Excerpt from Import and Value of the Popular Lecturing of the Day: A Discourse Pronounced Before the Literary Societies of the University of Vermont, August 3, 1942

I must acknowledge, that on a certain point, I have been hitherto resting in a mistake. And the prospect of appearing before you, as I do to-day, has most deeply convinced me of it. I had believed, that the expression of peculiar emotion, in which a speaker is wont to in dulge, on occasions like this, was but a preliminary our ish; a kind of prelude, - if I may use the figure, - serving both to conciliate the the attention and good-will of the audience, and to lubricate the finger-joints of the per former. But, I stand corrected. A host of old remem brances throng in upon me, exciting an unknown con ict of emotions - of humility, and gratitude, and pride, and brotherly sympathy. For, it was but yesterday that I was on this stage as one of you. I cannot help regard ing myself so still. And so I would be regarded. I am grateful and proud that I have not been forgotten, - that I have been invited to come up here and celebrate with you this literary festival. I love to be remembered by any body; especially by you, who are here convers ing with what I was wont reverently to converse; in mysterious communion with those same spirits which breathed into me hope and courage. And I love to in dulge the fancy, which, indeed, I cannot hinder, that Imomena, sometimes with longing, sometimes with dread always with wonder.
