Boston-born Ralph Waldo Emerson lost his father, a Concord minister, when he was eight years old, leaving the family in difficult circumstances.
Emerson talents as an orator are not in his persuasiveness, but in his ability to move his lips while saying nothing at all. The reviewer remarks that he would have made a grand lawyer.
