Excerpt from Proceedings at the Dedication of the Lincoln Library, Massachusetts: August 5, 1884; With an Appendix Fellow-citizens and friends, We meet to dedicate this building, set apart for the use of the people of this town, a gift from one of our citizens. Mr. Tarbell is a native of Lincoln. He left it at an early age to engage in mercantile pursuits, and after a successful business career returned to the home of his childhood. He is now about to present to the town this beautiful building. It is thorough in construction, and Will stand for ages in its strength and beauty, an ever-present reminder of him who gave it. With this great gift there are no burden some restrictions. It is a full, free offering of love to this people; and those into whose charge it is to be given have responsible duties to perform. They are responsible not only for the faithful discharge of the trust reposed in them, but also for the strict observance of the Wishes of the giver. For this gift, sir [turning to the donor], and for all the good that will come from it in the future, you have the gratitude and affection of your fellow-citizens.
