Excerpt from Westminster: Memorials of the City, Saint Peter's College, the Parish Churches, Palaces, Streets, and Worthies
Communion, sought with enlarged generous sentiments and love of our kind (not cramped into a barren study of mere antiquarianism), with the earlier times of our country is indeed as a golden thread of History linking us with the Past, will go far to repress that spirit of pedantic bigotry which stands self-landing aloof, and ignores all virtue, know lege, and beauty but that found in our own open our eyes to the fact that we cannot selfishly isolate ourselves in this world, but are responsible to the Future, and by our children shall be impartially judged, according as we withhold or transmit those legacies of good, which we may embody in every book, institution, and public work ing of our generation.
