It was evident from j the first, that Mr. Schriver had received received his. education in from the .same schooling English as did Lincoln, whose early library consist" ed of the Bible, Hale's History of the United States, a history of j George Washington, Pilgrinr's press, Robinson Crusoe, and Aesop's; Fables," a group which the speaker; considered an improvement on Dr. Kiliott's shelf of books. Simple, ac- curate language, short sentences of pith, all presenter! in a logical manner, made of the address a les-i son in English as forceful as it was a presentation of history and acter building. The few statements made, relative to the historical ditioas both at home and abroad, I today, were the more impressive, deductions from past history, told in a brief and straightforward man- ner. which did not distract the from the main subject. Toward the! of the address, the speaker! " said. "HaviBsr read the history of many great men. and of great na-i tions.

Lincoln, whom Bryce considered the: "first American, the second English- man and one of the greatest men . the world." Mr. Schriver'e own ! Camming up of this man whom t worid now loves and honors, was worthy to be remembered. It an a "Abraham Lincoln had the heart a motheT;..the mind of a philosopher: the ability' of a statesman." ; p1 . The service -was dosed with the! singing of "America." and the diction, pronounced by the Rev. Stowe. ·
