e. Congregationalism blossoms in its bright, consummate flower here. I feel a peculiar interest in this principle. The first man, if you will allow me to go back for a moment,--the first man who bore my name this side of the ocean, said to his church at Watertown, when they proceeded to induct him to office because of his calling in England, If they would have him stand minister by that calling which he received from the prelates in England, he would leave them. When, a year later, Governor Winthrop went to Watertown to settle certain dissensions there, the church said to him, If you come as a magistrate you have no business here; if you come with authority from the court we have no business with you; if you come as friends from a neighbor church you are welcome. That was a fair representation of the original spirit of New England. When you initiated your church, you remembered it. Down to the present moment it has grown and unfolded, until at last you stand here with a platform

Lo, this event! Brewster and Carver and Bradford and Winthrop faced a New England winter and defied law for themselves. For us, their children, they planted and sowed. They said,--Lo! our rights are trodden under foot; our cradles are not safe; our prayers may not ascend to God. They formed a State, ans of our own day, he saw men good as their fathers; but he leaped beyond them, and died for a race whose blood he did not share. This child of seventeen years gives her husband for a race into whose eyes she never looked. Braver than Carver or Winthrop, more disinterested than Bradford, broader than Hancock or Washington, pure as the brightest names on our catalogue, nearer God's heart, for, with a divine magnanimity he comprehended all races,--Ridley and Latimer minister before him. He sits i

we walk backward, and throw over their memories the mantle of charity and excuse, saying reverently, Remember the temptation and the age. But Vane's ermine has no stain; no act of his needs explanation or apology; and in thought he stands abreast of our age,--like pure intellect, belongs to all time. Carlyle said, in years when his words were worth heeding, Young men, close your Byron, and open your Goethe. If my counsel had weight in these halls, I should say, Young men, close your John Winthrop and Washington, your Jefferson and Webster, and open Sir Harry Vane. The generation that knew Vane gave to our Alma Mater for a seal the simple pledge,--Veritas. But the narrowness and poverty of colonial life soon starved out this element. Harvard was rededicated Christo et Ecclesiae; and up to the middle of the last century, free thought in religion meant Charles Chauncy and the Brattle-Street Church protest, while free thought hardly existed anywhere else. But a single generatio
