PAILADELPHIA, January 20, 1854. Rey. J. F. BERG, D. D.,
Dear Sir,-It is the wish of many hundred Christians who attended the debate just closed, that an authorized copy of the speeches which you delivered during that discussion should be published under your own supervision.
It is well known that the report issued by the Daily Register is, by no means, a fair representation of your arguments. Your enunciation was unusually rapid; and we believe that more than half again as much matter was presented by you as by Mr. Barker in any single speech, and yet he occupies far more space in the columns of the Register than your-self. Besides, your argument is not given by that paper as you presented it, in very many instances, and, in some, as the reporter acknowledges, it is not given at all.
