Century Memorial

The missing names of Foster and of Randolph & Goodrich [sic: Goodridge] recal[l] to us those old fashioned ideas of probity and of energy which are the basis of all true success in life, and with the respect we feel for their moral worth there blends the remembrance of liberal acts and kindly intercourse to soften the regret that these should have become things of the past.
