Excerpt from A Sketch of the Life of Joseph Leidy, M.D., LL. D
A more affectionate tribute has seldom been paid in this city to the memory of a votary of science. Ample testimony was adduced that Dr. Leidy had attained distinction among scientific men at home and abroad, and that he had the warm sympathy and respectful regard of all those members of the Society with whom he had been in any degree associated.
In the first hours, while a great bereavement is still fresh, love and admiration so obstruct perception that the extent of the loss sustained may be sometimes overstated. But let whoever may conjecture that in this instance some of the addresses were too fervid, consult the cold rec ords of the Academy in which are faithfully set down his works since he entered the Society, and he will find that they justify the encomiums pronounced.
