Excerpt from Address of John Randolph Tucker, Esq.: Delivered Before the Phoenix and Philomathean Societies, of William and Mary College, on the 3d of July, 1854; Published at the Request of the Two Societies

Gentlemen of the Phoenix and Philomathean Societies:

The circumstances which have concurred to call me to address you, I will be ever regarded as among the most pleasant of my life. Among them I shall highly cherish the unexpected partiality which suggested your invitation, and the courtesy which has marked my reception among you.

Few places in the world have for me a deeper personal interest than this. Amid the greetings of kindly welcome, I have missed the warm cordiality of one whose devotion to its prospective advancement was only equalled by his intense veneration for its former) renown; and while it is with natural sadness I recur to associations) which are past forever, it affords me high gratification to visit Williamsburg as the home, and this literary institution as the school of a generation of my own family, whose names are embalmed in the) memory of its descendants.)

But my feelings as a citizen of Virginia, in looking upon the scenes which, with the lapse of time, cluster in classic beauty about I the venerable edifices and ruins of this old borough, make it to me a spot sacred to the sentiment of patriotism. We stand in the ancient Capital of the Colony of the Old Dominion. There, were those mouldering heaps, where standing walls once heard the indignant cry of Henry's patriot voice, awakening a continent to revolution, and its colonies to independence. There stands in its rude and misshapen - but to us interesting plainness, the "Old Raleigh," where power heard its noblest lesson of submission to the demands of liberal principles.
