Excerpt from Half Century Discourse: Delivered November 16, 1828 at Concord, Massachusetts When I cast my eyes over the assembly that stat edly worships here, I see, not only many new faces, but a new face to the whole. Here and there only is a countenance which I beheld fifty years ago. Full well do I remember the white locks that adorned the long seats which here stretched before me. Now the heads that are white and grey were then on the shoulders of children. This house too is changed. I have not forgotten its former figure and inconvenience. There were two galleries flat and deep, and a high ceiling, which rendered speaking in it very difficult. But it has, long since, undergone a general repair, and been rendered handsome and convenient and easy for the speaker.
