THE ROMANTIC STORY of the MAYFLOWER PILGRIMS

ALBERT CHRISTOPHER ADDISON]

[Illustration

Well worthy to be magnified are they Who, with sad hearts, of friends and country took A last farewell, their loved abodes forsook, And hallowed ground in which their fathers lay.

Wordsworth]

[Illustration

The breaking waves dash'd high On a stern and rock bound coast; And the woods, against a stormy sky, Their giant branches toss'd.

Mrs. Hemans]

High ideals in the conduct of life are what survive, and that is why the Pilgrim Narrative stands forth in the pages of every history as one of the great events of the time. SENATOR LODGE, at the dedication of the Pilgrim Memorial Monument at Provincetown, August 5th 1910 .
