Excerpt from The Mayflower Town: An Address Delivered at the Two Hundred and Fiftieth Anniversary of the Incorporation of the Town of Duxbury, Mass;, June 17, 1887

I pray you let the dissolving view of another scene than this come to your inner vision. Picture yourselves at the doorstone of Miles Standish in the declining hours of a day in June, two centuries and a half ago. Gaze attentively upon the knots of people looking out upon the placid waters of yonder bay, and turning their eyes upon a mellowing sky beyond the Kingston Hills.

You can hardly mistake the master of the house. His three-and-fifty years have left some, if not heavy, marks upon a frame that in his younger days had borne the severities of campaigns in regular armies, and in his sterner manhood had endured the rigors of the wilderness. But you can see that his face still has the volatile lines which mark a nature quick in passion. His eye has still the alertness and his motions the rapidity of those earlier days when he fought in Flanders, and of the later ones when he braved the braggart Pecksnot in the cabin at Wessagusset, or quelled by his daring the revolt of Corbitant. We know by the inventory of his books that the "Commentaries of C?sar" was a household volume; and we may well conjecture how, with his children and Hobamok looking on, he could trace upon the sand, and place pebbles to mark, the marches and camps of the Roman Legions in Gaul.
