c.c*-,*INTRODUCTORY.
Recollecting the interest awakened in the minds
of those who heard the words of Joseph Pontus,
as spoken during the preparation of the memo-
randa following werefrom which the chapters
written, and ever recalling the request of my
comrades and friends of long ago, I have sacredly
originalpreserved the memoranda for many years
past.
If their use at this time serves to kindle in the
mind and heart of the reader, even a trifling
part of the interest created by their original de-
livery, I will be amply repaid for time spent and
work done, and shall enjoy the satisfaction of
having, to some extent, least,at contributed to
the entertainment and happiness of others.
