Selected Speeches Of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I

Editor's Note

This online edition of the Emperor's Selected Speeches has been created to benefit the sons and daughters of the Ras Tafari faith. It is an aid to the edification of the Ras Tafari nation that proceeds from close attention to the thoughts and testimonies of the Emperor. It is our hope that it will be replicated indefinitely from multiple locations, online and offline; to which end archives of the HTML (web) and the RTF (print) files have been provided.

A few things need to be noted with regard to the text. Some punctuation has been added or corrected when necessary, and spellings have been made consistent across the text. A few typesetting errors have been corrected, and the changes have been footnoted on the relevant page. No other alterations have been made to the text of the Emperor's speeches as they appear in English. The photograph from the frontispiece has been reproduced on the title page online.

This work was initiated with the financial aid of my brethren in the faith, Michael Bockenek; a more supportive partner no man could demand. I owe a debt of gratitude also to my brethren in the faith, Ernestas Jancenkas, who did proof reading of the drafts. I alone, however, am responsible for any errors that may be in this edition.

Finally, as none of our efforts can reach a fruitful conclusion without the gracious blessing of His Majesty, my eternal thanks and praises for the completion of this edition are offered to our divine majesty, Emperor Haile Sellassie I, God and King.
