Michigan

By. H. G. Wells

This I suppose was an exaggeration, and I mention it to show what the politicians will sometimes resort to in lieu of proper argument. He was a man of large ability, natural and acquired, and history will accord to him great excellence of character in every respect. If his reputation should stand on his literary acquirements alone, it would not be limited to the nation that gave him birth. A distinguished citizen of Michigan, in his address at the laying of the corner-stone of the new capitol, said that all the governors and acting governors of the State of Michigan " had proved faithful and true to their trusts." Beyond question this statement is true of the dead governors, and I only intend to speak of the dead in this address. You can always make the best estimate of a man's character and qualities when he has ceased to be, when he is gone, so that he can no more jostle his fellow-men.
