1 have not hesitated to appropriate whatever I have found that appeared essential to the completeness of this Memorial. Accuracy and fulness have been sought rather than originality.A good and wise man is a blessing to his generation.

But he dies and the generation passes away. Apparently the blessing dies with him. Not so. The world is better for his life. Not Chicago only, but every part of the land which Chicago influences is other than it would have been but for the work of Philo Carpenter- and that though not one word more should ever be written of him, though no portrait or bust should show us how he looked, and no stone should tell us where he sleeps. Yet a true historical sketch of the man will be welcomed by coming generations, and this Society would not be faithful to its mission if it did not seek to preserve for them such a memorial.It is natural to ask first after a mans antecedents, and trace his lineage.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
