Excerpt from A Discourse Delivered at Williamstown

Mr. President and Brethren Alumni:

The American people are much given to the celebration of anniversaries. To say nothing of those that recur annually, as the Fourth of July and Washington's Birthday, has a man been married, or a minister settled, five, or ten, or twenty-five, or fifty years: has a battle been fought at one of these intervals: has a town been settled or an institution founded fifty, or a hundred, or two hundred and fifty years, there must be a celebration, a gathering, congratulations, sometimes gifts, sometimes a dinner, always a speech.

From this tendency the calls upon me have been exceptionally numerous.
