Excerpt from Complete Works of the Most Rev. John Hughes, D.D., Archbishop of New York, Vol. 2: Comprising His Sermons, Letters, Lectures, Speeches, Etc

The substance of a Discourse on the Life and Character of the Most Rev. Archbishop Hughes delivered in St. Bridget's Church, New York, February 28th 1864, by the Might Rev. James Roosevelt Bayley, D.D., Bishop of Newark.

In speaking of the lamented Archbishop of New York, I do not intend to make a formal eulogy, much less to attempt a full and complete picture of his life and character. To do this as it should be done, would need more eloquent lips than mine and a broader canvass. Still, as I was united to him for many years as his confidential secretary, and, I may be permitted to add, as his intimate friend, I have thought that it would interest you, if in a simple familiar way I were to tell you what I knew of him, and his labors for the Church of God. The memory of such a man should not be permitted to die out amongst us; and all these various appreciations which have been, or will be made, will help to bring out his character and services to religion more fully, and aid us to form a correct, enduring, and instructive remembrance of him.

The Most Reverend Archbishop Hughes was, it may be said, without any exaggeration, an extraordinary man. His name will always occupy a high place in the list of eminent men whom Ireland has given with such rich profusion to the service of the Church and of the State in every part of the world. Of him, it may be said, though not in the sense in which the poet wrote the words, that he was "born to greatness." He would have been a distinguished man anywhere, and under any circumstances. No proscription of caste or weight of penal laws could ever have kept him down.
