Excerpt from The Promises of the Declaration of Independence: Eulogy on Abraham Lincoln, Delivered Before the Municipal Authorities of the City of Boston, June 1, 1865
IN the universe of God there are no accidents. From the fall of a sparrow to the fall Of an empire, or the. Sweep of a planet, all is according to Divine Providence, Whose laws are everlasting. It was no accident which gave to his country the patriot Whom we now honor. It was no accident which snatched this patriot, so suddenly and so cruelly, from his sublime duties. Death is as little of. An accident as life. Perhaps never in history has this Providence been more conspicuous than in that recent procession Of events, where the final triumph was wrapt in the gloom of tragedy. It will be our duty to catch the moral Of this stupendous drama.
