Excerpt from An Historical Address, Delivered Before the Citizens of the Town of Dedham, on the Twenty-First of September, 1836: Being the Second Centennial Anniversary of the Incorporation of the Town

We have assembled, sens and citizens of Dedham, in honor of the time when the long dull rule of rude uncultivated nature was first interrupted on this spot hy'the organization of a civi lized community. We commemorate the planting of institutions, the commencement of physical improvements, with whose growth and progress our family histories are intermingled, or in whose results our present fortunes and future hopes are interested. Heirs of a goodly heritage, we deem it a debt of common grati tude to remember the labors that acquired and preserved it for our enjoyment. On the last verge of one of those great periods by which human existence, collectively speaking, is measured, we would, ere overstepping its limits, reflect upon the past and thereby gather wisdom for the future. Upon the page Of histo ry, or in the village record, we find names, now the familiar ap pellations of our kindred or friends, associated with scenes and events that lie dim in the shadow which advancing time throws behind it, and the mind seeks the satisfaction of more distinct knowledge and clearer perceptions of them.
