Cliristopher Wren, and recently carefully restored.

The motto over the entrance to the Guild Hall is "Flo-
reat semper civitas fidelis," ]\Iay tlie faithful city alwa}'s
prosper. Ours, 3.1r. President, is a faitliful city; it has
been faithful in war and in })ei;ce. It was faithful
to the government in the civil war, in the v/ar of 1812,
and in Shavs's rebellion. It was fadthi'ul to liberty in the
earlier war of tlie Revolution. Li times of peace, too, it
has been loyal to the go^■ernment and to duty.

Of our city, then, we may say '-Floreat semj)er civitas
fidelis," and oL this society which is so large a part of the
life of the city, our hearts move us to say "Fioreat semper,"
May it liourisli forever.

?Jr. President, as tlie representative of the Libraries of
the city of Worcester, and of the forty or fifty public li-
braries 01 the county of Worcester, I greet 3-ou to-night.
^^'ould you have a salutation, too. from over the ocean?
I have not tlie right possessed by a former minister of the
Old South Church to place after my name tlie cabalistic
letters F. 11. S. L., but for several years I have been entitled,
had I chosen to avail myself of the privilege, to add to
to roy signature the letters F. R. llist. S.

Mr. President and Gentlemen, ^lembers of the Society
of Antiquity, I bring }0u the greeting of the Royal His-


torical h^ociety of Great Britnin this evening, as you are
passing- out of the years of infancy and earlier eliildliood
irito those of blooming boyhood. What a elnldhoud yours
has bet-n. Wliy, sir, a large portion of tlie libraries which
I represent consists of volumes this societ}" has issued to
hold an account of its proceedings and documents relating
to the earlier histrjry of this town. When we consider the
value of tlie contents of these volumes we find that they
form a very important part of our collections.

The value of the study of local history cannot be over-
estimated. We all believe th.at if we would do well the
work which we have to do to-day we must be guided by
the lessons Mdiich history has to teach.

Ilovr can an intnTt/sr be so well awakened in the study
of history generally as by arousing an interest in family
and local history?

Suppose, for example, one of us has an ancestor who
was a loyalist at the opening of the revolutionary ^\■ar.
He wishes to enter into tlie feelings of his ancestor and
tries to appreciate the struggle that vrent on in liis mind
as he considered whcihcr he should remain faithful to the
king and government which he had always served, and
from which lie b-^lieved he had received great benefits, or
whether in consideiation of the fact that the government
had bcrn unjust to him and to jiis countrymen, he should
engage in acts of overt rebellion. In trying to understand
liow Ir.s ancestor felt, the investigator is led to inquire
into the feelings of all classes of persons in town, couniy,
state and country. Then he v.dshes to acquaint himself
with the feelings of the inhabitants of Great Britain. lie
is led to study the causes of the revolution and its conse-

Beginning with eon.paratively small things, liis interest
broaden^ and he learns lc.-:Sons of the utmost importance
to liim in the guidance of j-ublic and private affairs. Or


some one feels an interest in tlie history of one of our older
churches and is led along rapidly to an interest in the his-
tory of other societies in the town, and of churches
throughout tlie state. An interest awakens in Pilgrim
and Puritan, in this country and in the mother country,
and in the Calvanistic churches of France and Hulland.
The churcli of iMigland )nusi then be studied. Then
comes the church of I tome and an interest in Ecclesiasti-
cal history gcneially.

^Iv. President, as I am addressing the Society of An-
tiquit}', a single liist(U'ieal fact may lie deemed acceptable.

About the year 1790, Stephen iJurrows, tlie counterfeiter
and jail-bi-ealier, kvpl school in Cliarlton in tins cou]}ty.
His scliool was very successful, if we may trust his own
account, but it became a])parent after a wliile that he had
become too free in Ids intercourse ^\•ith some of the oirls
under his charge. He was brought to Vforcester, tried
here in tlie Supreme Court in ]7'Jl, convicted of three of-
fences, and sentenced to receive for each of them thirty-
nine lashes, one hundred and seventeen ii' all, at our whip-
ping post, to stand in the iiillor}' for two liours, upon the
gallows with a rope around his neck for an hour, and to be
imprisoned in our jail i'uv thi'ee monllis.

When Ins sentence had been partially executed Bur-
roughs broke jail ajid disappeared.

Afterv/ards, in 1791, we hear of him in a town on Long
Island v.diere lie was teaching school.

It has been generally known that Stephen. Burrouglis Vv'as
a preacher, a school-nuaster, a counterfeiter, a jail-breaker
and a loose character generally, but it was reserved for
IMr. Cliarles Fi'ancis Athims, Jr., to point out the fact that
he v/as also tlic founder of a public library.

While on Long Island, he states in hisaurobiograjtliy, that
he found tliat some of his scliolars v.dio atteiided the
cvem'ng school liad " bi-ight abilities" and thiisted for


knowledge. So lie thought it would be au excellent
thing to give tlieni access to ])ool:s l)y founding a
library m the tovrn in which he was living. Tie
called on the minister to get his apjn-oval of the project.
He replied tluit the people "had no idea of the benefit of
books," and that he had tried to get up a library and had
failed, adding tluit he did not believe that Iku'rouglis would
succeed in inducing the townspeople to subscribe the
amount of money needed.. lUirroughs tlien consulted a
layman who said he did not think the people were so in-
different in regard to the nuitter of liaving a library as
had been represented. He said he tliought the trouble
was that the}' believed if the minister started and man-
aged it they would nut like tlie selection of books that
he would nuike. Acting on this suggestion, Bun-oughs
went about the town and soon collected the sum of money
needed. Kext came a meeting of subscribers to make
rules for the government of tlie libraiy, arrange for
the selection of Ijooks and attend to other matters. A
committee was appointed to prepare a list of books, of
which the minister and Burroughs were both members.
At the first meeting of the coinmiitee the miiuster an-
nounced that he had loobed over the catalogues of the
publishers in New York, and had selected the best books
from them.

The fears of the people WL-re justified. I v,ill not detain
you to read the li-t of liooks proposed for purchase. Suf-
fice it to say that the ^^■orks were all of a very serious
character. Burroughs secured a postponement of action.
At a subsequent meeting of the committee different mem-
bers presented li-ts. Tim ministi;r"s books were theologi-
cal, religious or ethical, consisting of such works as
"Edwards ag.^ill^t Chauney," History of IJedemjition. etc.
A deacon's li-^t was made up of a similar kind of books.
He wished for a pum))hk-t containing "Essays on the

. 69

Divine Authority for Infaiii; Bapti.-m," "Terras of Cliureh
Coinniunion," etc. Tlie doctnv asktd for books that were
soiiiewliat lighter, and lUuToiighs pleaded for Plutareh'j;
Lives, Kollin's Aneit'iii Ilistoj'v and otlier histories. No-
body asked for novels. Inil Inirroughs ^^•as aceused, he says,
of attempting to corrupt i!.e morals of the eonnnuniiy by
proposing histoiies instead of works of controversial di\'in-
ity. Finally a lis.t was agreed upon by compromise, and
the library was opened.

I Mill not undertake to give its histor}-. ]\Jark this
fact, hov.-ever, Stephen Ijurrouglis tried to do on Long
Island long before the \Vuree.>ier Lycuum (1829.) and tlie
Worcester Co. Atheneum A\'L're foundt-d, the \\-ork ^^■hich
we are trying to do to-day at the Public Libj'ary, namely,
that of Uiaking the institution useful to tcachej's and.

Surely, gcjitlemen, theif is nothing new under the sttn.
]Mr. President, I close as 1 began by lireseniing to you tlie
c^mgj'atulations of the libraaies of this city and county.
'Wii Vi isb that yotir ten years may beconte a hundred, and
thathundi'ed a thousand. Sttch is tiie vigor that you show
to-day after a decade of life that we feel sure we never
shall be called tipo)) to motirn your decadence. J give you
a sentiment: The Worcester Society of Antiqttity, Esto
per})etu.t, may it live loi'ever.

'• Worce>ter Journai:>ui."

Mr. J. p]varts Green of the AVorccster >S/>y said as
he iiddre^sed the Worcester people daily, he would
excuse liiniseU from an evening -peech.

".ArclKToloj:y and General Histoiy."

Mr. William IL Bartlett. Principal of the Dix
Street Scliool, ppoke in response to this sentiment as
follow.s :

Si'EECH OF Mil. William H. Baktlett.

But little more tlum a ccnuiry ago it would have seemed
iiupc.ssible that man ^hollld ever have a delh-iitL' and eoni-
plete knowledue of the foundation and structure of the
eartli whieh lie iidiahiis. But the animal anil vegetable
forms whieh had suceessively ai^i-cared and disapp-ared,
left their fossil remaiiis in the successively deposited strata ;
and thus was constituted a Look, written as it were by the
Creator himself— a book whose leaves were the s^tratified
rocks, wliose chapters, the mountain chains. For ages
that book v/as closed to the vision of man ; but the eartli-
quake and the torrent, the terrible and august ministers of
Almighty j.ower, rent the solid earth and opened the seals
of that most ancient of records, written in indelible char-
acters on the -perpetual hills and everlasting mountains."
Science, ever extending tiie boundaries of her realm,
taught her votaries to read that record, and to-day we be-
hold tlie geologist tmfolding the past ages of the woi'ld
with a variety of details and a certainty of conclusions
whieh call forth our gratitude and admiration.

The development of arelaeology has been very similar
to that of geology. In fact we may regard the arclueologist
as a new kind of' geologist. But a few years ago compara-
tively the wisest men would have smiled at the idea of re-
construcling tlie by-gone days previous to the beginning
of liistory, properly so-called. The void was filled partly by
representing that pre-historic period as of short duration,
and ])artly by exaggerating the importance of vague and con-
fused tradition. It seems to be with mankind at large mueli
as it is with single individuals. The recollections of our
earliest childhood have entirely faded away u]) to some par-
ticular event which struck us more forcibly aiul which ;done
has left a lasting image amid the surrounding darkness.
Thus the infancy of mankind passed away without leavmg

any recollections, and here liistcay fails us, fur liistory is
nothiTig but the memory of mankiuti.

But before liistory tlierc were life and industry of whicli
various monuments still exist, Avliile otliers lie buried m
the soil, much as we find the organic remains of former
living creatures in tlic strata composing the crust of the
earth. These meraorials of antiquity in the hands of the
arcluoologist enact a part similar to that of the fossils in
geology. ^ By applying to them the geologic method the
arclueologist is lib'le to reconstruct the first ages of man-
kind, and work out what may be called pre-historic his-
tory c r

It was in following out these principU'S that the Scandi-
navian Savans succeeded in gaining that great conquest in
the realm of science, namely, the unravelling of the lead-
ing features of pre-historic European civilization and in
distinguishing the three principal eras which they mimed
tlic stone age, the bronze age, and the iron age. These
illustrious explorers have sliown us that Europe, at pres-
ent so civilized, was first inhabited by rude tribes to
wliom tlie use of metals was uiiknown, and whose indus-
try and liabits must have borne a considerable analogy to
what v>-e now know to be practiced among certain savages.
This was known as the stone age, which might also be
called the first phase of civilization. To this succeeded
the bronze age, in which a higher type of civilization was
developed, succeeded by tliat metal of dingy appearance,
but more valuable than gold or silver, more precious indeed
than rubies— iron, whose appearance gave a wonderful im-
petus to the progressive march of mankind, and character-
ized the third g^reat phase in civilization called the iron
age. From thence we date the dawn of history and science.
^Tlius archaeology has sketched for us the develoi.nncnt
of civilization, and" established in a striking manner the
fact of a progress sure but uninterrupted and immense,

M'heii the starting ])oiiit is' consiJered, sliowiny tliut tlic
human race has been gradually growing in vigor and
strength sinee tlie remotest antiquity.

Standing on the vantage ground of former diseovc'rics,
and uniting the fruits of the researches of tlie "wise men of
the past v.-ith our own observations, it is tlie mission of
cur Society, and otb.L-rs of a Idndred character, to extend
the limits of archaeological science by exploring the ricli
and valuable fields of investigation yet undisturbed.
