Excerpt from Official Report of the Fourth American Tyler Family Gathering: Held at Willard's Hall, Washington, D. C., Wednesday, September 13, 1899

The chairman pro tem then Welcomed the clan to the city in the following eloquent words: Ladies and Gentlemen of the Tyler Family: A great author has one of his characters say, I belong to a family with which one might be proud to be connected even in its remotest branches. When I see this audience of fair women and brave men here assembled, when I realize that in making the early settlements either on the bleak shores of New England or on the sunny shores of Virginia the Tylers were worthily doing their part; that when it became necessary to scale the Heights of Abraham they were climb ing with the rest; that when Louisburg was captured they were doing their part'; that in the Revolution they were always in the thickest of the fray; that in the Civil War, each upon the side he considered right, they poured forth their blood like water; I am bound to acknowledge that we belong to a family with which one might be proud to be connected even in its remotest branches. This, then, is the family which to day Washington welcomes. Washington, the capital, the city which numbers among its inhabitants the great representative men of the United States, adopts you, . Gives you the freedom of the city, makes you its own people and thus places you among the great representatives of the nation.

England calls Gladstone its grand old man; we call our family Presi dent our grand young man; and I now have the honor of presenting to you one of the grandest representatives of one of the most noted families of the greatest nation on earth, Professor Lyon G. Tyler of Virginia.
