Excerpt from The New American Speaker: A Collection of Oratorical and Dramatical Pieces, Soliloquies and Dialogues, With an Original Introductory Essay on the Elements of Elocution

I have proposed to myself, in this work, to put a better book in the hands of the student of oratory, than has yet been given to the public. There are already some excellent manuals on the subject: but I say it without the least invidious design, and in accordance with most teachers of elocution with whom I have conversed, that they are found inadequate to the purpose of instruction and copious illustration.

Many of these are almost entirely taken up with the dissection of the subject by minute technical details and numerous rules or, in the absence of all system and theory, they are a jumbled collection of illustrations, in which leanness and barrenness are very conspicuous.

The chief fault to be found with such books of elocution as I have met, is, that whereas the English language abounds with such a vast amount of the most fervid eloquence; with so many specimens of language wrought out with a concentration of thought and rhetorical power, that must strike fire from the coldest heart; with such high-wrought descriptions, and dra matic, passionate and powerful exhibitions of feeling these books of oratory seem to have stumbled on very little of all these and show up, for the most part, but a beggarly account of tame and dry pieces, with here and there a gem of pure water.
