Reconstructed Speeches in Autobiographies

I do not believe I should include reconstructed speeches in my autobiography. To me adding a speech that has been reconstructed to my autobiography is not the same as the original speech which would be in the author’s own words, and besides I doubt I would even want to include a speech that is not my own in my autobiography. Of course, if a certain speech meant a great deal to me I suppose I would include it in my autobiography, but only if it was completely necessary. I personally think autobiographies should be all about the author himself, not about other people’s works.
