Excerpt from Reply to Francis Brinley, on the Claims of Hon. John P Bigelow: As Founder of Boston Public Library

At the last meeting of this Club, a communication was read by our Secretary, written by Francis Brinley, of Newport, in which he criticised and controverted the claims of honorable john P. Bigelow to be regarded as the Founder of the Boston Public Library, so far as the idea of giving a certain fund, known as the Bigelow Donation, was original with himself. And it is, prima. Facie, a strange proceeding to find an ex-official, who must have passed, or is in the immediate vicinity of, his eighty-second life mile-stone, undertaking to assail the reputation of one to whom he confesses to have been, for a long time, a familiar and trusted friend; and doing this. Too, eight years after he, who might have replied to his charges and criticisms, has passed from sight. But, as politics make strange bed-fellows, so. Likewise, do the experiences and familiarities of life; and what a peculiar friend Francis Brinley must have been to John P. Bigelow, it will be the purport of this paper to prove.
