Excerpt from General Lafayette to the Lafayette Female Academy in Lexington, Kentucky, May 16, 1825, and the Exercises in Honour of the Nation's Guest: Together With a Catalogue of the Instructers, Visiters, and Pupils, of the Academy

We did you welcome! As the friend of our country, as "the guest of the nation," as the friend and favorite of our once beloved, but now sainted Washington; as the friend, the advocate, the liberator of universal man, we bid you welcome! In the name of these respectable Fathers and Visiters of the Lexington Female Academy, we bid you a most cordial welcome, within these humble walls, devoted to the cultivation of the female mind.

Pardon, Sir, the eager gaze, with which our eyes are fixed upon you. In your venerable features we read the history of half a century; a half-century distinguished by the most splendid, the most tremendous, the most astonishing events to be found in the annals of the world; events, exhibiting the grand march of human intellect, attended with consequences the most interesting and beneficial to man: and, with what propriety might you add, in the language of Æneas, "et quorum pars magna fui."

Yes, Sir, you have lived in an eventful era. You have witnessed the disruption of social order, the mighty shaking of nations, the agonizing struggles of the oppressed against the oppressor. Nor have you been an idle spectator. No, Sir, you read the signs of the times and foresaw the rising tempest.
