long as memory lives, let the names on this monument be sanctified in our hearts; and let it be used, moreover, to express our gratitude to all the skilful officers and brave men of the army and navy who achieved such decisive victories over the enemies of our country.

It proved, conclusively, that we had a New England, and a national character already formed in the souls of these patriots, lying silent and unseen till the country called for it; and, when it did call, it found these men to be intense Americans, intense New Englanders, intense Medfordites.

At this moment, they ask of us this bread: shall we give them a stone? This granite pillar seems to connect itself
