Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Editor's Preface. On Monday evening, January 5th, Dr. William Elder, an old Philadelphian, but now a resident of Washington City, delivered at the hall of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, at Philadelphia, a memoir of Henry C. Carey. In his lifetime Mr. Carey had committed to his old friend, Dr. Elder, a memorandum of the leading incidents in his life, including his numerous contributions to economic literature and the circumstances which led to their preparation. This information Mr. Carey desired Dr. Elder to embody in a paper to be given to the public after Mr. Carey's death, together with such analysis of his life-work in the field of political economy as Dr. Elder, from his perfect familiarity with that work, might feel prompted to make. The event which took place at the hall of the Historical Society on Monday evening last fully justified the wisdom of Mr. Carey's selection of a critic and biographer. The hall was crowded with one of the most refined and scholarly audiences ever gathered in Philadelphia, and the address with which Dr. Elder for almost two hours entertained it was a most eloquent, appreciative, exhaustive, and learned tribute to the memory of his old friend. That no more fitting selection of a memorialist could have been made is the general opinion of the many friends of Mr. Carey who heard the address. Some of its passages were of classic grace and elegance. The memoir is published herewith.
