Excerpt from An Oration, on the Material Growth and Territorial Progress of the United States: Delivered at Springfield, Mass; On the Fourth of July, 1839

We have reached, in tlie progress of time another Anniversary of the Independence of the United States. That gracious Providence, which led our forefathers hither in the pursuit of civil and religious liberty for them and their children; which watched over them in the first feeble beginnings of their political existence; which nurtured and fostered their infant commonwealths into the bone and gristle of manhood; which nerved their souls for the issue when the dread struggle for separate nationality came on; which in that crisis of their fate gave patriotism to their councils and victory to their arms, and which guided their noble efforts to lay the foundations of the great fabric of constitutional freedom we inherit from them, - that good Providence has continued to smile upon our country, and permitted us at this day to be the witnesses and the partakers of its grandeur and prosperity.

Thanks be to God, then, above and before all, - to Him, the author and the finisher of so good a work, - thanks be to Almighty God, - thanks from a thousand altars and from millions of grateful hearts, be sent up to Heaven this day, for the unequalled blessings vouchsafed to our fathers and to us!

And our highest and first duty of cheerful acknowledgment and thanksgiving to God discharged, it becomes us that we next do fitting honor to those pure and wise men, the agents of His will in the colonization, establishment, growth and stability of these United States. To govern, it has been said, a society of freemen, by a constitution, founded on the eternal rules of right reason, and directed to promote the happiness of the people and of every individual, is one of the highest prerogatives which can belong to humanity. But is it not more glorious still, to originate, to invent, to found, to establish into all future time, such a constitution of government? Surely, insomuch as the creator is above the thing created. Men, in general, are the fruit of the subsisting facts, amid which they find themselves to be born and bred. In general, it is the chief task of the good and patriotic of each successive generation, to preserve, promote, extend and improve the social institutions transmitted to them by their progenitors.
