    Excerpt from Josiah Quincy, the Great Mayor: An Address Delivered Before the Massachusetts Society for Promoting Good Citizenship, at the Old South Meeting-House, Boston, Feb, 25, 1889

    IN front of the City Hall are two statues in bronze one of Benjamin Franklin, and the other of Josiah Quincy. The artist has represented Franklin in his Old age and the culminated splendor of his fame, revisiting, as he had often. Expressed a desire to do, the city of his birth, and standing in reverential attitude, with uncovered head, before the spot hallowed by memories of the old Boston Latin School, in which he received the rudiments of his education. No better site could have been chosen. With equal felicity of position Josiah Quincy, in the prime of manhood, stands on the Opposite side of the inclosure, before the most august sym bol of the city which he had done so much to build up and adorn. -as works of art these statues provoked the vituperative eloquence of Boston's most gifted orator, and I hear that they divide the Opinions of experts. However this may be, the characters they commemorate gain in respect with the passing years and the Spread of letters.
