Mayor Glines said in part:— Somerville appears to-day in a dual role. She is both guest and hostess. She is honored, and, in turn, she bestows honor. Mayor Glines said in part:— Somerville appears to-day in a dual role. She is both guest and hostess. She is honored, and, in turn, she bestows honor. She invites His Excellency the Governor and His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor of this great commonwealth to participate in these ceremonies. She honors them by a reception such as only so patriotic a city can give, and feels herself honored indeed by the unusual compliment of the presence of both of these distinguis
ce to his memory, especially as regards the noblest work or deeds of his illustrious career. Mayor Glines, Governor Bates, and Lieutenant-Governor Guild made various fitting allusions to him in their to which I have referred, and which I think may well be repeated in this connection. Said Mayor Glines: ‘On the evening of June 16, 1775, this soil again resounded with the tramp of soldiers, as tof the thirteen American colonies in a common bond against British oppression.

To a citizen of Massachusetts called upon to sing her praises, it is a contemplation worthy of the best thought, the best mind, the best ability, and the best endeavor of which one is capable. I would that it were in my power to express to you tonight the thoughts that must come to us all, and which involuntarily will seek expression, despite the inability to adequately give them voice.
