Wendell Phillips, Theodore C. Pease, Speeches, Lectures and Letters of Wendell Phillips: Volume 2, Prefaratory note. (search)
romised a second volume to the present publishers. This collection, therefore, is intended as a partial fulfilment of his own purpose, no less than as an answer to the popular demand. It illustrates the wide range of time and topic covered by his interest and his eloquence. It begins with the earliest of his speeches, delivered nine months before the famous Lovejoy address which stands first in the other volume, and closes with his last public utterance, his tribute to the memory of Harriet Martineau. An interval of over forty-six years separates the two addresses. A glance at the table of contents shows how wide a variety of subjects has been treated. Beside his recognized leadership in the Antislavery movement, he stands forth as an early champion of other reforms,--Woman's Suffrage, the Labor Agitation, Temperance, and Penal Legislation. The lighter play of his genius is seen in his Letter from Naples and his Address to the Boston school children. His literary lectures ar

The old South meeting House (1876). An address delivered in the Old South Meeting-House, June 4, 1876, and revised by Mr. Phillips. It was in this building that he made his last public address,--the tribute to Harriet Martineau, which closes this volume,--December 26, 1883. Ladies and Gentlemen: Why are we here to-day? Why should this relic, a hundred years old, stir your pulses to-day so keenly? We sometimes find a community or an individual with their hearts set on some old roof or great scene; and as we look on, it seems to us an exaggerated feeling, a fond conceit, an unfounded attachment, too emphatic value set on some ancient thing or spot which memory endears to them. But we have a right to-day — this year we have a right beyond all question, and with no possibility of exaggerating the importance of the hour — to ask the world itself to pause when this nation completes the first hundred years of its life; because these forty millions of people have at last achiev

may lay one hand on the telegraph, and the other on the steam-engine, and say, These are mine, for I taught you how to study Nature. In a similar sense, as shackle after shackle falls from Irish limbs, O'Connell may say, This victory is mine; for I taught you the method, and I gave you the arms. I have hitherto been speaking of his ability and success; by and by we will look at his character, motives, and methods. This unique ability even his enemies have been forced to confess. Harriet Martineau, in her incomparable history of the Thirty years peace, has, with Tory hate, misconstrued every action of O'Connell, and invented a bad motive for each one. But even she confesses that he rose in power, influence, and notoriety to an eminence such as no other individual citizen has attained in modern times in Great Britain. And one of his by no means partial biographers has well said,-- Any man who turns over the magazines and newspapers of that period will easily perceive how gr

Harriet Martineau (1883). Remarks at the Unveiling of Miss Anne Whitney's statue of Miss Martuld indorse this memorial of the city to Harriet Martineau, because her service transcends nationalreat genius among women, it may be said of Miss Martineau, that she was the peer of the noblest, andb, it was a collection, or gathering. Harriet Martineau had been welcomed all over America. Sheone with God makes a majority. This was Harriet Martineau. She was surrounded by doctors of divinlittering banquets of social societies? Harriet Martineau, instead of lingering in the camps of thy of to-day. To this meeting in this hall Miss Martineau went, to express her entire sympathy with her journey, but not her principles. Harriet Martineau saw, not merely the question of free spel see its grand and beneficial results.

To E. Carpenter. West Boylston [Mass.], May 9, 1836. Abolitionism is rapidly growing respectable here, because the abolitionists are becoming more and more numerous. Since truth is thus made to depend on the voice of the majority, what a comfort it is to reflect that all majorities were minorities in the beginning. I cannot forbear to repeat to you an interview between Miss Martineau and Mrs.-- , formerly a fashionable friend of mine, deeply skilled in the small diplomacy of worldly wisdom. Mrs. said some things in disparagement of Maria Chapman, accompanied with the wise remark that women were not capable of understanding political questions. My friend Mrs.--, wishing Miss M. to take up the cudgel in defence of the rights of women, put her mouth to her ear-trumpet, and said, Ask Mrs. To repeat her remark to you! The lady somewhat reluctantly observed, I was saying, Miss M., that women ought to attend to their little duties, and let public affairs alone. Believe me, Madam

ses the chosen teachers of my mind to be profound statesmen and pious Christian Fathers. I never introduce to him any of my acquaintances of light character. I have a consciousness that fairies are not the most respectable company for a woman of my venerable years (I shall be sixty to-morrow), and it is only to a few that I manifest my predilection for such volatile visitors. Dear Sarah Shaw likes to see fanciful dancing on moon-beams, and when I write to her I sometimes caracole in a fashion that would make good, sensible Gerrit Smith wonder what had become of the wisdom of his sage friend . . I suppose George's indignation against England is not abated by her recent manifestations. I thought perhaps you would read Harriet Martineau's letter in the Standard aloud for his especial edification, and I amused myself with imagining its effect. I didn't know but it would make each particular hair on his head stand up on end, charged brimful with the electricity of righteous wrath.

leavage through all Boston society, leaving most of the more powerful or wealthy families on the conservative side. What finally determined me in the other direction was the immediate influence of two books, both by women. One of these was Miss Martineau's tract, The Martyr age in America, portraying the work of the Abolitionists with such force and eloquence that it seemed as if no generous youth could be happy in any other company; and the other book was Mrs. Lydia Maria Child's Appeal for icans called Africans. This little work, for all its cumbrous title, was so wonderfully clear, compact, and convincing, it covered all its points so well and was so absolutely free from all unfairness or shrill invective, that it joined with Miss Martineau's less modulated strains to make me an Abolitionist. This was, it must be remembered, some years before the publication of Uncle Tom's cabin. I longed to be counted worthy of such companionship; I wrote and printed a rather crude sonnet to
