New YORK, Dec. 31, 1839. Sir,
In behalf of the New England Society in the City of New York, and by their direction, it gives us much satisfaction to express to you their unfeigned thanks for the Oration pronounced by you, at their solicitation, in the Broadway Tabernacle in this City, on the 23d inst., upon the occasion of their public remembrance of the Anniversary of the * Landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth' in 1620 ; an Address, which, in the principles it recommended, and, in the historic research and statesmanlike views it disclosed, was so entirely worthy of the family name you bear; and one which, in the eloquence and power with which it took possession of the mind of the hearer, gave full proof that the City of Boston, in its public epeakers and leading minds, had not fallen away from the Town of Boston' of earlier days, and dearer associations. The Society carnestly request a copy for publication.
With great respect, we are
EDWARD S. GOULD, ROBERT C. WINTHROP, Esq.
Boston, JANUARY 10, 1840. GENTLEMEN,
I am deeply indebted to the New ENGLAND Society in the City of New York, for the favor with which they received my Address on the 23d ult., and to yourselves for the flattering terms in which you have requested a copy for the press. I have no hope that, on perusal, it will answer the expectations which such terms and such a reception would seem to justify;—but I cannot refuse to submit it to your disposal.
I am, very respectfully,
ROBERT C. WINTHROP. Joseph Hoxie, Esq., and others, Committee, &c.
