Klappentext

Excerpt from A Biographical Sketch of the Life of Ralph Farnham, of Acton, Maine: Now in the One Hundred One and Fifth Year of His Age, and the Sole Survivor of the Glorious Battle of Bunker Hill From His Excellency N. P. Banks, Governor of Massachusetts; His Honor F. W. Lincoln, Esq., Mayor of Boston; Hon. Edward Everett, and many others of the most distinguished citizens of Boston, to Mr. Ralph Farnham, The Sole Survivor of the Battle of Bunker Hill, to visit that city: The following correspondence, relative to the proposed visit of the venerable Ralph Farnham to the city of Boston, and the scene of his earliest struggles during the Revolutionary War, will be read with interest. The invitation sent by His Excellency Governor Banks was, as will be seen, signed by a great number of the leading citizens of Boston - by clergymen, literary men, and others; and Mr. Stevens generously placed comfortable apartments, in the Revere House, at the old gentleman's disposal. Mr. Ralph Farnham, Acton, Me.: We, being residents of the city of Boston, the scene of our earliest Revolutionary struggles, naturally feel a pride in everything that reminds us of the glorious days when our forefathers did battle for freedom. That generation has well-nigh passed away - you, in your 105th year, are one of the few connecting links which unites the present generation with that upon which the Independence of our country dawned, and the sole survivor of that gallant band who took part in the battle of Bunker Hill. We cordially invite you to visit Boston. We desire to see you - to shake hands with you, and to pay you that respect due alike to your patriarchal age, and to the part you took in the struggle which secured our National Independence.
