Excerpt from Tribute to Gallaudet: A Discourse in Commemoration of the Life, Character and Services of the Rev. Thomas H. Gallaudet, LL. D

We shall make no apology for devoting the pages of our Journal for January and February to the life, character and services of that wise educator, distinguished philanthropist and Christian gentleman, the Rev. Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet.

Rev. Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet, LL. D., died on the 10th of September, 1851, and was buried on the 12th of the same month, after impressive religious services in the South Congregational Church, which was crowded with mourning friends, the officers and members of the public institutions with which the deceased was connected in life, and with citizens generally. The loss which society and the cause of religion had thus sustained was duly commemorated and improved in several churches of the city on the Sabbaths immediately following. But it was still a very general wish that exercises of a more public character should be had, in which the citizens of Hartford generally might participate.

In pursuance of a call signed by thirty of the principal citizens of Hartford, a preliminary meeting was held in the Lecture Room of the Center Church, on the evening of the 20th of October, 1851, in reference to the adoption of measures for some public tribute of respect to his memory.

The meeting was called to order by Governor Seymour, and organized by the appointment of Hon. Thomas Day, Chairman, and Luzerne Rae, Secretary.

A series of resolutions was presented by the Rev. William W. Turner, which, after brief remarks by the mover, the Hon. Seth Terry, the Rev. Dr. Bushnell, and other gentlemen, were unanimously adopted.
