiding memory of his eloquence is so largely due. The likeness of Mr. Phillips in this volume is taken from the portrait painted for the late John C. Phillips, Esq., by Mr. Frederic P. Vinton, whose kindness and courtesy in allowing its use will be appreciated by the readers as well as by the publishers. Theodore C. Pease. Boston, April, 1891.
Wendell Phillips, Theodore C. Pease, Speeches, Lectures and Letters of Wendell Phillips: Volume 2, Epigraph. (search)
Epigraph. Knight-errant of unfriended Truth, he blew His magic note that charmed the air to song Before grim castles, and to frowning Wrong Flung down his gauntlet. Giant Error flew, Full-armed, to crush him; but his falchion true Smote the foul monster prone the earth along. Meat from the eater, honey from the strong, Not he, but others, through his conflict drew. Alert, unwearied, with his lance at rest, What wonder he should win where others fail? Each high emprise led up to farther quest; No selfish rust bedimmed his shining mail: Of all our Table Round the purest, best,-- Our Galahad beheld the Holy Grail! T. C. P. Boston, April, 1891.
