New Haven Daily Palladium, March 7, 1860. The editors have corrected a few typographical errors in the remarkably well printed Palladium text. Brackets are in the source unless otherwise noted. Newspaper comment on the speeches at Meriden, Connecticut (March 7), Woonsocket, Rhode Island (March 8), Norwich and Bridgeport, Connecticut (March 9 and 10), indicate that Lincoln repeated this speech substantially at each place, and the only complete report of any of them---the speech at Norwich printed in the Norwich Weekly Courier, March 15---is admittedly a copy of the Palladium's report of the New Haven speech.
