Memorial of Noah Porter, D. D : Late of Farmington, Conn (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Memorial of Noah Porter, D. D: Late of Farmington, Conn I appear before you to-day, my friends and fellow Christians, with the feeling that it is a high privilege and honor to stand in this pulpit and give my testimony to the worth of the venerable man who is'now no more. I feel also that it is a duty I owe to the memory of one with whom I was most pleasantly associated during the sixteen years when we were together members of the Corporation of Yale College. Still more, a long inti macy with his son, who is traveling across the water to recover health and strength after exhaustive labors, persuades me that there is a certain propriety in my paying a public tribute of respect to a father whom he so much reveres. And yet may I not say that I come here with embarrassment, partly because I fail in that minute and circumstantial knowledge which is so im portant on occasions like these, and partly because you all know the venerable man at whose funeral we are gathered, so well, that you need no description of his life and character, and because you honor him with such unqualified honor, that he needs no eulogy.
