    Excerpt from Lessons From Our North Carolina Records: An Address Read Before the Faculty and Students of Trinity College, November 27, 1888

    Mr. President and Gentlemen of Trinity College:

    Some six months and more ago when I received President Crowell's kind invitation to deliver the address on this occasion I hesitated what to say in reply. I knew how uncertain my health was; I knew, too, that we were on the eve of one of our great American quadrennial political struggles, in which all matters merely historical would be sent well to the rear, and I feared it would be an injustice to Trinity as well as to myself to accept. On the other hand, the invitation gratified me. It gratified me, for one thing, because the subject assigned to me for discussion was North Carolina; and then, too, for purely personal reasons, I was specially gratified that the invitation came from Trinity.

    From my present helpless condition one would scarcely think so, but the fact is that during the late war I had the honor to command a regiment in Lee's army, and one of my companies. Company G, was composed at its organization almost entirely of Trinity men, boys I might almost say, very many of them were; and the remembrance of that company has always made a warm spot in my heart for Trinity. And well does its memory deserve to be cherished, for your college register as well as its own roster bears mournful attest how faithful it was, even unto death. Therefore, when Trinity called, it was not in me to refuse, to make the effort, at least, to come. And then too a lesson I learned from old Company G, was that every North Carolinian must go promptly and cheerfully to the front whenever called upon for service in behalf of North Carolina, and so, Mr. President and gentlemen, I am here to-day.

    With this much by way of preface I proceed to my subject.

    Ninety-nine years ago. North Carolina, through her delegates in convention assembled in the town of Fayetteville, ratified the Federal Constitution, and thereupon became the twelfth State of the new Government. That event we celebrate to-day. Taking it, then, as a starting point and going back to the beginning of the Revolution that led up to it, two things are apparent from our records:

    1. That North Carolina after freeing herself from the British Government was unwilling to bind herself to any other government before considering well its provisions and until proper limitations were put upon its powers for evil, and that in this matter she would trust nothing to chance or the future, and that she viewed with a specially jealous eye the powers demanded for the Federal Government.
