In all auction copies we have seen, these pages are also lacking, and it would seem that the publisher often did not include them. However, in this copy, there is an additional leaf to the rear, which has substantially the same information. This leaf is dated 1799. It would seem that by 1799, the publisher was still binding up the second edition, but with an updated "author's works" to the rear.

Orations were given annually in Boston, often called "municipal Orations"; typically two or more addresses were given. The impetus for the tradition of municipal orations in Boston stemmed from an act passed at a town meeting in March 1783, when it was decided that the annual celebration of commemorating the Boston Massacre of March 5, 1770, be replaced with a yearly Independence Day celebration.

This work, first published in 1930 under the original title La Peur shows strong autobiographical elements. It tells the story of a young man, who inspired by the euphoric mood of France in 1914, signed up to fight. Chevallier wrote about trench warfare with an honest, open, but also bitter undertone. It is appropriate that the work was published by Arbeiderspers - the Dutch Socialist publisher. This copy was from the archives of the publisher, and bears a stamp to this effect on the half title page. In later editions, the work was entitled 'Heldenangst' - 'Heroic Fear' 22cm x 16cm. 284pp.
