[Boston Public Schools] Greenhalge, Frederic T. - Manuscript Draft of Massachusetts Governor Frederic T. Greenhalge's Speech to Boston Public School Graduates

[Boston], 1894. 4 pp. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches. Written on four sheets of Parker House Stationary, and prepared for the annual School Festival in Mechanics Hall for the year's graduates from Boston's Public Schools, on June 30th, 1894. Frederic Thomas Greenhalge (1842-1896) was a British-born Harvard graduate, who practiced law before he made the transition into Massachusetts politics. Greenhalge served as Mayor of Lowell, Massachusetts (1880-1881); was a member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives (1885); was a member of the US House of Representatives (1889-1891), and was the Massachusetts Governor -the first foreign born- from 1894 until his death in 1896. He abolished the annual Fast Day celebration, replacing it with Patriots' Day. "This my young friends, is a world - not of rest & recreation, except in evanescent moments - but of toil and trial - of stress & storm - and, thank Heaven, of achievement and triumph." [with] photo portrait of Greenhalge on a 4.5 x 7 inch card with printed signature "Compliments of The Republican Committee of Massachusetts." [with] clipping from the Boston Transcript, Saturday, June 30, 1894. Torn in half, with some loss, but contains complete transcript of the speech and description of the proceedings. Toned and torn along folds, but still very good.
