The following Tribute to the memory of your excellent Father, I respectfully dedicate to you. If it be not worthy Of the subject, its sincerity must in some measure, at least, atone for its defects. My acquaintance with him commenced many years ago, when, in your early days, he consigned the education of his two elder sons to my care. Called as I was, shortly afterwards, to a different field of labor, my interest in him and in you has never ceased; and while I rejoiced at his well earned prosperity, I could not feel a less degree of joy in seeing the early promise of the sons ripening into a character — worthy of the father. Should I fail in my attempt to do justice to his memory, I trust that my endeavor to make his successors better known will not be wholly in vain.
