ENTERED according to Act of Congress in the year 1856,
BY P. M. HAVERTY,
the Southern District of New York.
The publisher deems it necessary to state that some liberties have been taken with the original text of Madden's Life of Robert Em met, by leaving out some letters and other matter relating more properly to Thomas Addis Emmet, most of which, however, has been introduced in the memoir of the latter. Other slight alterations have been found necessary in order to render the history more clear and connected.
Valuable additions have been made to the work, in the shape of notes and extracts, from all recent authorities which could throw light on either the subject of the memoir, his times, or contemporaries.
The memoir of Thomas Addis Emmet has been taken almost verbatim from Madden and Haines, with additions from other sources where they could be introduced with advantage to the work.
