THE ORDINANCE OF 1787

ADDRESS OF HON. CYRUS G. LUCE

Michigan has been invited to participate with its sister states in this celebration. A monument will be erected in honor of the occasion, and I trust that our state, ever foremost in good works, in enterprise and in energy, will devise some method to raise means in aid of the erection of this monument. The Pioneer Society representing the early settlers, will doubtless give consideration to this important subject. The legislature has authorized the governor to appoint a commission of five to represent the state on the occasion of the celebration. It must be a. labor of love and of devotion, because no compensation is provided for the delegates, but I doubt not that patriotic, generous men will be found who will do honor to our state in this gathering of the children of the ordinance of 1787.
