referred to General Lee us "the
jreatest man who has ever adorned
the presidency of an institutin of
learning, not merely within Virginia,
VA merely within h South, but I
dare also to say within the limits
of the American Republic." He de
clared that the Confederate general's
work at the head of the institution
will some day "rest like a capital
upon ihe solid shaft of his civic and
military renown." The life and
services of Robert E. Lee, he said,
is the institution's largest asset, its
richest tradition, and" its noblest
memory. The president referred to
the fact that all sectional strife and
sectional hate had ended and that
students are now in attendance at the
university from every section of the
country and declared that it was n
genuine pleasure to welcome a great
citizen of Massachusetts, a trallant
soldier and officer in the Union army,
who bore himself as bravely in bat

versary of the birth
Robert E. Lee:
Gentlemen: I regret that it is not
in my power to be with you at your
celebration. I join with you in hon
oring the life and career of that
great soldier and high-minded citi
zen whose fame is now a matter of
pride to all our' countrymen. Terrible
as the destruction of the civil war
was, it was awful that such a con
flict should occur between brothers,
it is yet a matter of gratitude on the
part of all Americans that this, alone
among the contests of like magnitude,
should have left both sides as a price
less heritage the memory of the
mighty men and the glorious deeds
that the iron days brought forth.
The courage and steadfast endurance
the lofty fealty to the right as it
was given to each man to see the
right, whether, he wore the Gray or
whether he wore the Blue, now make
tbe memories of the valiant feats.
aiiKe ol those who served under Grant
and those who served under Lee, prec
ious to all good Americans. General
Lee has left us the memory, not mere
ly of his extraordinary skill as a gen
eral, his dauntless courage and high
leadership m campaign and battle,
but also of that serene greatness of
soul characteristic of those who most
readily recognize the obligation of
civic duty. Once the war was over
he instantly undertook the tack of
healing and binding up the wounds of
his countrymen, in the true spirit of
those ; who feel malice toward none
and charity toward all; in that spir
it which from the throes of the civil
war brought forth the real and indis-
soluable Union of today. It was em
inently fitting that this great man,
this war-worn veteran of a mighty
struggle, who, at its close, simply and
quietly undertook his duty as a plain,
everyday citizen, bent only upon
helping his people in the paths of
peace and tranquility, should turn his
attention toward educational work;
toward bringing up in fit fashion the
younger generation, the sons of those
who had proved their faith by their
endeavor in the heroic days.
There is no need to dwell on Gen
eral Lee's record as a soldier. The
son of, Light Horse Harry Lee, of
the Revolution, he came naturally by
his aptitude fox arms and command.
His campaigns put him in the fore
most rank of the captains of all time.
But his signal valor and address in
war are no more remarkable than the
spirit in which he tarrfiti to the
work of peaee once the war was ov
er. Tfee ciccnmsfance's tcere ssth that

felt bitter and vindicative or depress-
ea ana spiritless, out General Lee 7$
heroie temper was not warpeinor his
great soul east down. He stood thai
hardest of all stra; the strains of
strive f6r harinOnjTrgtWd-tieli
and devote their abilities to tbe in
terests of their people and the heal-
iuk of dlssenlions. To every one who
applied to him, this was the advice
be gave: Although absolutely with
out means, he refused all offers of pe
cuniary aid, and all positions of emol
umiiiit, although many such; 'jit a high
salary, were offered bim. He declin
ed to go abroad, saying that be'
sought only "a place to earn honest
bread while engaged in some useful
work." This statement brought him
the offer of the presidency of Wash
ington College, a little institution in
Lexington, irginia, which had grown
out of n modest foundation known ai
liberty Hall Academy. Washington
had endowed this academy with one
hundred shares of stock that had
been given him by the Slate of Vir
pinia, which he had accepted only oil
condition that he might with them
endow some educational institution.
To the institution which Washington
helped to found in such spirit, Lee,
hi the same fine spirit gave his ser
vices. He accepted the position of
president at a salary of $1,500 a yeat
in order, as he stated, that he might
do some good to the youth of the
South He applied himself to his
new work with the same singleness
of mind which he had showed in lead
ing the army of Northern Virginia.
All the time by word and deed he
was striving for the restoration of
real peace, of real harmony, never
uttering a word of bitterness nor al
lowing a word of bitterness uttered
in his presence to go unchecked. From
the close of the war to the time of
his death all his great powers were
devoted to the two objects; to the
reconciliation of all his count rymen
with one another, and to fitting the
youth of the South for the duties of
a lofty and broad minded citizenship.
Such is the career that you gather
to honor; and I hope that vou will
take advantage of the one-hundredth
anniversary of General Lee's birth by
appealing to all onr people, in every
section of this country, to commen
orate his life and deeds by the es
tablishment at som? great represen
tative educational institution of the
South of a permanent memorial, that
will service the youth of the coming
years, as he, in the closing years of
his life, served those who so sorely
needed what he so freely gave.
