Excerpt from Proceedings at the Fourth Annual Dinner of the Republican Club of New York City: Held at Delmonico's on the Eighty-First Anniversary of the Birthday of Abraham Lincoln, February 12, 1890
The dinner was prefaced by grace, said by the Rev. Dr. Virgin, pastor of the Pilgrim Congregational Church: Almighty God, our Heavenly Father, God of our fathers, we thank thee for the blessings of thy bounty, thy provi dence, and thy grace. We recognize thee as the author of those multiplied comforts that abound in our homes, the in creasing prosperity and fruitful industries that exalt our be loved land. We praise thee that thou hast in every hour of need raised up men specially endowed for the work committed to their hands, and as we gather about these tables to cele brate at this time the birthday of a great soul, we ask that we may be so impressed with thy goodness that we shall go hence more thoroughly to prize the memory of the great leader, and more confident in thy goodness and mercy for all the years to come. For the great Redeemer's sake. Amen.
