Excerpt from Joseph Rodman Drake Park: Address of James L. Wells, Representing the North Side Board of Trade at the Public Hearing by the Board of Estimate and Apportionment of the City of New York, September 16th, 1904

It is not an exaggerated expression to assert that the mutilation of any part of this historic cemetery would be vandalism of the worst kind and a lasting disgrace to The City of New York. Besides this, it certainly is the height Of irony that the name of a renowned Quaker poet should be given to a public road the construction Of which will destroy an Old Quaker graveyard and injure a brother poet's tomb.

The larger part of the Hunt Cemetery containing the graves of men distinguished for their zealous advocacy of principles cherished by every true American citizen will be totally obliterated by the con struction of Whittier Street as now laid out.

The North Side Board of Trade feels confident that it can appeal successfully to the patriotism of this Board to prevent this needless and reckless desecration.
