ADDRESS DELIVERED BEFORE THE BALTIMORE LYCEUM, ATHENAEUM SOCIETY, WILLIAM WIRT SOCIETY, WASHINGTON LYCEUM, PHILO-NOMIAN SOCIETY AND FRANKLIN ASSOCIATION, LITERARY AND SCIENTIFIC SOCIETIES OF BALTIMORE, ON THE 4TH OF JULY, 1836. BY Z. COLLINS LEE, ESQ.

[Southern Literary Messenger, November, 1836.]

HAVING reason to be well aware of Mr. Lee’s oratorical powers, we were not altogether at liberty to imagine his Address, merely from the deep attention with which, we are told, its delivery was received, the impassioned and scholar-like performance we now find it upon perusal. Few similar things indeed have afforded us any similar pleasure. We have no intention, however, of speaking more fully, at this late day, of an Address whose effect must have depended so largely upon anniversary recollections. We allude to it now with the sole purpose of recording, in brief, our opinion of its merits, and of quoting one of its passages without comment.
