Description

Excerpt from Special Report of the Committee on City Property, Relative to Sedgeley Park Such is the simple history of this noble gift to our citizens. In the list of the givers will be found the names of men whom we have been taught to regard as of the purest and best of our citizens, many of whom have won for themselves by long lives of probity and honor the confidence of all good men among us. Two of them - brothers - the worthy sons of an honored and faithful servant of the city of Philadelphia in her Councils - the late Thomas P. Cope - contributed each 0 them one of them an enlightened citizen of New York, having no interest in Philadelphia, gave $500, and another, a citizen of New Jersey, $100, and. Yet another, a Philadelphian by birth, but resident abroad for many years, sent as his contribution. We venture to assert, after the fullest inquiry, that a more noble act was never done by better men or from purer motives.
