The Destiny of the Races of This Continent free pdf Excerpt from The Destiny of the Races of This Continent: An Address Delivered Before the Mercantile Library Association of Boston, Massachusetts, on the 26th of January, 1859 Mr. Blair was introduced by John H. Pillsbury, Esq., President of the Association, and said: Mr. President and Ladies and Gentlemen: The presumption of appearing in this place, so exalted, argues a temerity of which I beg you to believe me incapable, of my own mere motion. I have been pressed into this adventure by good friends, who would not have me forfeit, by failure, here, the little reputation that I have at home. They must, then, rely upon the generous sympathies of this refined audience to disarm criticism in favor of one who hazards himself at their bidding, to gratify you with the novelty of a backwoodsman in the literary character of a lecturer for Boston. I deprecate, in advance, all judgment of my effort by the standard you are accustomed to apply. Born and bred among the hunters of Kentucky, attaining manhood in Missouri while still the Far West, and finishing my education as a companion of the Rangers of the Rocky Mountains, I should deserve derision if I came here to make a display of scholarship or eloquence, here, where a long line of illustrious orators, filling the first half of this century with an eloquent renown, vicing with that conferred by the great masters of the art of oratory upon Athens and Rome, is succeeded by another, which now promises to keep the crown for the Bay State, and its academic city, for centuries to come. The inspiration which thus triumphs through successive generations had its origin in that blood from which has arisen the lofty monument that looks down upon your city, its surrounding hills and villas, and the rolling ocean. That inspiration has lifted up a loftier and more enduring monument in the divine power of epic speech, which has given your city an elevation and illumination which attracts the eye of all our land, and sheds its rays beyond the Atlantic. Here the throes of the Revolution gave birth to the infant Hercules, that in this cradle crushed the Hydras of a vast military power, and by this first labor quickened the heroic spirit now throbbing in the bosoms of the oppressed throughout the world. Here is the forum where Freedom nerved eloquence to exhort to its achievement and secure its conquests forever on this continent.
