Excerpt from A Discourse Delivered at the Annual Election, January 4, 1832: Before His Excellency Levi Lincoln, Governor, His Honor Thomas L. Winthrop, Lieutenant Governor, the Honorable Council, and the Legislature of Massachusetts
To express this respect, and gratefully to recog nize Divine Providence in the conduct and destiny of all human affairs and governments, we are now, after the example of pious ancestors, assembled in this consecrated temple to present thank-offerings for his abundant mercies to our land, and devoutly to seek his aid for the rulers and his blessing for the people of the Commonwealth.
