PREFACE.

This volume presents the first publication of the famous lectures

of Governor Robert L. Taylor. His great popularity as an orator and

entertainer, and his wide reputation as a humorist, have caused repeated

inquiries from all sections of the country for his lectures in book

form; and this has given rise to an earlier publication than was

expected.

The lectures are given without the slightest abridgment, just as

delivered from the platform throughout the country. The consecutive

chain of each is left undisturbed; and the idea of paragraphing, and

giving headlines to the various subjects treated, was conceived merely

for the convenience of the reader.

In the dialect of his characters, the melody of his songs, and the

originality of his quaint, but beautiful conceptions, Governor Taylor's

lectures are temples of thought, lighted with windows of fun.
