Excerpt from General Armstrong's Life and Work

As we meet here this afternoon, our thoughts are invited to con template both a face and a man - a weak race brought by cruel greed in fear and anguish to this continent, kept weak and denied intellec ual progress,_he1d' in fetters by the power of an ever-growing and at last mighty government - a strong man who, coming up among a feeble folk, imbibed the love for humanity from his mother's breast, and, sail ing to his father's country for education, gave his young, vigorous life to fight for the country of his fathers until that fight was won, and then took Upon his heart and mind the weak and helpless race whose fetters had been suddenly removed, making them through ignorance and degradation a menace to the well - bein'g of the republic. Look at the cargoes of Africans moving westward yea? After year in the sti?ing h o l d s of slow-sailing' s h ip s, dumped in Chains upon the east ern shore, multiplying inhelpless dependence over all these beauti ful valleys and plains. Does it not move you to ask, Where is God Wait, my friends. By and by, from an island in the western ocean,' a swifter ship shall sail eastward With a young man on board, of large powers, but almost without purpose save that he will follow his Master, Christ, wher ever He leads,whoshall be trained in college and war to lift this peo ple into useful service who. Shall be the great pioneer in transform ing the misdirected instincts of a debilitated race into the fine, free, organic powers of American citi zens. We can never forget the sufferings and sorrows of those helpless ones through the long years of a century and a half. Nor can we forget the anxieties and fears and the heart-searchings as to duty of those among Whom they lived. The faithful record of that history we leave withigod, and praise Him that when' the day of deliverance came, the teacher, leader, helper, uplifter, also came.
