Excerpt from The New England Society Orations, Vol. 2: Addresses, Sermons and Poems Delivered Before the New England Society in the City of New York, 1820-1885
O trace the rise and progress of communities; to follow the fortunes and elucidate the character of those who have laid the foundation of new associations; to preserve from decay the memory of illustrious men, who have transferred from one hemisphere to another, the arts of peace, the blessings of liberty, and the con solations of religion; belong perhaps, to the province of history, rather than to a brief address, upon a special occasion. And yet, we who are now assembled, may with strict propriety, and not without a sense of just pride, cast our eyes back upon the events of the last two centuries, while we contemplate the ancestry from which we are sprung, and the causes which have led to our being here, this day, to present our grateful Offer ings upon the altar of our national existence.
