BeschreibungExcerpt from The Statesman and the Man: A Discourse on Occasion of the Death of Hon. John Quincy Adams
The week that has passed since we were last assembled here has been one so marked with signal memories and events, that it would be impossible to leave it without notice. It is seldom that religion connects itself so distinctly both with our own thought and experience, and with the striking incidents of our nation's life. It is seldom that the associations of a single day, or a single week, have in them so much that presses solemnly upon the mind, and exalts it with a serious yet composed and joyful faith. The season, always greeted with the glad and loyal welcome of every patriotic heart, as the commemoration of the birth of our country's greatest man, has been rendered doubly memorable now, by the announcement which has made the nation's heart return in part from its fever-dream of war to the purer hope and glad anticipation of peace, and by the quiet and gentle departure from life of the most venerable and distinguished of our public men.
