Excerpt from The Century, Its Fruits and Its Festival: Being a History and Description of the Centennial Exhibition, With a Preliminary Outline of Modern Progress
A much longer period than six months would have been required for the thorough study of the Centennial display. But a far shorter one sufficed for the formation of sound and useful impressions. Well worth scrutiny with the microscope, it was still eloquent and in structive to the naked eye. He who ran, even, might read, if he ran often enough and on courses systematically laid out. The account here given and conclusions stated are the result of many visits 'de finitely planned and memoranda made on the spot. For both note and comment, it should be added, the writer is solely responsible.
In no instance has he taken at second hand description or conclusion.
