Michigan

By. H. G. Wells

Read February 6, 1878.

It is always proper that we should give thanks to an overruling Providence for the benefits conferred upon us during life, for plain food, for clean and comfortable raiment, for pure water and an invigorating atmosphere. All these contribute to health, and without health the chance for happiness is limited. But while we are giving thanks for all these blessings, if on some fine, sunny Sunday morning, in our attendance at church the minister, in his fervent prayer, after recounting all other blessings, should sum up by thanking Divine wisdom that we have our homes in the State of Michigan, why should we not say Amen, and Amen ? In our preparation and struggle for admission as a State into the Union through the years 1835, 1836 and 1837, we were limited in population, resources and improvements, as compared with the Michigan of to-day; and yet we had then the foundation upon which has been built a superstructure to stand for centuries to come—a superstructure, many parts of which have been commended and copied by other States of this Union.
