Excerpt from Discourse of Dr Breckinridge Delivered on the Day of National Humiliation, January at Lexington, KyThe first and greatest of these evils that we beseech God to avert, and that we should strive with all our might to prevent, is the annihilation of the nation itself, by tearing it into frag ments Men may talk of rights perpetually and outrageously violated they may talk of injuries that are obliged to be redress ed they may talk about guarantees without which they can submit to no further peace e and there is doubtless much that has force and much that is captivating to ardent minds in such expositions of our sad condition For what problem half so terrible was ever agitated upon which it was not easy to advance much on every side of it I will not consume the short time allowed to me in examining such views What I assert, in answer to them all is, that we have overwhelming duties and incalculable interests which dictate a special line of conduct, the chief aim of which should be the preservation of the Amer ican Union, and therein of the American nationAbout the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at forgottenbooksThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works
