Description

Excerpt from An Introductory Discourse, Delivered Before the Literary and Philosophical Society of New-York, on the Fourth of May, 1814 In compliance with the solemnity expected on this occasion, I rise to address this respectable audience. For the first time (has an association been established and incorporated in this state, devoted'to literature and philosophy. Although I have always ardently cherished the love of let ters, yet I am fully sensible that neither my attainments nor my talents entitle me to this place. On my zeal and my industry, however, the fullest reliance may be placed; for although not a minister otliciating at the holy altar of science, yet you shall always find me a sincere and humble worshipper at the vestibule of the temple. It is with societies as it is with individuals; if the first impression he favourable, it gives a. Tone to character which is attended with the most auspicious e 'ects in every future stage of existence as somewhat of the colour of our social character may depend on this first appearance on the theatre hf public observation, you may judge of my embarrassment on this occasion.
