Excerpt from Letters and Addresses: Contributed at a General Meeting of the Military Service Institution Held at Governor's Island, N. Y. H., February 25, 1886, in Memory of Winfield Scott Hancock Hancock was the impersonation of modesty and valor. Not vain Of his scars, but proud that bullets aimed at the heart of the Republic had been intercepted by his body. Newly-made graves are the garden-spots Of the purest and most exalted sentiments. A few of the ﬂowers of thought and feeling that sprang from the grave Of General Hancock, gathered in the freshness of their bloom, are pressed between the cov ers of this Monograph, in the hope that they may preserve their hues and fragrance, keep his memory green, afford comfort to the bereaved, encouragement to men, and ex press in some degree the prevailing sentiment concerning one of the best soldiers and purest men that our country has produced.
