Centennial: The American Negro from 1776-1876; Oration Delivered at Avondale, Ohio, 1876
			
    "We die, but leave an influence behind us that survives.  The echoes
of our words are evermore repeated, and reflected along the ages.  It is
what man was that lives and acts after him.  What he said sounds along
the years like voices amid the mountain gorges; and what he did is re-
peated after him in ever-multiplying and never-ceasing reverberations."--
Cumming.
                 "Our fathers to their graves have gone;
                  Their strife is past, their triumph won;
                  But sterner trials wait the race
                  Which rises in their honored place--
                  A moral warfare with the crime
                  And folly of an evil time."- Whittier.
