Excerpt from The Higher Education a Public Duty: An Address Delivered at the Commencement of the College of the City of New York; June 21st, 1888

Gentlemen of the Graduating Class:

I wish the resources of our language could furnish me some new form of cordial salutation with which to address you on the occasion which has brought us within these walls - an occasion which can only be regarded by each of you personally as a most important event, because it marks the ending of your college course and tells you that the happy period of youth is past and the sober realities of manhood have begun. You have received your academical degrees and you are about to go forth from the halls of your Alma Mater to enter upon the future career which shall give you your crown or your condemnation.

In the name of the Board of Trustees, and in my own name, I extend to you heartfelt congratulations.
